🔆 Light
Philodendrons prefer bright, indirect light. They will, however, survive in lower light and the leaves will turn a darker green. Direct sun or too much light will burn or fade the leaves.


💧 Water
Water when the top 50%-75% of the soil is dry, and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.


☁️ Humidity
The Philodendron has thinner leaves than many of its relatives and requires more humidity to flourish. Mist your plant regularly especially during the drier winter months.


🌡️ Temperature
Philodendrons enjoy warm temperatures above (13°C). Keep them away from drafts and open doors, especially during the winter.


🧴️ Food
Feed once a month during spring and summer with a liquid fertilizer for indoor plants.


🐾 Toxicity
Toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will result in swelling of the lips and tongue, and stomach irritation with possible vomiting.


 Additional Tips
Prune your Philodendron with sharp scissors to control its size and shape. You can remove entire leaves be cutting them off at the base of the leaf stem. Be sure to wear gloves when pruning and wash your hands and tools when finished - you don’t want to get the sap in your eyes or mouth. Always clean dead or decaying leaves from the soil and dust it once a month to keep your plant healthy.

⛔ HIGH RISK
● Do Not Overwater! This will cause leaf drop and root rot that eventually could kill the plant. The worst thing you can do regarding watering is "give it too much".
● Make sure your plant is not placed near Heat or AC source. It is best to keep consistent room temperature throughout the seasons and not turn off Heat or AC when away or traveling. The best temperature ratio for almost any plant is (15°C-24°C).
