Philodendron Mexicanum is a popular indoor plant known for its large, glossy leaves and easy care. Here's a simple guide to help you take care of your Philodendron Mexicanum:
Philodendron Mexicanum prefer bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can burn its leaves, so it's best to place the plant near a window that receives bright but indirect light.
Water the plant thoroughly once a week, making sure the soil is moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top layer of soil to dry between waterings.
Philodendron Mexicanum prefer high humidity. To increase humidity, place a humidifier nearby or mist the leaves regularly with water.
Philodendron Mexicanum prefer temperatures between 65-80°F (18-26°C). Avoid placing the plant near cold drafts or air conditioning vents.
Fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength.
Philodendron Mexicanum can be propagated by stem cuttings. Take a cutting with at least two leaves and a node, and place it in water or moist soil. Keep the soil moist and the cutting in bright, indirect light until it develops roots.
