Full description and specifications

Philodendron scandens 'Pictus', sometimes known as Philodendron hederaceum 'Pictus' or Philodendron 'Silver', is a popular indoor plant, valued for its decorative leaves and relatively easy care. It is part of the Araceae family and is native to the tropical areas of South America.

Care

  • Light : Prefers indirect, moderate to bright light. Direct sunlight can burn the leaves, while too little light can reduce variegation.
  • Watering : Watering must be regular, keeping the soil evenly moist, but not excessively watered. Let the first 1-2 cm of soil dry before watering again. Avoid stagnation of water in the saucer of the pot.
  • Soil : A well-drained soil mix.
  • Humidity : Being a tropical plant, Philodendron 'Pictus' prefers high humidity. It can benefit from occasional sprays or it can be placed next to a humidifier.
  • Fertilization : Fertilize with a diluted liquid fertilizer for indoor plants, once a month during the period of active growth (spring and summer).
  • Grooming : Periodically clean the leaves of dust to allow the plant to breathe and absorb light efficiently. Cut off any dry or damaged leaves to stimulate growth.
