- Philodendron is a large genus of flowering plants in the family Araceae.
- As of September 2015, the World Checklist of Selected Plant Families accepted 489 species; other sources accept different numbers.
- Philodendron Panduriforme ranges throughout the northern and western areas of the Amazon basin.
- Philodendron Panduriforme occurs in Peru, Ecuador, Brazil, Colombia, and portions of Venezuela, but is limited in Venezuela to the region of Cerro Yapacana.
- You need well-draining soil for a healthy panduriforme.
- Well-draining soil is great at ensuring you don’t over-water or under-water your plant.
- This type of soil has plenty of aeration.
- This means any excess water drains through to the bottom, instead of standing in the soil.
- You’ll still want a plant pot with drainage holes so the water doesn’t sit at the roots either
- A typical well-draining soil recipe includes Decomposed bark, Perlite, and Sphagnum peat moss.
- The soil pH should be acidic. It should range from 5.1 to 6.0 pH.
- Philodendron plants are heavy feeders.
- You need a fertilizer with a high amount of nitrogen.
- This ensures that the plant is lush and the leaves are large.
- Use an all-purpose fertilizer at half-strength.
- Fertilize your Philodendron Panduriforme plant weekly during the growing season or warmer months.
- During the colder months, only fertilize your plant about once a month.
- The Philodendron Panduriforme plant can take low light.
- But low light isn’t going to create a lush and thriving plant.
- It’s only going to create a plant that’s surviving.
- These Philodendron plants need bright but indirect sunlight to thrive.
- Direct sunlight scorches and burns the leaves.
- To get indirect sunlight for your plant, place it in either an east or north-facing window.
- This way your Philodendron Panduriforme is getting plenty of sunlight during the day.
- Without sun rays blaring right on your leaves.
- A Philodendron Panduriforme needs moist soil at all times during the warmer months.
- You do have to be careful of over-watering the plant.
- Otherwise, it can stunt the growth.
- Or worse, it can develop root rot.
- Root rot happens when oxygen can’t reach the roots.
- So, they start to rot away.
- Drenched soil doesn’t allow oxygen to get through the soil.
- To test if your plant needs water, stick your finger into the soil about knuckle deep.
- If it’s dry throughout, water it.
- If it’s still moist, wait and check again in a day.
