I've seen Philodendron bipinnatifidum used as both a house plant and an outdoor plant providing some tropical flavor to the scenery. Recently, I was walking down a path lined with these plants. I felt as as though I was being watched. When I stopped to check out what was going on I noticed something. I was alone with the Philodendrons but I couldn't help but notice something about them. In a figure of speech, they were watching me. I noticed the crazy 'eyes' left from where the leaf petiole separates from the trunk of the plant. They even have big ol' 'eye lashes'! Kinda strange but very...intriguing! I actually find it to be kind of cool. The pattern they make sort of reminds me of a carving on a totem pole or a tiki image. Got a poolside bar? Why not plant a few of these babies around it for that tiki touch! Want to throw a little tropical tone into that mid-century scene? Find some cool streamline containers that can feature these tropical tantrums and their crazy 'eyes'. Cue up the Hall and Oates and you've got a party!
