Welcome!

Philodendrums are climbing plants and your's found the first available tree trunk. Too bad it was your wall. Smiling

Traditionally, Philodendrums were given fern stakes to glue themselves to. Look at orchid supply houses.

Yes, they do that. This looks more like Pothos (Epipremnum aureum) than any Philodendron. The stem is ribbed, the petiole is grooved, and the roots are so short.
