Caring for George

Light

Philodendrons prefer medium to bright light indoors, but do not enjoy afternoon sun. Too much direct sun will lead to yellow sun spots or burnt faded leaves. They can grow outdoors in shade, provided they are taken inside during cold winters. 

Water & humidity

Keep the soil slightly moist in summer, watering when the top 1 - 2 cm of soil is dry. Water deeply, letting the water drain out the bottom of the grow pot. Philodendrons don't like to have wet feet. They're not too phased about humidity, but ideally like humidity levels to be around 50% upwards. Keep temperatures above 15°C

Feeding

Feed regularly in summer as Philodendrons like soil rich in nutrients and organic matter. You can also add a small amount of manure. Do not feed in winter.

Re-potting

Re-pot every 2 years if necessary to one pot size up. These plants like being root bound, and they will start climbing as they grow, producing aerial roots. Normal potting soil rich in organic matter will do. Avoid sandy or clay soils.

Atrium Top Tip

Too much water will cause the leaves to turn completely yellow and fall out, and black splotches will develop on the leaves. Too little water will cause the leaves and stems to start drooping. 

Plant fact

Philodendron is a member of the Araceae (Arum) family and originates from the Caribbean, Colombia and Venezuela.
