Philodendron erubescens prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.
Water your Philodendron erubescens when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Be careful not to overwater, as this can cause root rot.
Philodendron erubescens likes high humidity levels, so consider using a humidifier or placing a tray of water near the plant.
Philodendron erubescens prefers temperatures between 65-85°F (18-29°C). Avoid exposing it to temperatures below 50°F (10°C).
Use a well-draining potting mix that contains peat moss, perlite, and/or vermiculite.
Fertilize your Philodendron erubescens every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced fertilizer.
Trim off any yellow or brown leaves, as well as any leggy stems. This will promote bushier growth and keep the plant looking neat.
Repot your Philodendron erubescens every 1-2 years or when it becomes root-bound.
Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests such as spider mites and mealybugs. If you notice any, treat the plant with an insecticidal soap or neem oil.
Philodendron erubescens can be propagated by stem cuttings. Take a cutting with a few leaves and nodes, dip it in rooting hormone, and plant it in moist potting mix. Keep the soil moist and the cutting in bright, indirect light until it roots.
