INDOOR PLANT - Philodendron Hope
Philodendrons were first discovered in Brazil’s rainforests. The name Philodendron comes from the Greek word phileo, meaning “to love” and dendron meaning “tree”. Philodendrons are a diverse genus made up of nearly 500 species, most commonly found in tropical, humid climates. In nature they are typically large and imposing plants, climbing other plants and growing on other trees.
The Philodendron Hope has pretty special wiggly giant thick elephant ear shaped glossy leaves and is absolutely perfect for creating a lush green tropical oasis in your home. It is a "self-heading" philodendron - meaning that it does not crawl or climb in a vine-like manner. Its leaves appear from a root clump on long, light green, firm but fleshy stems - that forms a stunning small clump of its distinct gorgeous foliage.
The Philodendron Hope is able to withstand less light than some of its Philodendron cousins. If you want a thick glossy plant then position in a room that receives a good amount of bright in-direct sunlight.
Water your Philodendron Hope when the top 2-3 cm's of soil are dry to touch - the regularity of this will depend on the season and the spot you are growing your plant. When you do water it give it a good soak that all the root bed can access water - this will give you a strong and healthy plant. Then allow to dry before re-watering.
WE RECOMMENDED PLANTING IN...
If you are looking for an easy-care option the Mr Kitly self-watering pots are the perfect choice to re-pot your Hope into. The 20cm size would be best planted into a 25cm Mr Kitly pot and the 25cm into a 30cm Mr Kitly Pot. If looking for a decorative ceramic pot choose one with a drainage hole that is between 5-10cm in diameter, to give your Hope extra room to grow.
