Give this plant a warm, humid, medium-bright environment, and it will reward you with lots of lush, healthy new growth.
Best Locations For Growing Narrow Escape Philodendron
This plant will look great in a living area next to your brightest window. Place this interesting plant near an east- or west-facing window for fast healthy growth. For best results, also pick a spot in the house that’s more humid if you have one available.
Narrow Escape Philodendron Sunlight Requirements
Provide at least 6 hours of indirect light for your Narrow Escape Philodendron. These plants thrive in medium to bright indirect light. Growing increasingly smaller leaves will indicate that your Philodendron needs more light.
Narrow Escape Philodendron Care
The lower leaves will naturally turn yellow with age and should be trimmed off to encourage new growth. If you want to see larger, more detailed leaves, be sure to give this Philodendron a moss pole or trellis so it can climb upwards.
Watering Narrow Escape Philodendron
Narrow Escape Philodendron isn’t too picky about watering. Just wait until the soil is completely dry, then water thoroughly. When the leaves look droopy, it’s a good indication that you should water this plant. As with other Philodendrons, the Narrow Escape Philodendron will benefit from higher humidity levels.
Feeding Narrow Escape Philodendron
For best results, fertilize your plant using a balanced liquid fertilizer every two weeks. When growth slows down in the winter months, decrease fertilizing to once a month, and dilute the liquid fertilizer to a quarter of the strength recommended by the manufacturer.
