Best Locations For Growing Florida Green Philodendron

Florida Green Philodendron Sunlight Requirements
Grow your Florida Green Philodendron in bright indirect sunlight for at least 5 hours a day for best results. This easy-care plant can tolerate brief periods of low light and can adapt to other lighting conditions. Ensure that the plant is not in direct sunlight to avoid burning the leaves.
Florida Green Philodendron Care
Philodendrons grow best in loose, nutrient-rich potting soil. Most premixed soil blends will suffice. Repot your plant in a container one size up when you notice roots coming out of the drainage holes. Be sure to provide a sturdy moss pole or trellis for this vining plant.
Watering Florida Green Philodendron
