Philodendrons make great houseplants because of their low-maintenance nature, but it’s still important to maintain proper growing conditions to keep your plant healthy. Care for your philodendron by aiming to mimic its natural tropical environment: Provide plenty of warmth and moisture near a sunny window.

🔆Light: This plant prefer bright indirect light becausedirect sunlight can cause burning on the leaves. This makes them perfect plants for a north-facing window.
Light through a window is not direct sunlight as the light will be filtered as it comes through the glass, which impacts its intensity. This means that this light can be at least 50% less intense than direct outdoor sunlight, although sunlight through a south-facing window can be close to direct light. Philodendron can survive with very little light but will grow faster and healthier in bright indirect light. Indoors, set them up by a window that gets bright, indirect light. Too little light can result in leggy growth with lots of space in between the leaves.
