Philodendron Hastatum Care
A Philodendron Hastatum is a type of tree Philodendron. It has thinner leaves than many of its relatives and requires a more humid environment to grow well. If your home or office is very dry in the winter, place your Philodendron Hastatum near a humidifier or sit it on a wet pebble tray.
Your Philodendron Hastatum can survive in low light conditions, but grows faster and produces more leaves in medium or bright indirect light. The silver coloring will be more pronounced in higher light. Do not place in direct sunlight, as the sun will burn the foliage.
Use a potting soil high in organic matter that drains quickly.
Your Philodendron Hastatum likes warm temperatures above 55 degrees. Keep them away from drafts and open doors, especially during the winter.
Water your plant when its soil becomes dry to a depth of 1-2 inches. Water the plant until water flows into the saucer, then pour out any excess. Don’t allow the pot to stand in water, as this will cause root rot.
Feed your Philodendron Hastatum monthly in the spring and summer with a basic houseplant food diluted to half the recommended strength. No need to fertilize in the fall and winter months, when growth naturally slows.
Propagate using Stem Cuttings.
