How to Care for Philodendron Burle Marx Plants
Before you buy a Philodendron Burle Marx plant, make sure to read about the recommended care instructions to keep this plant healthy and thriving.
What is the best light for Philodendron Burle Marx Plants?
Philodendron Burle Marx thrive in both indoor light, and in partial to indirect sunlight. They are known to tolerate lower light situations as well, making them a very easy plant to care for.
How often should I water my Philodendron Burle Marx?
Philodendron Burle Marx plants like well-draining soil. When the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch, water thoroughly and let water drain out fully. We recommend that you press your index finger into the soil down to the first joint to feel for soil moisture. If unsure, it is better to wait: you can let the soil dry out a little bit between waterings since this is a relatively resilient tropical.
How do I fertilize Philodendron Burle Marx Plants?
Any all purpose, slow-release fertilizer will work for Philodendron Burle Marx Plants. Indoor houseplant fertilizers fall into two groups: water soluble, liquid quick release, and granular, slow release fertilizers. Jack's Classic Indoor plant food works well as a powder, quick release fertilizer that is mixed with water to quickly provide nutrients to a plant that has been in a container for an extended time.
Wen should I re-pot my Philodendron Burle Marx Plants?
We typically do not ship plants that need to be repotted, since they were probably just recently potted into their current nursery pot. If you are going to re-pot your Burle Marx philodendron from its growers' pot, to avoid any undue shock, make sure to do so a little while after it has arrived and stay close to the size of the grower's pot it arrived in. That way it has time to acclimate to its new environment after shipping. Re-pot with sandy loose soil, such as a cactus or an orchid soil mix. We recommend waiting until it is slightly difficult to press your finger into the soil because of the root system before moving up to a larger pot size.
