Q.Tree Philodendron Climbing On Frame

Zone 6070 | Anonymous added on May 20, 2022 | Answered

Hello I have two questions for growing lacy tree philodendrons outdoors I have been doing research on lacy tree philodendrons, i know that they wrap their areal roots around trees to anchor themselves to help them grow, would putting a few hardwood posts in the ground before planting one have the same effect? and since they grow two meters ish without a frame, if they were to climb on those posts would they continue to grow once they reach the top of the post now that it is anchored, or would it stop once reaching the top?

Yes, you can use those posts as a support for the philodendron, but no, it won't stop growing because the support ends.
