Philodendron Pluto 4"

Introducing the bold, lush, and uniquely patterned Philodendron Pluto! This striking aroid has made quite a splash in the houseplant world in recent years. Originally hailing from tropical regions of South America, the Pluto philodendron boasts large, deeply lobed leaves with olive green and chartreuse variegation that is truly out of this world.

How to care for your new Philodendron Pluto plant: 

 

SUNLIGHT: One thing that makes Philodendron Pluto so versatile is its ability to adapt to various light levels. While bright, indirect light keeps the foliage most vibrant, this plant can readily tolerate lower light conditions found indoors. Even in areas with no direct sun exposure, Philodendron Pluto will grow quite well. Northern or east-facing windows work beautifully. In lower light, the leaf variegation may become greener but the plant will continue expanding nicely. Sheltered outdoor locations in mild climates are also suitable.

 

WATER: Philodendron Pluto prefers a consistent moisture level but dislikes overly wet or waterlogged soil. The best way to maintain its watering needs is to allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. This indicates the roots have utilized the previous watering. When watering, pour room temperature water slowly into the pot until it drains freely from the base. This ensures thorough saturation. Allow any excess water to drain fully before returning the plant to its decorative pot. During cooler winter months, the plant may need less frequent watering such as every 10-14 days. Monitor soil moisture and adjust as needed based on environmental factors.

 

HUMIDITY/TEMPERATURE: As a tropical plant native to South American rainforests, Philodendron Pluto thrives in warm, humid conditions. Philodendron Pluto enjoys average home humidity but will truly flourish when humidity levels are 40% or higher. Use a humidifier or pebble tray to boost moisture in the air if needed. Keep the plant away from hot, dry drafts from heating vents which can dry out the foliage.

 

TIPS: Since the Pluto is a climbing plant, it also should be given support to climb such as a moss pole or trellis. 

 * Note: These plants are toxic to pets & humans when ingested.
