"My philodendron is growing out, not up."

"My philodendron is growing out, not up."

Did you know that some plants can be trained to grow the way you want them to? Here's a question we got recently about philodendrons!

Question: My Philodendron hope is growing out and drooping rather than growing up. Please help!

Answer: Philodendrons can be unruly! You can prune away stems you don't like to stimulate new growth! They take well to fertilizers also, and this is a great time of year to fertilize regularly!
