- Philodendron is a genus that offers something for everyone.
- If you’re looking for an easy-to-care-for houseplant, chances are one of its nearly 500 species will suit.
- With a name that comes from the Greek, a combination of “love” (philo) and “tree” (dendron), Philodendron is a good-natured and leafy addition to a home.
- Philodendronsdo best in loose, well-drained soil that is high in organic matter.
- They will grow in 100% sphagnum peat moss.
- Soilless mixtures such as peat-vermiculite or peat-perlite are also satisfactory. Philodendron can be propagated by tip and leaf bud cuttings.
- Philodendrons will produce larger leaves and remain healthier if you fertilize them regularly.
- Use slow-release pellets at the beginning of the growing season, or weekly liquid fertilizer.
- During the winter you only need to fertilize about once per month.
- Feed philodendron houseplants with a balanced liquid foliage houseplant fertilizer that contains macro-nutrients.
- Water the plant with the fertilizer monthly in spring and summer and every six to eight weeks in fall and winter.
- When growing philodendron plants, allow the top inch (2.5cm) of soil to dry out between waterings.
- The length of your index finger to the first knuckle is about an inch (2.5 cm.), so inserting your finger into the soil is a good way to check the moisture level.
- Droopy leaves can mean that the plant is getting too much or not enough water.
- But the leaves recover quickly when you correct the watering schedule
