Philodendron Crocodile Tail
The Philodendron can easily stay with you for more than a decade with proper care, keep the leaves dry and the soil moist, not soggy. This tropical darling loves a warm humid environment and is an excellent air purifier for indoor spaces. Great addition to both living rooms and bedrooms, get it home and watch it transform into a more spruced up version of itself.
Fertilizer/ feed for the plant:A well balanced fertilizer every fifteen days in its main growing season – summer months, and a rich compost mix potting medium while potting or repotting and its set for a long haul.
Repotting : An easy to maintain plant that you will have to repot once the roots start growing out of the current pot. Choose a pot slightly larger than the older pot when repotting.
Propogation : The easiest family of plants to propagate, the philodendrons can be easily propagated by stem cuttings both in soil and in water.
1. Why are the tips of my Philo plant leaves turning brown? What can I do?
Leaf tips will brown if water at any point is inconsistent, or too much. Set a watering schedule and stick to it and ensure that the soil is moist at all times but not soggy.
2. What are the leafless brown growths coming off of my Philodendron?
These are called aerial roots and are totally normal. In nature, these are what help give support to the plant and allow it to climb and reach more light. The roots will not damage walls or surfaces, and you can always prune them if they get unruly.
3. My Philodendron has gotten way too big. What can I do?
Prune it back! These guys are very hardy and can handle a good trim. You can also train your Hope to grow whichever way your heart desires by using stakes and ties.
