GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Perfect for this holiday season is this rare and strikingly adorable Philodendron Rudolph that resembles a reindeer's face in its lush, shiny green leaves.
  • With its fresh forest look, Rudolph definitely makes a welcome addition to your Philodendron collection.
  • Philodendrons generally grow best in loose, well-draining soil that is high in organic matter.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • It flourishes in a well-drained moist soil thoroughly mixed with organic content such as peat moss, compost, etc.
  • You might want to ask what well-drained soil is.
  • Well-drained soil is soil that allows the flow of water in or out at a moderate rate.
  • When the plant’s soil is saturated with excess water, it reduces the oxygen intake of the plant from the soil, which may result in its death.
  • For your indoor planting, it is not recommended to use soil from the garden, if you look forward to a good result.
  • Soil from the garden might contain disease organisms, weeds seeds and may not be well-drained soil.
  • That said, you could use high-quality potting soil that is well-draining.
  • Good drainage is key for the well-being of Philodendrons. 
  • However, you should not just use a regular potting mix.
  • You should add some more ingredients, eg.30%-50% potting mix, and then for the rest of the soil, add perlite and orchid bark.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • 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.
  • Slow growth and small leaf size is the plant’s way of telling you that it isn’t getting enough fertilizer.
  • Pale new leaves usually indicate that the plant isn’t getting enough calcium and magnesium, which are essential micro-nutrients for philodendrons.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • It requires mild sunlight to thrive.
  • Filtered sunlight is most desirable.
  • Direct exposure to sunlight will lead to the burning of leaves.
  • The beauty of a Philodendron the intensity of the color variation of its leaves.
  • When planted in a shady environment for 2 to 3 months, it loses its color variation and hence loses its beauty.
  • However, the white portion of the leaves is susceptible to sunlight.
  • When exposed to intense direct sunlight, it burns off quickly.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • It is a water-loving plant.
  • Watering should be done with a moderate amount of water.
  • You must ensure the plant’s soil is moist at all times.
  • Watering with excessive water must be avoided to prevent killing the plant.
  • When the plant’s soil is excessively watered or saturated with water, it reduces the rate of oxygen intake by the plate from the soil.
  • It could lead to the rotting of the plant root, which is the most critical and crucial part of a plant.
  • When the roots are rotten, the plant will be nutrient deficient and, in the long run, will lead to the death of the plant when not properly cared for.
  • This can be done by feeling the soil texture with your fingers.
  • If the soil contains some moisture, it will stick on the fingers, but when it doesn’t, it will fall off.
  • After this has been done and it was confirmed that water moisture is present, you can postpone the watering of the plant.
  • Otherwise, you water it at the very moment.
