How to propagate a Philodendron Hedaraceum (Micans)?
- You can propagate by taking a cutting of the plant with:
- 2 leaves and 2 nodes or
- 1 leaf and 1 node
- Stick it in water, with the nodes touching the water so that the roots grow well.
- A PRO Tip for propagation would be to use an opaque bottle or jar for propagation.
How to care for a Philodendron Hedaraceum (Micans)?
In Nature, the plant thrives in bright indirect sunlight. Of course, that would be idea for the Philodendron Micans. But, you can grow them in low light parts of your home. It should receive indirect light though.
Water when the top few inches of soil starts getting dry. Water them fully until you see the water coming out of the drainage holes. During summer and spring months, keep the soil moist. But, do not overwater as the roots will rot. In the winter, water only when the soil is completely dry.
The ideal temperature for this plant is between 65°-75ºF (18.3°-23.9ºC) during the day and above 55º F (12.8ºC) at night. Their growth could be slow, if the temperature is not within this range.
