Philodendron 'Tree Hugger' Care Guide

Light

Being a native of rainforests, it doesn’t cope well with direct sunlight as this is blocked by canopies. Make sure your plant is placed somewhere with medium to bright light

Water

Make sure the top few inches of the soil is dry between waterings. Water every week during summer and less in winter

Temperature

Keep in a well-heated room during the winter as the plant does not like the cold weather

Feeding

A dash of fertiliser in the water during the growing season

Grooming

Its roots were made for gripping so it doesn’t do well in dense soil. The perfect mixture would include a moisture-retaining ingredient like sphagnum moss or coco coir with perlite to allow water-flow

Care

Mist regularly and, it can help increase the humidity of a room by 15%
