Q.

How Close Can I Plant A Philodenron Bipinnatifidum To The House?

I have an area designated for tropical looking plants, and had a philodenron bipinnatifidum that i want to plant there. It's within 1.5 meters to the house, and also has a weed mat underneath. I am concerned if the roots are going to cause any structural damage to the house in future?

They aren't known for destructive roots, and it seems that the area is far enough away to be of little concern. I don't see any indication that this could be harmful.
