6” Hanging Pot Philodendron Micans
Your Philodendron Micans Velvet can survive in low light conditions, but grows faster and produces richer coloring in bright indirect light. This plant can only tolerate some direct sun in the morning; extended periods of direct light can burn the foliage.
Water your Philodendron Micans Velvet when the soil volume is 50-75% dry. Water thoroughly until water comes out of the drainage hole, and be sure to empty the saucer of any excess water. This plant is sensitive to overwatering—if the soil remains constantly wet, the roots will rot.
Average household humidity is fine for your Philodendron Micans Velvet but higher humidity encourages larger leaves. Your plant will benefit from a pebble tray or adding a humidifier, but avoid directly misting the leaves.
Your Philodendron Micans Velvet will grow well in temperatures between 65-80°F. Keep away from drafts, especially during the winter months.
Feed your Philodendron Micans Velvet monthly in the spring and summer with a general-purpose fertilizer. No fertilizer is needed in the fall and winter months when the plant is dormant. Always fertilize on moist soil, never dry, as it can burn the roots.
This plant is toxic to pets and humans if ingested.
