Philodendron Sodiroi Care

 Blog  •  Published on: 07 Nov 2020

Light: Philodendron Sodiroi thrives in bright to medium indirect light. Not suited for intense, direct sun but can be acclimated to withstand it.

Watering: When growing Philodendron Sodiroi, allow the top inch (2.5 cm.) of soil to dry out between waterings. The length of your index finger to the first knuckle is about an inch (2.5 cm.), so inserting your finger into the soil is a good way to check the moisture level. Droopy leaves can mean that the plant is getting too much or not enough water. But the leaves recover quickly when you correct the watering schedule.

Soil: Peat moss-based mix, such as African violet potting mix.

Humidity: Another reason for this plant failing spectacularly in a home environment is because of very dry air. It's a tropical plant and needs reasonable, or high humidity. If you suffer from dry air have a look at our Humidity guide for ideas as Philodendron Sodiroi are not adaptable to this requirement.

Temperature: Along with humidity and plenty of indirect sunlight, this plant also loves warmer temperatures. Normal temperatures in your house are great for most houseplants, including the Philodendron Sodiroi. The only thing you should think about when taking care of a Philodendron Sodiroi is that you shouldn't put it too close to a cold draft. Philodendron Sodiroi are sensitive when it comes to cold temperatures and sudden drops in temperature could shock the plant. Shocking Philodendron Sodiroi could kill them, so it's best to avoid this situation altogether.

Fertilizing: A weak all purpose feed once a month is more than sufficient. Don't bother in Winter unless the plant is still activity growing, i.e. new leaves are appearing. Definitely do not feed if your Philodendron Sodiroi enters a die back type of dormancy (see Anything else below).
