The Tree Philodendron is a stunning, one of a kind specimen plant that is not only a rarer species to come across, but delivers some seriously impressive jungle-vibes without much fuss at all. Although it may look like a bit of an unruly beast, this plant requires simple care in the way of bright light and watering when the soil is dry. The only extra care is to gently remove any yellowing leaves when they’re ready to shed - to reveal his trunk-like stem underneath. A really amazing floor standing showpiece for a larger space.

Big leaves

The leaves on this plant can reach up 2ft in length at maturity, though enjoy them while they last as they’ll shed as it grows.


A particular characteristic of this plant is the eye-like leaf scars left behind on the ‘trunk’ of the plant as leaves shed. 

Name changer

Officially, this plant is no longer a Philodendron as its name was changed roughly three years ago.

Thaumatophyllum bipinnatifidum
Plant Bio

Thaumatophyllum bipinnatifidum is a tropical broadleaf evergreen native to South America, in particular Paraguay, Bolivia and Brazil.

A member of the Araceae family.

The genus Thaumatophyllum translates to miracle leaf and some leaves they are!

Also commonly called: Split Leaf Philodendron, Lacy Tree Philodendron. (It is however no longer classified as a philodendron species).

Syn. Philodendron selloum, Philodendron bipinnatifidum.


Light Tree Philodendrons start their life in the understory, gradually growing themselves upwards towards the light via their ‘trunk’. Therefore, they will thrive in lots of bright light at home, with filtered or passing sunlight for a few hours daily.

Water & Humidity They are relatively tolerant of drought, though extended dry periods will stunt growth and cause droopy stems! Water when the top few inches / half the pot is dry, ensuring that it doesn’t sit in water.

Temperature Will go dormant under 10°C, grow in temperatures above 15°C for the healthiest plant.
