Philodendron Martianum Care
A Philodendron Martianum 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 Martianum near a humidifier or sit it on a wet pebble tray.
A Philodendron Martianum can grow almost anywhere except in the direct sun.
Use a rich quick-draining soil for Philodendron. You may have to add a little sand to your usual soil mix.
Temperatures between 65°-75 ºF (18.3°-23.9 ºC) during the day and above 55 º F (12.8 ºC) at night.
Water your Philodendron Martianum when the top 50-75% of soil is dry. Water until liquid 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 Martianum monthly in the spring and summer with a basic houseplant food diluted to half the recommended strength. Fertilize every other month in the fall and winter.
Propagate using Stem Cuttings.
