Humidity

Higher humidity is a plus, but Philodendron do well in basic household humidity.

Light

The Philodendron Gualeanum can survive in low light conditions, but grows faster and produces more leaves in medium or bright indirect light. The variegation will be more pronounced in higher light. Do not put it in direct sunlight since the sun will burn the foliage.

Soil

Use a potting soil high in organic matter that drains quickly.

Temperature

Your plant will grow well in temperatures between 70-80 degrees during the day and above 55 degrees at night. Keep it away from drafts, especially during the winter months.

Watering

Water your Philodendron Gualeanum 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

Feed monthly in the spring and fall, every other week in the summer, and never in the winter. Use a balanced plant food diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength. If the leaves are getting smaller and new growth is slow, the plant needs more food.
