Prefers soil to partially dry out so check about once a week. Thrives in a moist environment with high humidity. Water less in winter when plant is dormant.
Level of Care
Easy! Just avoid 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 leaf node. To propagate, place stems of vine cuttings in water and roots should form within a week or so. Replant in soil.
Sorry! Plant contains very sharp calcium oxalate crystals that, when eaten, cause mouth and digestion irritation and possibly more serious problems.
