Creating a trailing philodendron scandens

Zone N10 2RD | Nicholas Williams added on January 17, 2018 | Answered

Hi everyone, I'm trying to get a really long trailing philodendron scandens but all I can find are those supported by moss poles or wire frames. I don't have much hope separating them from a moss pole but I wondered if it was possible to uncouple them (or just cut the wire piece by piece) from a wire frame to create a long trailing plant? Appreciate any advice! Thanks

You can do this as long as you do not damage any portion of the plant while doing so. I do recommend leaving it to climb, but it would, certainly, survive trailing.
