Philodendron Selloum Care Tips
Light & Philodendrons
Philodendrons will tolerate some shade but prefer strong light. Light requirements for indoors are four to eight hours of filtered light. Do no place the plant in a window where it will receive direct sunlight through the glass.
Water & Soil
Philodendrons prefer slightly moist soil. They take misting of foliage well. Whether in containers or open ground outdoors, philodendron selloum prefers a good organic, loose, and well-drained soil like premium potting soil mix.
Feed lightly and frequently for good growth and color with a 20-20-20 or similar tropical house plant fertilizer for indoors, or tree and shrub fertilizer for outdoors.
Insects & Pests
Selloums are susceptible to spider mites, especially when kept indoors. Timing is very important to kill the entire egg hatch. Use spreader sticker to obtain optimum coverage and be sure to spray both sides of the leaves. Consult an Heirloom Gardens Texas Certified Nursery Professional for current recommendations.
Frost & Philodendrons
When Philodendrons are planted outdoors in the ground, they should be protected from frost, as leaves will be damaged. They will put new foliage out in early spring.
