Description

The Philodendron Xanadu is an exotic looking foliage plant that is easy to grow. Since it is a compact plant, it requires more light than other philodendron plants to maintain its compactness. It grows best in medium, indirect light.

Ed's Care Guide

  • Light: Prefers medium, indirect light. Can handle indirect light, but too much bright light will cause the leaves to become pale and bleached looking. Too little light will cause the stems to become elongated as the plant stretches towards the light. Direct sun burns the leaves.
  • Water: Water thoroughly until the water drains out the drip holes in the bottom of the pot, and then allow the top of the soil to dry out before watering again.
  • Humidity: High
  • Temperature: 75-80F 
  • Pruning: Prune as needed to remove brown or dead leaves and control growth.
  • Feeding: Fertilize monthly in the spring and fall, every other week in the summer, and never in the winter. Use a balanced plant food diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength
  • Propagation: Division 
  • Growth: Plant is often wider than it is tall
  • Pests: Look out for aphids and mealy bugs. If the air is very dry, can also attract spider mites. 
  • Toxicity: Toxic to humans and pets
