Philodendron Micans is a great plant to add texture to your collection. The foliage unfurls to velvety, iridescent deep green with a deep purple-red color on the back side that looks like shades of rusty orange when the light shines through. You can grow these as a trailing vine or you can train them to grow up a moss pole, but either way they will look amazing!
Philodendron Micans will do best if placed in indirect light. Keep out of direct sun, bright diffused light is preferable. Most philodendrons will survive in lower light but, as with most other plants, will becomes leggy under lower light conditions.
Philodendron cordatum should be let to dry out almost completely in low to medium light but not to point of wilting. In bright light, allow soil to dry down at least 1/2 to 3/4 of its depth.
To keep your Philodendron cordatum full, place in bright, indirect light and cut back the longest of its vines occasionally to encourage new growth. Remove any leaves that become discoloured or faded. If you are watering properly and the light is good, you should get some side shoots to fill the plant out.
