Philodendron selloum 'Xanadu' is a compact growing, easy to grow plant. It is often wider than it is tall, reaching a height of 100cm. and a width of 150cm in ideal conditions. Unlike many philodendrons, the Xanadu is an upright plant - not a climber or vine. The best part is the older a Xanadu gets the better it looks.
POSITION It will grow quickly in bright, indirect light. It will tolerate lower light but will grow very slow.
Like almost all other indoor plants, Philodendrons will hate being too close to a heater or catching the draught of an air con. Keep them well clear or risk the dreaded leaf drop.
WATER Keep soil on the dry side. Drench soil thoroughly, then allow it to become moderately dry before watering again. Water regularly from spring to autumn. Sparingly in winter. Over watering and stem rot are common problems, especially at low temperatures.
