Light needs: indirect light to shade
Origin and care
The Philodendron belongs to the Araceae family, and is mainly found in the tropical, humid rain forests of Central and South America. Generally they are climbing species with well-developed aerial roots (epiphytic species). However, there are also varieties that creep over the ground or assume a shrub shape. The name comes from the Greek Philéo which means 'to love' and Dendron means 'tree'.
A lot of light but no direct sunlight. The plant can also have partial shade. In the winter temperature not below 13 degrees.Tip the plant occasionally with a plant spray.
Keep the potting soil moist during the growth period, but avoid too much water. Watering is easy, pay attention to the red mark on the water meter.
Because this pot is provided with a substrate and a water meter, watering is easy! Upon arrival there is little water, fill the pot slowly with water (sometimes wait) and you will see that the meter automatically rises. All you have to do is keep an eye on this meter. If you go on holiday, you can fill the pot almost half full (you can see this at the meter that comes to an end above its maximum) and you can safely leave for 14 days.
In addition, it is also not bad if the plants do not get too much water too quickly.
The substrate absorbs the water, so when the water meter is at the bottom the substrate is still damp, but there is no water at the bottom of the pot.
The plant then has more than enough for 4 summer days.
So leaving a few days dry is certainly not a problem, especially in times when the plant evaporates little is recommended!
