Philodendron ‘Xanadu’

This fairly quick growing houseplant – the Philodendron Xanadu – has serrated leaves and creates an attractive tropical look to your home or office. These indoor plants prefer a humid, warm subtropical climate.

They aren’t climbing plants but are upright and actually grow happily in shaded areas of the garden. Gardeners love them as they are low-maintenance and look particularly good growing alongside swimming pools. It’s an adaptable plant and also looks good in a trendy looking pot.

 

Caring for your Philodendron Xanadu –

 

  • It will grow happily indoors or outside on a patio if it receives ample light, preferably filtered sunlight.
  • Your Philodendron Xanadu will do well in a well-draining soil. The soil needs to be rich as these plants are used to growing in rich, moist soil in forests. The right soil for this tropical plant is loose and nutritious.
  • It prefers to be watered consistently, making sure to keep the soil moist.
  • Fertilize your plant in the Spring and during the Summer. Potted plants can be fed with a liquid fertilizer. Just read the labelling to know precisely how much and how often.
  • You can also wipe the leaves off with a soft, damp cloth. These plants love to be taken outdoors every other week and given a bit of a drenching with the hose.

 

Your Xanadu might Require Repotting

When your Philodendron Xanadu is happy it will grow new stems and might get too big for its pot. Then it will be time to divide the root cluster and to replant into new pots that make wonderful gifts for someone.

To ensure your tropical Philodendron Xanadu gets off to a good start, buy the plant from people who have healthy, well developed plants. Toronto Bulk Flowers is the best place to look for beautiful flowers, plants and garden accessories.
