Philodendrons are all about foliage, and the vining Neon Philodendron has some of the best in this leafy family of plants. Reaching vines are covered with heart-shaped leaves in a vibrant shade of bright green. The cascading vines create a dense curtain of greenery, making the Philodendron cordatum an excellent plant to perch on a high shelf or display in a plant hanger. The Neon Philodendron is easy to grow and requires minimal care, making it a good plant for beginners and anyone looking to green up their space.
Best Locations For Growing Neon Philodendron
The Neon Philodendron is an adaptable plant that can handle different areas of the home. North- and east-facing windows are good locations for the Neon Philodendron. Use this plant to add lush greenery to a family room or let the vines trail from a bookcase.
Neon Philodendron Sunlight Requirements
Low to bright indirect sunlight is needed for the Neon Philodendron. In nature, this tropical plant grows on the forest floor in dappled light. The bold foliage will brighten up a dimly lit area all on its own. Bright direct light will damage the leaves.
Neon Philodendron Care
Dust and debris can collect on the leaves with time. Rinse the plant off in a sink or shower using room-temperature water. Cleaning the foliage helps the plant look amazing and allows it to conduct photosynthesis more efficiently.
Watering Neon Philodendron
Water the Neon Philodendron when the top few inches of soil are dry. This plant likes a deep drink when it is time to water. Drench the soil and remove extra water from the cover pot or tray. The adaptable Neon Philodendron does well in average humidity, but this tropical plant can live in increased humidity or areas with low humidity. You may need to adjust how frequently the plant is watered based on the humidity present.
Feeding Neon Philodendron
Encourage plenty of new brightly colored leaves by feeding the Neon Philodendron. Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every couple of weeks when the plant is actively growing. Philodendrons may take a break, and their growth may slow in the winter. Do not fertilize plants that are not actively growing.
