Philodendron 'Moonlight' (Philodendron cannifolium) - 4 inch pot
Philodendron 'Moonlight' is a beautiful plant that has bright yellow new growth that fades to green with age. It is a very popular and easy to care for houseplant that can live in your home for years to come.
This plant ships in a 4" wide grower's pot. Height of plant is approximately 7"-10" tall from the bottom of the pot to the top of the plant. Plant size and appearance may vary at times based on the batch they were grown in, but beautiful nonetheless.
Philodendron Growing Instructions
Philodendron grows best in medium to bright indirect light. Not sure what that means? In a medium light spot, the plant will cast a soft or light shadow throughout the day. In bright light, the plant will have a strong shadow. Don't have a spot with natural light? No worries! Philodendron thrives under both fluorescent or LED lights, as well as the sun.
Like many other aroids (plants in the philodendron family), these are sensitive to overwatering. Be sure to let the top several inches of the potting mix dry before you water it again. This houseplant holds up reasonably well to drought, but looks and grows best if the potting mix isn't allowed to dry out.
A nice trick that we have found is submerging the plant, give it a great soak and than let it dry out for 7-10 days again.
Philodendron likes average to above-average relative humidity levels. If your environment has particularly dry air, boost humidity by grouping your philodendron with other houseplants. Or place a small humidifier nearby. Or alternatively, grow it over a large pebble tray.
Fertilize your philodendron in spring and summer, if you wish. Use a fertilizer formulated for use on houseplants. Follow the directions on the product packaging and avoid using more than the instructions recommend. Too much fertilizer can cause root damage.
Pruning Philodendron is not necessary except to remove any old or damaged leaves.
