Brasil Philodendron, Philodendron hederaceum
The Brasil Philodendron (Philodendron hederaceum 'Brasil') is a true marvel of nature with its vibrant variegated, heart-shaped leaves. This Philodendron is renowned for its low-maintenance nature, making it an ideal choice for busy individuals or those new to plant care.
Light: Place your Brasil Philodendron in a location with bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.
Watering: Water your Philodendron when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's better to err on the side of slightly underwatering.
Humidity: Native to tropical regions, the Brasil Philodendron thrives in moderate to high humidity levels. Mist the leaves regularly or place a humidifier nearby.
Temperature: Maintain a consistent room temperature between 65°F (18°C) and 85°F (29°C). Avoid exposing your Philodendron to cold drafts or sudden temperature fluctuations.
Fertilization: Feed your Brasil Philodendron with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer once a month during the growing season (spring and summer).
