Philodendron hederaceum prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light levels. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.

Water your plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so be sure not to let the plant sit in standing water.



Use a well-draining soil mix that is rich in organic matter. A mix of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite works well.


Philodendron hederaceum prefers higher humidity levels, but can tolerate lower humidity as well. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves or placing a humidifier nearby.


Feed your plant once a month during the growing season with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.


To keep your plant looking neat and tidy, prune any yellow or brown leaves or stems. You can also pinch back the tips of the plant to encourage branching.


Philodendron hederaceum likes to be slightly root-bound, so only repot when the roots have filled the pot. Use a pot that is one size larger and add fresh soil.


Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests such as mealybugs and spider mites. You can use insecticidal soap or neem oil to treat infestation.


Philodendron hederaceum prefers temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C). Avoid placing the plant near cold drafts or heating vents.


Philodendron hederaceum is easy to propagate through stem cuttings. Simply take a cutting with at least one node and place it in water or soil until roots develop.
