Philodendron Maximum Care
Basic household humidity is fine for your Philodendron Maximum, but higher humidity encourages larger leaves. Your plant will benefit from regular misting.
Your Philodendron Maximum 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 rich quick-draining soil for Philodendron. You may have to add a little sand to your usual soil mix.
Your Philodendron Maximum likes warm temperatures above 55 degrees. Keep them away from drafts and open doors, especially during the winter.
Water your Philodendron Maximum when the top 50% of soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.
Feed your Philodendron Maximum 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.
