Philodendron Burle MarxItem is for a 6 inch pot. This item ships bare root. Philodendron CareRooting a philodendron (Philodendron) is easy. Place the cutting in moist soil mix. I use a bark, coconut coir, and prelite mix. None of the leaves should be buried in the rooting medium. If they are, perch the cutting a little higher or remove another leaf -- just be sure that two or three leaves remain. Put your container in bright, indirect sunlight. I usually set mine along a windowsill or on a table near a window.In two or three weeks, roots will sprout, followed by new leaves. Gently tug on the cutting. If you feel resistance you'll know that roots have formed. Insert the cutting in good-quality potting soil in a pot that's 3-4 inches wide. If your mother plant is large enough, take three to five cuttings at one time and let all of them root in the same jar. Then when you plant them, you'll have a pot that's full and lush.PHILODENDRON PLANT CARE.Philodendron's are very easy to grow tropical plants that require little care indoors or out. Like other aroids, many species of Philodendron can be grown as houseplants, or outdoors in mild climates. They thrive in moist soils with high organic matter and grow best when provided with a mossy post or burlap wrapped pole to climb. Philodendron plants can be grown in pots, hanging baskets or outdoors as a ground cover or beautiful tree wrap. Indoors plants thrive at temperatures between 55°- 80°F and in lower light conditions than other house plants. In the ground or up an arbor, philodendrons get big and are often unrecognizable from their potted juvenile state. They add a wonderfully tropical accent to any well-lit space or cascading from your favorite hanging planter. In very cold zones a containerized Philodendron can be brought inside for the winter months. Be sure to avoid frost and freezing temperatures.SOIL.Philodendrons enjoy well drained but moist, rich organic mix. Remember try to stay away from wet, mucky or dry, sandy soils.FERTILIZER.To help establish your new Philodendron, fertilize sparingly at least 6 inches away from the base, tri-annually with a slow time released product. Unfertilized they will tend to grow very slowly. Note: The heavy salts in cheaper fertilizers will damage the roots and possibly kill the plant.GROW ZONE & LIGHT.Best outdoors if grown in zone 9b-11, find your zone here. This Philodendron requires 70-85% sunlight. Depending on your location filtered sun is best. The patio zone is 4b-11 which means the potted plant will flourish over the summer months in colder zones but must be brought inside before frost. **If you opt for local pick up please book your pick up appointment on our contact+bookings page, thank you!
