Make way - Imbe coming through! Give this tropical plant a wall to cling to, a tree trunk to twine around, or a mossy pole to climb up, and it will shoot up into the air, those huge leaves hanging down and covering its stems in a wall of green.
Plants outside in favourable climates - ie humid and warm, over 12C - can reach 5 metres or more; plants inside in a large lounge-room pot will be much shorter, thankfully!

Philodendron 'Imbe'
APPEARANCE:   Tropical fast-growing climbing plant from South America with evergreen glossy foliage in a long tapering heart-shape, up to 60cm long. Mature leaves develop a rippled edge and strong veins. Strong climbing habit with aerial roots that are sent down to look for moisture and anchor the plant.
USE IN: Tropical gardens and well lit frost-free patio areas. Suited to borders, undergrowth planting and containers. Indoor climber.
LOCATION:  A partly shaded position in the garden, out of direct sunlight. Suited to warm climates, high humidity, and sheltered areas. Protect from cold and wind. Plant in a free draining soil rich in organic matter.  A potting mix rich with peat moss or humus is ideal.
CARE: Water regularly during the first 12 weeks until the plant is established; then afterwards when the soil surface is dry. Water less in winter. Mist often in dry locations and when growing indoors. Feed with diluted fertiliser for foliage plants monthly spring-autumn, to ensure lush growth. Wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust.
YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide
