do I nudge aerial roots into he ground?
I love this philodendron "prince of orange". It's been putting out new leaves like clockwork for me - very pretty. I just recently noticed the plant has these cool-looking aerial roots growing from right on top of where each of the lower more mature leaves are growing. Very cool, and I am pretty sure they were not there when I got the plant back in May.
I love the look, generally the more natural the better - but I wonder if I'll help or hurt the plant if I keep training these roots into the mix as they grow. A couple are already long enough that they can be easily inserted into the ground and directed downward. Should I do that? I would rather not actually - the viney roots at the bottom of the plant create a very interesting picture, but I'll gladly do it if it makes the plant feel better.
