repotting and/or dividing huge Philodendron
This plant has been in this pot way too long and I'm determined to finally do something I used to bring it outside for the summer until it got too heavy. I think that was about 4-5 years ago. So its way overdue. Notice the aerial roots coming out too.
I am contemplating whether I should divide it or root prune it?
I like the fullness that it is now (even though it needs a little help staying up!). I plan on reusing the same pot or maybe a new one but the same size. Over the years it has lost old leaves from the base.
I am also curious if I should place it lower so those aerial roots are below the soil level?
Actually I took these pictures a few months ago. The roots are bigger and part brown now.
