Light conditions: This Velvet Leaf prefers medium direct light, but can also tolerate bright indirect light and medium indirect light. Rotate periodically to keep its shape. If you notice leaf burning move the plant away from direct sunlight.
Watering: Allow the top two to four inches of the soil to thoroughly dry out between waterings. Be careful not to overwater. Philodendron micans is drought-tolerant.
During the winter months, the soil can be allowed to almost completely dry out. Be generous when watering. Do not let your plant constantly sit in water, but do allow your plant ample time for the soil to adequately absorb water.
All plants are different! There can be variations in colour, variegation, growth, and maturity. While most houseplants have the potential to produce flowers, it is rare that they will do so in an indoor environment.
We recommend keeping new plants isolated for ~7 days to monitor for pests, regardless of where they're from.
If your plants were shipped to you, unwrap them and remove wood shavings from soil (if any). They maybe thirsty, so give them a drink of water if needed
Whether you live around the corner or across the country, moving is stressful for plants. Don't be alarmed by leaf loss, browning or yellowing, or a little light wear & tear! Please don't repot or fertilise for at least two weeks to avoid stressing plants out further. **This will compromise our 14 day guarantee.
