What should you watch out for ?: When it comes to philodendrons, the most important thing is to use the right substrate. It is also important not to overflow the plant as it is quite susceptible to fungal diseases. Maintaining increased air humidity will help to avoid pests.
Position: Bright with diffused light. Due to its white variegation, it may require a sunnier position than other philodendrons.
Care: Philodendrons are grown in a special substrate consisting of a mixture of coconut fiber, bark, coconut chips and perlite, i.e. in the so-called bigos. Our philodendron substrate or one dedicated to monsters will be perfect. Water when the substrate is quite dry throughout the entire depth, but do not let it dry completely. Philodendrons grow best supported by a coconut stake, to which they attach with their strong aerial roots. This is due to the fact that in nature they grow by climbing tree trunks towards the sun. Due to its tropical origin - increased humidity (50-70%) is also welcome.
