Philodendron Micans in a Hanging Basket 4.5" or 6"
Philodendrons are large plants with thick, shiny, smooth-edged leaves.
Its new foliage is brown to coppery red, maturing to dark green with a reddish blush, but the fleshy leaf stems remain bright red.
It is fast growing and can reach about 3x3 feet in size.
Location: Full sun to shade outdoors. Houseplants require bright, natural light.
Soil: In their ancestral habitat, philodendrons grow in dense forests in very humus-rich, cool, moist soil. Use lots of compost and leaf mould when you plant them in the garden, and good quality potting soil for container plants.
Water: Water very regularly – philodendrons like moist but not constantly drenched soil. Potted plants must not stand in saucers of water because they will rot.
Fertilizing: Feed in spring, midsummer and autumn with fertilizer granules specially formulated for foliage plants and lawns. Renew the mulch around the plants at these times too. Potted plants can be fed every four to six weeks using a liquid fertilizer for houseplants.
Maintenance: Clean the leaves of houseplants with a soft, damp cloth. Dusty leaves are more prone to pests such as mealy bugs and red spider mites.
These beautiful plants have a lush, tropical appearance. It is an easy grower, perfect for patios and as houseplants.
