    • Philodendrons are native to tropical regions of the Americas, including the Amazon rainforest and other parts of Central and South America.
    • Philodendrons are known for their air-purifying qualities and can help remove pollutants like formaldehyde and benzene from the air.
    • A "self-heading" Philodendron refers to a type of Philodendron plant that grows upright and does not vine or climb in the way that some other members of the Philodendron genus do. Unlike the climbing or trailing varieties that require support to grow upwards and can spread out significantly if allowed, self-heading Philodendrons have a more compact, bushy growth habit, producing leaves from a central base or trunk.
