Q.Can I Relocate A VERY LARGE, Outdoor Philodendron?

Zone Perth | Anonymous added on May 19, 2021 | Answered

And more to the point: will it survive? I’m about 70kms south of Perth. I want to separate and move the front part of the larger plant to open up the front window area and gain easier access to the hose which is behind it. The main part is actually on the left– goes to the back and holds five main upright stems, which I’m leaving as-is. It’s only the piece to the right that “escaped” and now blocks hose access and visibility through the windows. I can’t tell if there are any sustainable roots in the right-hand trunk unless I dig it all up….It feels like I can move it a bit, but it’s heavy! I wanted to know if I did move it, should I bury a part of that trunk, or just try to bury whatever roots are present and then stake it up in place? If there’s a proper season for this, that would also be helpful. Any experts here on Philodendrons?

I would cut off the wayward trunk near the main trunks. Then try to root the top portion. Cut the horizontal trunk off and root the remaining straight trunk and foliage.
