Prince of Orange Philodendron prefers a humid environment but is able to live in arid rooms with the help of moisture from a humidity tray or mister.
Feeding Prince Of Orange Philodendron
Generally, you will only need to feed your Philodendron with fertilizer diluted to half the strength recommended on the label about every 2-3 weeks.
