Caring for Phila

Light

Philodendron 'Hope' likes medium to bright indirect light indoors, and shade to semi-shade outdoors. It will also tolerate low-light situations. 

Water & humidity

Water every week to 10 days, letting the water drain out the bottom of the pot. Allow the top 50% of soil to dry out between watering. Philodendron 'Hope' isn't phased about humidity, and can survive in poor soil and dry conditions. 

Feeding

Feed once every 1-2 months in summer, if necessary. Never feed in winter.

Re-potting

Re-pot every 1-2 years if necessary to one pot size up. Philodendrons have large root systems, but don't despair if the roots are pushing up out of the pot, these plants prefer being root bound.

Atrium Top Tip

If the leaves turn yellow it's a sign of overwatering. If the leaves turn brown and fall off it's a sign of too little water.

Quirky plant fact

The word 'Philodendron' comes from the Greek words 'Philo' and 'Dendron', meaning 'Love Tree'. Philodendrons are capable of living part of their life as air plants, and are often found growing in the jungle canopy with aerial roots clinging to the trees.
