Name Philodendron Imperial Green
Origin Cultivated variety of Philodendron erubescens
Light Requirements Place in bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can cause leaf damage.
Watering Water once the top half of the soil feels dry. Will not tolerate being overwatered.
Soil Well-draining soil is essential, but it should also have some moisture holding capability. A mix of 50% potting mix and 50% drainage amendments such as coarse sand, perlite, or pumice works well, although a specialist Aroid mix is ideal.
Temperature Philodendron Imperial Green will thrive in temperatures of 60-85°F(16-30°C). Hot and cold drafts can cause leaf damage.
Fertilizer Fertilize every 4 weeks during spring and summer, but err on the side of caution with frequency and strength of the preparation. I use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer at half strength.
Humidity Will do best in moderate to high humidity of 40-60%, but reasonably tolerant of lower humidity levels due to its glossy leaves.
Pruning Minimal pruning required. Remove dead or damaged leaves as necessary.
Propagation Philodendron Imperial Green can be propagated from stem cuttings in water or soil. It can be tricky to take stem cuttings due to the proximity of the leaves. Commercial plants are produced by tissue culture.
Re-Potting Only needs to be repotted once significantly rootbound.
Diseases and Pests Bacterial blight and bacterial leaf spot can occur in an overwatered or stressed plant. Fairly pest resistant. Check your plant regularly and treat it promptly.
Toxicity Mildly toxic to humans and animals
