Philodendron

Philodendrons have served as a mainstay in home gardens for many generations. Caring for them is easy, so they will surely make a great addition to your jungle.

Description

Sun

Your philodendron should receive bright, indirect sunlight. Direct sunlight will cause the leaves to scorch. If you own the split-leaf variety, the leaves need enough bright sunlight to begin splitting and forming the “holes” in the leaves.

Watering

When watering, allow the top inch of soil to dry between watering. Water thoroughly until it drains from the bottom. To encourage speedy growth, you can introduce fertilizer monthly in the warm months.

Propagation

The philodendrons can be clipped at the nodes and propagated to root in soil or water. For more information, reach out to a plants consultant at Colasanti’s.
