McColleys Finale (Philodendron)

Plant Care Instructions*

Info: 

Philodendron 'McColley's Finale' is quite the colorful houseplant! It has a beautiful orange, almost burgundy new growth that fades to a deep green with age.

Plant Care*:

Temperature
The ideal temperature for this plant is 60-75ºF/16-24ºC. Temperatures above and beyond this could cause the plants growth to slow down.

Light
This plant is relatively durable and it can thrive in many different conditions but it is more suited to bright light but not direct sun. It can, however, cope with low light.

Watering
Through Spring and Summer, the soil should be kept moist but during winter the soil should be allowed to dry out between waterings.

Soil
Typically, any high quality, fast draining potting mix is good.

Fertilizer
The Philodendron is a plant that can grow very quickly and should be fed every month during spring and summer, especially when new leaves are growing. During the winter, feeding can take place every other month using a basic houseplant food.

Re-Potting
When the roots compact and form a tight ball it is time for the plant to be repotted into a planter that is around 2-3 inches larger. Repotting should take place during the latter part of winter or spring before the plant begins to grow new leaves.

Humidity
This species is quite tolerant of dry conditions. During summer it's good practice to mist the leaves.

* Standard care recommendations - you may need to adjust based on your home or office environment.
