Philodendron Cordatum Gold
ALL plants shipped OUTSIDE Tasmania are now sent bare root. Do not fear this is the best way to get them all the way to you in the best possible condition. They come carefully wrapped in damp sphagnum moss to make the journey and the original pot to pop them back in once they arrive or choose a fab new pot from our range of pots.
We love the bright yellow colour on these heart shaped leaves. They are stunning. Plant is growing in a 100 mm pot, ready to trail!
The cordatum can handle lower light levels to bright, indirect light. Water when top half of soil is dry.
This philly has been a houseplant favorite for generations. This is because Philodendrons are some of the easiest tropical plants to grow indoors. They tolerate all kinds of neglect including low light, poor soil and inconsistent watering.
Philodendrons are a great first-time houseplants or gift plant. If you want to enjoy the natural beauty of plants without a lot of maintenance.
Philodendrons do best in loose, well-drained soil that is high in organic matter. They will grow in 100% sphagnum peat moss.
When growing philodendron plants, allow the top inch of soil to dry out between watering. The length of your index finger to the first knuckle is about an inch, so inserting your finger into the soil is a good way to check the moisture level. Droopy leaves can mean that the plant is getting too much or not enough water. But the leaves recover quickly when you correct the watering schedule.
Feed philodendron houseplants with a balanced liquid foliage houseplant fertilizer that contains macro-nutrients. Water the plant with the fertilizer monthly in spring and summer and every six to eight weeks in fall and winter. Slow growth and small leaf size is the plant’s way of telling you that it isn’t getting enough fertilizer. Pale new leaves usually indicate that the plant isn’t getting enough calcium and magnesium, which are essential micro-nutrients for philodendrons.
Philodendron should not be consumed by animals or humans.We recommend the Australian made Munash Organics soil food & foliage spray or The Plant Runner plant food or neem oil to keep you plants happy and healthy!
