Philodendrons Fallen Leaf


Philodendrons Fallen Leaf

This is the first leaf that has reached ol dage on the philodendron, just turned orange and plopped off. The plant is just starting to bloom, I'm taken that it dropped this leaf same time. Interesting.

I couldn't let this leaf go! :-) I used it like a fan a few days, just to give it something to do. It's almost older than my cat!

Great photo! Yes, I know most species of Philodendron hold on to their leaves for a long time. I have Philodendron 'Congo' which I've had for many years...I finally cut some of the leaves off. lol! : > )

I couldn't let this one go! And it was all the more beautiful that it aged this wonderful orange before it was dropped, right in front of me as I GOYed. :-) Altogether fantastic. I'd have a rough time of it, removing leaves, I'd end up with a tray full of new starts. :-)

Come here to San Diego...I'll give plenty of Philodendron leaves. lol! I have several Philodendron species...however, my Philodendron 'Congo' has leaves to 6 or 7 feet long (including the petiole).

"I'd have a rough time of it, removing leaves, I'd end up with a tray full of new starts." The words of a true plantoholic. LOL! I known because I'm one also.
