PRO TIP: Rotate your plant every few weeks so that it grows proportionately. Prince of Orange love to lean towards the light, so rotating will help it stay full on all sides.
Always be sure to assess your plant’s watering needs upon receiving it. Before giving your plant a drink, it is best to check the moisture level in the soil first to ensure it isn’t moist right beneath the surface. Also, consider aerating the soil of your plant before the initial watering. We compact the soil to avoid shifting during transit, so aerating can help the soil breathe and allow moisture to be released.
Philodendrons prefer soil that is consistently slightly moist, especially if you want them to grow big leaves. As epiphytes with aerial roots, they are sensitive to overwatering, so they don’t want to sit in soggy soil. Typically, you shouldn’t have to water your Prince of Orange more than once a week. When the top 1-2 inches of the soil are dry, your plant could use a drink. Rest easy knowing this plant is hardy and easy to care for!
Rotate your plant periodically to ensure even growth on all sides and dust the leaves often so the plant can photosynthesize efficiently. When dusting the leaves, also take the opportunity to inspect the undersides and keep an eye out for pests.
Remember each plant is a unique living thing and may have varying needs, especially in their individual locations. Pay attention to the condition of your Philodendron Prince of Orange and its watering needs and you will have a long and happy relationship.
