Philodendron spp. and hybrids
Philodendron is a genus of herbaceous evergreen tropical plants which belongs to the aroid family, Araceae. Interestingly, the brighter the light the plants are exposed to, the more intense the variegation, but with smaller individual leaves. Philodendrons are very forgiving, and will resiliently grow back, if the plants have been through a rough patch.
Medium light. Tolerates low light. Not suited for intense, direct sun.
Water weekly to semi-weekly. Allow potting mix to completely dry out before watering. The smaller the pot, the faster the soil dries out. Water more frequently during warmer months and fertilize during growth. Do not overwater or keep the soil wet for too long, as this will encourage root rot.
Philodendrons will let you know as soon as they're not feeling the love by wilting, this is a great indicator that you need to water.
