Tortum is also called Philodendron Bipinattifidum. It is an evergreen plant that belongs to the Arum family.
Originally from tropical parts of America, Philodendron Tortum grows well in warm temperatures between (15-30 degrees Celsius) and a good amount of humidity between 60-80%.
This plant thrives well in bright indirect sunlight, neutral soil. Water just before the soil dries out about once a week.
The Philodendron Tortum is a multistemmed vine with a bushy appearance and is considered an epiphyte. The leaves of the Tortum look like a skeleton due to their thin and long appearance.
The plant has several air-purifying benefits, which include neutralizing indoor poisons such as benzene, formaldehyde, and air pollutions.
Philodendron Tortum needs to be placed in large pots as they grow in size quite rapidly. The soil used for potting must be fresh and fertilised.
Philodendron Tortum should be watered well, deep enough so that the soil does not get dry too soon. However, standing water should be drained immediately to prevent clogging.
During the winter season, the plant should be watered less with an increased duration between watering. Winters keep the soil moist longer. Therefore, by increasing the time between the watering, you will give the soil enough time to dry.
Philodendron immediately reacts to too much or too little watering. Their leaves start to droop, and their color starts to fade.
Water when the soil is about to dry out but never let it dry out completely. In general apartment conditions, water about once a week.
Philodendron Tortum enjoys medium sunlight and will grow best with bright indirect light. This means the plant prefers indirect light as direct light damages the plant.
The damage can be irreversible, and the leaves of the Tortum plant might get burnt if the direct sunlight was too intense for multiple hours.
Philodendron Tortum prefers bright and open spaces. Therefore, the place where they are kept is important. I prefer keeping my Philodendron Tortum near to the window but not too close so direct sunlight never reaches the plant.
Even after constant care, the leaves may start to yellow. There is nothing to worry about leaves yellow when they wish to make more room for newer ones.

Disclaimer: We love our plant babies! We talk to them, sing to them, we even cuddle them at times! And we pack these gorgeous plants for shipment as carefully as we possibly can! However, we do ask that you keep in mind that once they leave our store we can not guarantee how carefully they are handled in transit. And I can guarantee they have not been sung to or talked to by the post men! So if a leaf if bent, a little bruised or maybe a small stem broken off, we can not control that. But, never fear, we do guarantee that your plant is healthy and in the best condition possible after a long journey! If by some random chance your plants don't arrive in great condition, never fear, we've got you covered. Just email our customer service team email@example.com with a quick pic (iPhone pics are excellent, and we love a good selfie). We will either replace the plants pronto or refund you in full (whatever works best).
