Philodendron Gloriosum Care
Light: Philodendron Gloriosum prefers bright indirect light, though they can adjust to medium levels of light. Keep them out of harsh direct sunlight, as too much of it can scorch their leaves!
Watering: Allow the top 2"- 3" of soil to dry out before watering. Try to keep the soil evenly moist. Over-watering, wet leaves, and soggy soil makes an Philodendron Gloriosum plant susceptible to a variety of serious fungal infections. Check the soil frequently until you are sure of the plant's watering needs. Philodendron Gloriosum requires less water during the winter when it's dormant.
Soil: Philodendron Gloriosum likes rich, loose potting soil that will drain well but is still high in organic matter. They can grow in 100 percent sphagnum peat moss.
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 Gloriosum are not adaptable to this requirement.
Temperature: Philodendron Gloriosum will start to suffer below 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Some varieties will die back during colder weather and resprout from the rhizome.
Fertilizing: No fancy restaurants needed to court this beauty as it has very simple, easy-to-please tastes. A standard houseplant fertilizer of good quality will work. Just follow the directions of the type you choose and leave off the feedings during fall and winter.
