Philodendrons prefer bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.
Watering: Water your Philodendron when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Make sure the pot has drainage holes, and don't let the plant sit in standing water.
Philodendrons like high humidity, so consider placing a humidifier nearby or misting the plant regularly
Feed your Philodendron with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every month during the growing season (spring and summer).
Plant your Philodendron in well-draining soil, such as a mix of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite.
Philodendrons prefer temperatures between 65-85°F (18-29°C). Keep the plant away from drafts and cold windows.
Trim off any yellow or brown leaves, as well as any damaged or dead stems. This will help keep the plant looking healthy and prevent disease.
Philodendrons are easy to propagate through stem cuttings. Simply cut a stem with a few leaves and place it in water or soil.
Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests, such as spider mites and mealybugs. If you spot any pests, treat the plant with an insecticide or use natural pest control methods.
As your Philodendron grows, it may need to be repotted into a larger container. Wait until spring or early summer and choose a pot that is one size larger than the current one.
