The Brasil Philodendron will do well in just about any room. Place her in a room that gets a medium amount of natural light, or even in an office or bathroom that gets low light. Rotate the plant occasionally to encourage even growth.
The Brasil Philodendron will thrive in bright, indirect sunlight but will be perfectly fine in low levels of sunlight as well. Avoid placing her in direct sun, as the rays can scorch the leaves.
Water the plant moderately to keep the soil evenly moist, but not soggy. Water the plant lightly and slowly from above, allowing water to soak through to the roots. Reduce watering during the cold season.
Does well at room temperature between 60°F - 77°F. Cold temperatures should be avoided.
Prefers higher levels of humidity, around 75% or above. If the air around the plant is too dry, use a humidifier or occasionally mist the plant to increase humidity.
The plant can live happily in the provided pot for up to a year. Check if the plant is ready to be repotted by touching the soil and seeing if it has become loose, or if the roots have become overgrown. Irrigate the pot in order to loosen the soil before transplanting. Repot using a rich, well-draining soil. When your plant is ready to be repotted, you can follow our simple how-to guide.
