GENERAL INFORMATION

  • 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.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • 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.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • 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.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • 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.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • 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.
