Plant Care Tips: Philodendron 'Green Princess'
- Pop your Green Princess preferably in an area with medium indirect sunlight. Shadier spots are also OK.
- They like warm and humid environments so, keep them away from draughts and mist them often. Steamy kitchens and bathrooms are the perfect rooms!
- Keep the soil moist but not soggy. Let the top layer dry out between waterings and make sure the pot has good drainage.
- During the warmer months, feed it with a liquid fertiliser.
- When you notice the roots outgrowing the pot, it’s time to repot the plant. Use a rich peat-based soil that is not too heavy
