Philodendron Goeldii

$15

Philodendron Goeldii, aka Thaumatophyllum spruceanum, Philodendron Fun Bun, or Finger Leaf, is a stunning plant with vibrant green, lanceolate leaves that radiate from spiralling stems. The mature form of their foliage gives off a similar vibe as that of a Schefflera, or Umbrella Tree. As the plant develops, it will have a growth pattern similar to that of a Philodendron Hope, starting off like a bush and then growing taller as it ages.

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will do well in medium light but will grow faster with brighter light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They need to be watered when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.

Since they prefer to be root bound, only repot your plant when its roots have outgrown their current home. Rotate your plant every week or so to encourage even, consistent, and healthy growth. Allow the soil to dry out more between waterings during the winter seasons but make sure there is still plenty of humidity.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
