Philodendron Gloriosum 2
Philodendron Gloriosum grows slightly slower than other philodendron. A moss pole is not necessary.
Light: Bright indirect light. Too much light can burn the leaves. Too little will slow growth and cause bigger distances between the leaves.
Water: keep the soil moist but not damp.
Fertilizer: We recommend using worm casting. This can be sprinkled on top of the soil and watered or mixed into the potting mix itself.
Humidity: Grows better in higher humidity (60-80%). Spray the plant with water daily.
Temperature: Grows best in a warmer environment. Ideal day temperature is 23°C. Avoid temperatures below 15°C at night.
Potting Mix: An airy, well-draining soil is ideal. A good aroid mix is coco coir, bark, perlite and worm castings.
Toxic: This plant is toxic. The sap can cause irritation to people and animals. Keep away from small children and pets.
