Philodendron Growing Instructions:
Light: When it comes to Philodendrons, the basic rule is the more light the better. Philodendrons tolerate low light levels, but they do grow faster and in medium to bright spots. Direct sun should be avoided as this tends to burn the leaves which makes the plant unsightly.
Water: Philodendrons do best with less water rather than more. When Philodendrons stay too wet, the roots suffocate due to lack of air. Stick your finger into the top inch or so of the potting mix if it feels dry to the touch then it is time to water. using this method you can be sure that the soil is allowed to dry in-between waterings.
Humidity: Philodendrons are native to tropical regions where high relative humidity levels are common. Philodendrons can tolerate average to low humidity but are happiest in higher humidity areas. If the air in your home is dry, an occasional spritz with a spray bottle is all that's needed to keep the plant happy.
Soil: Philodendrons do 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.
We do recommend Espoma organic potting mix for Philodendrons but we have begun experimenting with mixing 50% Espoma Organic Potting mix with 50% Espoma Organic Cactus Mix. This is showing very good results for us so far. We believe this is due to the Cactus soil having a larger particle size which allows for better drainage as well as allowing more air to be held in the soil.
Fertilizer: Fertilize philodendrons regularly during the growing season. There are two basic ways to feed Philodendrons: with a time-release granular product such as Osmocote Plus Indoor Plant Food or with a water-soluble fertilizer such as Jacks Classic Houseplant Special.
Time-release fertilizers are the easiest and safest to use. They are great for beginners. Simply sprinkle the recommended amount on the soil surface and every time you water you will be feeding the plant.
Water-soluble fertilizers are a little harder to use. You will need to add the required amount to your water each time you water during the growing season. Many experienced plant parents prefer them because they deliver nutrients in greater quantities
