Philodendron Brandi - Brandtianum
This rare and highly sought-after philodendron has olive green leaves with striking gray mottling and silver markings. Although Philodendron brandtianum works well as a hanging plant, you can also train it to climb up a trellis or other support.
Light: Your Philodendron Brandi can survive in low light conditions, but grows faster and produces more leaves in medium or bright indirect light. The silver coloring will be more pronounced in higher light. Do not place in direct sunlight, as the sun will burn the foliage.
Water: Water when the 95% of soil is dry.
*We recommend Bottom-watering, sometimes called reverse watering, is when you place a plant in a bowl of water, allowing the soil and roots to soak water from the bottom up. (Naturally, your pot needs to have drainage holes for this to work.)
Humidity: Normal household humidity is fine for Philodendron Birkin, but higher humidity encourages larger leaves. Your plant will benefit from regular misting.
Temperature: Your plant will grow well in temperatures between 65-80 degrees during the day and above 55 degrees at night. Keep it away from drafts, especially during the winter months.
Food: Feed once a month during spring and summer with a liquid fertilizer for indoor plants. Feed every other month during the fall and winter.
Toxicity: Philodendron leaves are toxic to pets and humans.
