How to care for your philodendron: Temperature: Average to warm, about 60 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit (16 to 27 degrees Celsius). Split-leaf philodendron thrives at temperatures above 80 degrees and will very likely not grow at temperatures lower than 65 degrees; Lacy Tree is hardier and more tolerant of lower temperatures. Light: Moderate to bright light. No direct sun, which can cause brown scorch marks on the leaves. Choose an area with bright indirect or filtered sunlight, such as a south-facing window or a room with light-colored walls that reflect light. Keep plants 2 to 5 feet away from windows to avoid direct light, which causes leaf burn, as well as cooler temperatures or drafts in the winter. Yellowing of the lower leaves may be a sign that your plant needs more light. Water: Moderate. Water once every seven to 10 days; keep the soil moist from spring through fall and allow its surface to dry out between waterings in winter. Overwatering can cause yellow leaves. Soil: Use a peat moss–based potting mix or premium potting soil with one-fourth added perlite for good drainage. Feeding: Feed monthly spring through fall with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted by half; cut t...
Lacy Tree philodendron (Philodendron bipinnatifidum, or Philodendron selloum) is not a climber; it grows as a large semiwoody shrub with enormous glossy leaves and a single erect unbranched stem that tends to fall over and sprawl when the plant gets large. You'll want to give a Lacy Tree plenty of room: It can eventually sprawl to become twice as wide as it is tall.
Split-leaf philodendron (Monstera deliciosa) is a climber, as are most philodendron varieties. It's also known as Swiss Cheese plant, due to holes on its large, glossy green leaves alongside deeply curved splits. This impressive plant is well suited to a large hall or a spacious room, in a spot with plenty of good light. Split-leaf can grow as tall as 10 feet, so it generally needs to be staked or given a pole on which to cli
Youth on Age (Tolmiea menziesii) Humidity lover. Providing slightly higher humidity can be a big help to plants that like the atmosphere a bit damper. Simply misting may not provide enough of a boost in ambient humidity levels, as its effects will quickly fade, but you can try growing them on pebble trays — low trays filled with pebbles and water that sit beneath the pot — placing them in a kitchen or bath, or grouping them near a humidifier. Fast-growing youth on age, also called piggyback plant, is a popular houseplant that does best in a cool location out of direct sun. It gets its name from the plantlets that form on top of the existing leaves. Grow it where you can admire the leaves as they hang over the edges of the pot or down the side of a shelf. Keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy, and fertilize lightly (about a quarter of the recommended amount) weekly from spring through fall. Cut back in winter. Keep the plant out of direct sunlight, intense heat and dry air. Pinch back to keep it bushy.
