Level of Care
Easy! Just make sure the plant isn't in direct sunlight and don't overwater.
The NASA Clean Air Study has ranked Philodendrons as one of the most efficient groups of houseplants that remove formaldehyde and other toxins from the air we breathe.
Feed with a mild liquid, indoor plant fertilizer about once a month during the growing season. Do not fertilize in winter.
Prefers warm conditions 65-80°F. Keep away from drafty windows and air conditioners.
A peaty All-Purpose potting soil with good drainage works best.
Pruning & Propagation
Prune damaged or yellow leaves by cutting to the stem base. To propagate, place stem cuttings with leaves in water until ready to repot.
Sorry! Plant contains very sharp calcium oxalate crystals that, when eaten, cause mouth and digestion irritation and possibly more serious problems.
