Plant Care Guide:

  1. Light Requirements: Place your Split Leaf Philodendron in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves. Provide approximately 150-300 foot candles of light for optimal growth.

  2. Watering: Allow the top inch or two of the soil to dry out between waterings. Water thoroughly but ensure that the pot has proper drainage to prevent waterlogging. Reduce watering during the dormant winter months.

  3. Temperature and Humidity: Maintain a temperature range between 65-80°F (18-27°C). This philodendron appreciates higher humidity levels, so misting the leaves or using a humidity tray can be beneficial.

  4. Soil and Fertilization: Use a well-draining potting mix with organic matter. Fertilize during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.

  5. Pruning and Maintenance: Prune away any damaged or yellowing leaves to encourage healthy growth. You can also remove any old or leggy stems to maintain a compact appearance.

  6. Toxicity: Keep in mind that Split Leaf Philodendron is toxic if ingested, so place it out of reach of children and pets.

  7. Pests: While relatively resistant to pests, occasional spider mites or mealybugs may appear. If needed, use our Damn Bug! Organic Pesticide as a safe and effective solution, available here.
