Philodendron Paraiso Verde plants prefer bright, indirect light. Avoid placing her in direct sunlight, as this can burn her leaves.


Use a finger to probe the top inch of soil and water your Marina Ruy Barbosa when she feels dry to the touch. Soak throughly, let water run through drainage holes in the pot. Do not overwater, as this can lead to root rot. Ensure proper drainage and prevent water from pooling in the pot. Make sure to use a planter with drainage holes, which can be nested inside of a decorative planter if desired.

a good soil mix for Paraiso Verde
rich well-draining soil is great for the Philodendron Paraiso Verdes roots


Marina Ruy Barbosas love a rich, well draining soil with chunky bits to help oxygenate the roots. A mixture of 1/3 orchid bark, 1/3 perlite and 1/3 compost works well. Our Philodendron Friday Potting Mix is suitable for most aroids and augments these ratios with additional ingredients like charcoal and worm castings to help supply added nutrients.


Fertilize your Paraiso Verde plant once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.


Philodendron Paraiso Verdes prefer moderately high humidity (around 60% in their native habitat). To increase humidity, you can place a humidifier nearby, group the plant with other plants or utilize an greenhouse cabinet or other high humidity space.


Repot your Marina Ruy Barbosa plant every 1-2 years, or when it becomes root-bound. Transfer to a pot with drainage holes thats an inch or two larger.

Paraiso Verdes propagate via node cuttings. Select an area with a few nodes and remove it from the mother with clean scissors. Trim excess leaves and root in water or sphagnum moss.


Trim any yellow or brown leaves off your Philodendron Paraiso Verde as they appear. You can prune the plant to control its size and shape.


Marina Ruy Barbosa can be grown outdoors in USDA Hardiness Zones 9 to 11.

By following these care tips, your Paraiso Verde plant should thrive and continue to add beauty to your space.
