He is a strong baby who has the potential to survive in low light conditions but he can grow really well by producing more foliage when given medium to bright sunlight indirectly. Don‚Äôt even try to cook him in full sun all day because they can‚Äôt take excessive sunlight.
He can‚Äôt stay in water day long, there should be a proper drainage system within your pot or hanging basket. Keep it slightly moist but don‚Äôt make him dry completely. Water him every 6-7 days in summers to keep him fresh and young.
He likes it on the warmer side by loving to stay in between 55-degree Fahrenheit to 80 degrees. Try to avoid temperatures below 55-degree Fahrenheit because it can damage him completely.
Although he is a native of the tropics, he can still do well in your home even if it has some dry air. Philodendrons are native to the tropics. To keep him humid, you can use water spray to temporarily make him feel nourished.
You can increase his family with the easier stem cuttings because he is a snap to propagate by pruning a stem right under a node and aerial root. Put his cuttings in a pot mixed with soil, water and fertilizer and you are all good to go. Woohoo!
Feed your baby well with a top-notch all -purpose fertilizer once every month. Try not to over fertilize it. Take a proportionate houseplant fertilizer in a diluted form to feed his hunger. Feeding him well during the growing season helps him to survive.
Do you know it is also called love tree due to its origin from Greek words Philo and Dendron! He can survive falling to the ground, then will develop roots and will start climbing towards the light once again.

We package the plants at our nursery in Southern California to ensure safe shipping. Check out our packing slideshow for an upclose idea of how you should expect the arrival of your plants.
When you receive your plant, it has been growing in it nursery pot for some time. It is recommended that your repot your plant so that you have the opportunity to inspect the roots. This is a great opportunity to use a cache pot to match your home decor theme. We offer a variety of cashe pots for sale.
When repotting it is suggested to repot in the same size as the nursery pot but if your roots are extensive and full you can "pot up" your plant to a size larger which usually means adding an inch to either side of the plant. Be careful while watering them so they don’t hold too much water or their dirt gets too wet.
We you use Noot Rescue Mix, as a recommended soil for indoor houseplants or use a standard potting mix but be more careful about watering instru
The answer to this is when your water is draining out of the pot completely and never really gets your soil moistened. It is then that there are likely more roots more soil. Repotting is usually done once in a year or so.
Make sure to never "pot up" more than an inch on each side and immediately after potting, lightly water your plant.
