The Philodendron mexicanum is a sought-after tropical houseplant, recognized for its unique, lobed leaves.

Description

The Philodendron mexicanum is a climbing species known for its elongated, deeply lobed, green leaves. The leaves can reach up to 2 feet long and have a glossy, leathery texture. As the plant matures, the leaves take on their distinctive lobed appearance, which distinguishes this species from many other Philodendrons.

Care Guide

  1. Light: Like many Philodendrons, the mexicanum prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can cause leaf scorching, while too little light can result in leggy growth and fewer leaves.

  2. Water: Water when the top inch or so of the soil feels dry. Be careful not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot. These plants like consistently moist (but not soggy) soil.

  3. Temperature: The Philodendron mexicanum enjoys warmer temperatures, ideally between 65-85°F (18-29°C). It doesn't tolerate cold well, so ensure it's not exposed to drafts or temperatures below 55°F (13°C).

  4. Humidity: High humidity is appreciated by this tropical plant. You can increase humidity with a pebble tray, a humidifier, or by misting the plant regularly.

  5. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix. A good mix might include peat moss or coco coir, perlite, and a bit of orchid bark or coarse sand.

  6. Fertilizer: Fertilize monthly during the growing season (spring to summer) with a balanced houseplant fertilizer diluted to half strength. During the dormant winter months, you can hold off on fertilizing.

  7. Pruning: Pruning can be done to manage the size and shape of the plant. Use clean, sharp shears to avoid causing unnecessary damage to the plant.

  8. Propagation: Propagation is typically done by stem cuttings. Cut just below a node, allow the cutting to dry out for a few hours, then place it in water or a light mix until roots form.

  9. Pests and Diseases: Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests such as spider mites, aphids, and mealybugs. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so ensure the plant isn't left in standing water.

Remember, each plant is unique, and care should be adjusted based on your specific home environment and the plant's individual needs. Regular observation will help you spot any issues early and maintain a healthy plant.

Plastic Nursery Pots: All our plants are supplied in practical plastic nursery pots. If you prefer a more decorative option, we offer a range of stylish pots available for purchase separately.

Non-Consumable: Please note that our plants are intended for ornamental purposes only unless specifically stated as edible. Ensure you check product descriptions carefully if you are looking for edible varieties.

Variable Heights: The height of our plants can vary by approximately +/- 10%. This natural fluctuation ensures you receive a unique and healthy specimen.

Plant Pot Sizes: Pot sizes may vary by approximately +/- 1cm. To ensure a proper fit, we recommend selecting a decorative pot that is 1-2cm larger than the stated plant pot size. For instance, if you purchase a plant in a 17cm pot, a 18 - 19cm decorative pot would be ideal.
