Too much dry soil will kill the plant. Too much water, on the other hand, will. Overwatering is a common cause of root rot in Philodendrons (also known as wet feet).
Before you water the soil, make sure the first two layers, or two inches, are dry. The simplest way to test this is to stick your finger into the soil until your knuckle is in contact with it.
If the soil is wet, wait a day or two before inspecting it again. If the soil is dry, you can water the plant.
During the coldest months of the year, you only need to water the plant three times.
The cold allows water to remain in the soil for a longer period of time. As a result, you won’t have to water your plant as frequently.
They are sensitive to cold temperatures. During the colder months, make sure the heat is set to an appropriate level so that it does not freeze.
During the winter, avoid placing it near an air conditioner or an open window.
They only require a moderate amount of humidity to survive.
The healthiest Philodendron Florida ghosts, on the other hand, live in high humidity. They’re like the jungles from which they came.
You should always keep the plant at a high humidity level whenever possible.
If you live in a dry climate, you may need to add more moisture to your home to keep your plant alive.
Making a pebble tray for your Philodendron Florida ghost is the best way to increase humidity.
It’s a straightforward procedure. Fill a tray halfway with pebbles.
Fill the tray with water once you’ve finished with the pebbles. Make certain that the water does not flow over the pebbles.
All that remains is for you to place your plant on the pebbles. Moisture is created for your plant as the water evaporates.
When the tray is empty, re-fill it with water.
Nitrogen will ensure that your plant’s leaves grow large and that it glows with green health.
It is safer to fertilize your plant more frequently and with half the amount of fertilizer that you normally would. Because it grows slowly, it requires more nutrition to give it a boost.
Before fertilizing your Philodendron, make sure the soil is moist. It is harmful to the roots to fertilize the plant when the soil is dry.
