Philodendrons are fast-growing, easy plants. They range in growth pattern from graceful and vining to bold and bushy. Philodendrons are generally forgiving and will tolerate all kinds of neglect including low light, poor soil, and inconsistent watering.
Your Philodendron prefers indirect bright light, but the Philodendrons can adapt to lower light. These plants can only tolerate some direct sun in the morning; extended periods of direct light can burn the foliage.
Water your Philodendron when the soil volume is 50-75% dry. Water thoroughly until water comes out of the drainage holes, and be sure to empty the saucer of any excess water. These plants are sensitive to overwatering—if the soil remains constantly wet, the roots will rot.
Average household humidity is fine for your Philodendron, but higher humidity encourages larger leaves. Your plants will benefit from a pebble tray or adding a humidifier.
Your Philodendron will grow well in temperatures between 65-80°F. Keep away from drafts, especially during the winter months.
Feed your Philodendron monthly in the spring and summer with a general-purpose fertilizer. No fertilizer is needed in the fall and winter months when the plants are dormant. Always fertilize on moist soil, never dry, as it can burn the roots.
Philodendrons are toxic to humans and pets if ingested.
