TENDER LOVING CARE
Philodendron Selloum is excellent at purifying the air of harmful toxins such as: formaldehyde and benzene (which is found in detergents, plastics and pesticides), trichloroethylene (found in dry cleaning solvents), toluene (which is found in paint thinner and nail polish), ammonia and, of course, carbon dioxide.
Philodendron Selloum should be placed in medium to bright, indirect light. It does best in moderate lighting. It will not do well in low light situations.
Keep the soil slightly moist but not soggy Don’t allow it to sit in wet or soggy soil to prevent root rot. Water by flooding the pot slowly with water and allow to drain. Don’t water again until the top 2″ of soild is dry. During the winter, water less often.
Rotate regularly to ensure even growth. Prune to remove dead leaves. You can cut off the base of the leaf stem of the primary plant trunk. If the leaves are dense, the leaves should be cut off as close to the soil as possible.
Fertilize once a month or every 2 weeks during spring to early fall. Use diluted liquid houseplant fertilizer.
