More about your Philodendron plant

Philodendrons have been a staple of indoor garden design for decades. These houseplants are adaptive to new conditions so are great indoor plants for beginners. Thriving well indoors, these plants can benefit from being placed outside in a shaded space every now and then to give them a boost, and unlike most houseplants this doesn’t stress a philodendron.

How much light does a Philodendron need?

Philodendron’s will look after themselves if their basic needs are met. You should put your plant in a bright space with indirect light. Older leaves will turn yellow as they age, but if you find a lot of yellowing leaves then the plant is receiving too much light. A Philodendron that is not receiving enough light will become leggy and the leaves will grow sparsely.

How often should I water a Philodendron?

You should only water when the top inch of soil is dry. Philodendrons only require light watering and the leaves will begin to droop if you are over or under watering.
