Best Locations For Growing Lickety Split Philodendron
The main requirements when choosing a spot for the Lickety Split Philodendron are sunlight and space.

Lickety Split Philodendron Care
This plant may become leggy with age. Overgrowth can be trimmed to encourage new leaves and a bushy look. The best time to prune a plant is before a regular fertilizer dose. Increase the light after pruning Lickety Split to help support new growth.
Watering Lickety Split Philodendron
Feel the soil to gauge the level of dampness, and water when the top few inches of soil are dry. Overwatering is a bigger problem than underwatering, so wait another day or two if you are unsure when to water. When watering, thoroughly wet the soil until excess water drains through the holes in the pot. The Lickety Split Philodendron can live in average humidity, but high humidity is best. Mist the leaves or use a pebble tray to keep the greenery full and lush.
Feeding Lickety Split Philodendron
The Lickety Split Philodendron responds well to regular feedings during the growing season. Use a balanced, water-soluble plant food once per month. The Lickety Split Philodendron is a large, fast-growing plant, and fertilizing it will support new growth and help the plant reach its potential.
