This philodendron variety like most prefers indirect bright light but will tolerate low light conditions making it very versatile for many indoor settings. It grows best in higher humidity levels of around 60%. It is however very hardy and it will also grow in lower humidity well as well. Some browning of the edges of the leaves can also occur when the humidity is too low.

Its best to use a loose, well-draining soil to ensure adequate air-rating of the roots and ensure its not to stay too wet. To ensure over watering does not occur only water when the top two inches of the potting medium is dry. 

This plant will grow well hanging in a pot but also looks stunning climbing up a totem or other support structure. The leaves will generally get larger and the veining more in each leaf will become more prominent faster when growing in a climbing set up.

They propagate from stem cuttings very easily. Just snip below a node, place into water and wait a few weeks then transplant to soil. Or simply put straight into soil and keep soil moist until well rooted. This plant is made for propagating given its growth rate!

This plant if digested can be mildly poisonous and irritating to pets and people.
