Philodendron Moonlight


Philodendron Moonlight has eye-catching, neon green foliage that grows in non-vining bundles, similar to a shrub, unlike other members of the Araceae family. It is a stunning yet low maintenance plant that will provide colour and beauty to any home. The spear-shaped leaves start out a vibrant, lime green colour and then fade over time as they age.

They should not be in a position to the see the sun directly, as it is too intense for them. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is fine 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.
A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window, as they will enjoy bright light even more. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
They need to be watered when the top half of soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It may 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.
They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist every few days or get a humidifier.
If your plant begins to get too leggy, prune the stretched out growth and root those cuttings in water, ensuring there is a node (section of stem where a removed leaf or branch meets the stem) in the water, from which the roots will form. Make sure to move your plant somewhere where it will receive brighter light to avoid the same thing happening again. In the future, once the cutting has rooted, pot that cutting back into the original plant to make it more full.
The plant comes with a default nursery 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.
