Philodendron is an adaptable plant, growing happily in average room temperatures of 18C (65F) - 24C (75F). Do not allow temperatures to fall below 12C (55F). A bright to lightly shaded position, well away from direct sunlight is ideal. Avoid positioning this plant close to cold draughts and radiators. Water Philodendrons regularly to maintain evenly moist compost. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. Philodendron appreciates a humid atmosphere - stand it on a tray filled with pebbles and water. As the water evaporates it will increase humidity around the plant. Misting the foliage daily with a fine spray will also help to improve humidity.
