Philodendron care

Philodendron is a tropical plant that is usually grown in full sun, but can tolerate and adapt to deep shade.
It grows best in rich, moisture-retentive soil that can be slightly alkaline. However, it cannot tolerate high salt concentration in soil.
It is capable of supporting itself at massive heights by producing tree-like bases. However, it will exhibit epiphytic characteristics if given the opportunity to attach itself to a nearby supporting tree and climb upon it.
The trunk of this plant can send down many strong aerial roots that not only give support to the overall plant mass, but also serve to absorb water and nutrients from the soil.

This plant is greatly known for its ease in covering a land mass, and typically spread out its tree-like trunk from anywhere between eight to ten feet.
Alternatively, if grown in cooler climates with at least some freezing winter weather, its entire aboveground structures will die back completely at a hard frost and then sprout back from the roots the following spring.

Sunlight Philodendron grows well in the bright indirect light. In lower light, the leaves of a Philodendron turn a darker green.
Direct sun or too much direct light burns or fades the leaves of a Philodendron Selloum.
Watering Water regularly but give the plant time to dry out between succesive watering.
Soil A Philodendron Selloum grows best in a rich, slightly alkaline soil that retains moisture.
The leaf tips of a Philodendron Selloum burn when there is too much salt in the soil usually due to over-feeding.
Temperature Philodendron Selloums like to be warm so keep the temperature above 55 degrees F during the winter.
Fertilizer Feed a Philodendron Selloum with a water soluble fertilizer monthly during the spring, summer, and fall.
Dilute the plant food to 1/2 the recommended strength to avoid excess salts building up in the soil of a Philodendron Selloum and burning the leaves.
