Give your space a tropical vibe with the Lickety Split Philodendron. A native of South America, the Lickety Split Philodendron, also known as Lacy Tree, Horsehead, or Philodendron bipinnatifidum, has deeply-lobed leaves with a slight ruffle. The unique leaf shape is eye-catching and gives this plant a textural element. The light-green midrib and veining stand out against the dark green of the foliage. The Lickety Split Philodendron is easy to maintain once you understand what this stunner needs.

Best Locations For Growing Lickety Split Philodendron

The main requirements when choosing a spot for the Lickety Split Philodendron are sunlight and space. This plant needs plenty of sunlight, and while houseplants do not grow as large as plants outside, it will still get rather big. An open area near east- or south-facing windows will be a wonderful spot for this tropical beauty.

Lickety Split Philodendron Sunlight Requirements

The Lickety Split Philodendron is adaptable when it comes to sunlight and can live in medium to bright indirect light. The plant may fail to thrive in low light, and the leaves may turn yellow. Avoid direct sunlight, which can burn the lovely leaves. 

Lickety Split Philodendron Care

This plant may become leggy with age. Overgrowth can be trimmed to encourage new leaves and a bushy look. The best time to prune a plant is before a regular fertilizer dose. Increase the light after pruning Lickety Split to help support new growth.

Watering Lickety Split Philodendron

Feel the soil to gauge the level of dampness, and water when the top few inches of soil are dry. Overwatering is a bigger problem than underwatering, so wait another day or two if you are unsure when to water. When watering, thoroughly wet the soil until excess water drains through the holes in the pot. The Lickety Split Philodendron can live in average humidity, but high humidity is best. Mist the leaves or use a pebble tray to keep the greenery full and lush.

Feeding Lickety Split Philodendron

The Lickety Split Philodendron responds well to regular feedings during the growing season. Use a balanced, water-soluble plant food once per month. The Lickety Split Philodendron is a large, fast-growing plant, and fertilizing it will support new growth and help the plant reach its potential.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
