All of our plants are grown outdoors in nature and are exposed to the natural elements. Sometimes this means a leaf could have been chewed here and there or have a blemish or two – but we do our best to send the best plants we can on every order.

Philodendrons are relatively easy to care for, making them popular houseplants. Here are some general guidelines for keeping them healthy:

  1. Light: Philodendrons prefer bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can burn their leaves. If your plant is not getting enough light, it may become leggy and grow slower.

  2. Watering: Water your philodendron when the top inch of soil feels dry. They prefer slightly moist soil but can tolerate occasional dryness. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's essential to allow the soil to dry out between waterings.

  3. Humidity: Philodendrons appreciate humidity, but they can also tolerate normal household humidity levels. If your home is particularly dry, consider misting the leaves occasionally or placing a humidity tray nearby.

  4. Temperature: They thrive in temperatures between 18°C to 27°C. Avoid exposing them to cold drafts or sudden temperature changes.

  5. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix that retains some moisture but doesn't become waterlogged. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and pine bark works well.

  6. Fertilizing: Feed your philodendron with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or stop fertilizing during the fall and winter when growth slows down.

  7. Pruning: Regularly remove any yellowing or dead leaves to encourage new growth. You can also trim leggy stems to promote bushier growth.

  8. Support: Some philodendron varieties, like climbing types, benefit from a support structure like a moss pole or trellis to help them climb and remain upright.

  9. Repotting: Repot your philodendron when it outgrows its current pot, usually every 1-2 years. Choose a pot that is one size larger and refresh the soil.

  10. Pests and Diseases: Keep an eye out for common pests like spider mites, aphids, and mealybugs. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Also, watch for signs of fungal diseases and treat them accordingly.

By following these care tips, you can enjoy a thriving and lush philodendron in your home.
