Humidity

Your Philodendron Duckei will tolerate the level of humidity found in most homes, but high humidity promotes lush growth and shiny foliage, so it is a good idea to mist the plant regularly.

Light

A {{plant}} grows well in bright indirect light.

Soil

A Philodendron Duckei grows best in a rich, slightly alkaline soil that retains moisture. The leaf tips burn if there is too much salt in the soil usually due to over-feeding.

Temperature

Your Philodendron Duckei will grow well in temperatures between 65-80 degrees during the day and above 55 degrees at night. Keep it away from drafts, especially during the winter months.

Watering

Water your Philodendron Duckei well and allow the top 50% of the soil to dry before watering again. Yellow leaves may indicate overwatering, while brown leaves mean the plant needs more water.

Fertilizing

Fertilize monthly during the spring and summer with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength. If light levels are high, increase to bi-weekly feeding. Too much plant food can cause excess salt to build up in the soil which can result in leaf burn.

Propagation

Propagate using Stem Cuttings.
