General Philodendron Verrucosum Plant Care

Humidity

This is tricky. Philodendron verrucosum likes over 70% humidity but still cooler temperatures. Your best approach is to make sure you keep it well watered and also adjust the humidity settings in your home regularly. Check our watering tips below for more details.

Light

Philodendron Verrucosum is an understory plant so it doesn’t enjoy direct sunlight. You can keep it a few steps back to increase its growth rate.

Soil

Pot your Philodendron in a fast-draining soil mix to allow it to enjoy the water without sitting in it. Avoid sandy or dry soils, as well as muddy, wet ones.

Temperature

It might be a jungle plant, but Philodendron verrucosum likes it cooler actually! It grows best in winter in its Ecuadorean home, so keep it at 16-21 Celsius (around 60 Fahrenheit).

Watering

Water once or twice a week, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Increase frequency with increased light.

Fertilizing

Fertilize away from the base at least 3 times a year. The best fertilizer to use is slow-release fertilizer. This sort of fertilizer is solid and either comes as little sticks or colorful small balls that you put into the soil. If you do not fertilize your Philodendron verrucosum it will grow very slowly.

Propagation
