Philodendron tortum is part of the Araceae family and is native to Brazil (Amazonas), it is a root-climber always above 2m on tree boles (holes in trees). The lobed leaf is pinnatified (cut to the midrib), new growth emerges a light pink colour and unfurls slowly, turning green in time. Add a moss pole for support.

Pot: 15cm diameter.

Height: Approximately 50cm from base of height.

Featured in Charlie bronze (18cm), pot not included.

Light: Bright indirect light, meaning the plant sees the sun for 0-4 hours per day - this could be through trees or a translucent curtain, it’s important for the plant to see the sky in order to thrive. 

Water: Allow the first 2-3 inches of mix to dry out, pour water slowly over the top and allow the water to pass through the drainage holes.

Potting mix: A well draining mix composed of coco coir, perlite or vermiculite, orchid bark and worm castings.

Fertilising: Feed your plant every other watering during the growing season or when you observe active growth. You can dilute fertiliser to half the recommended amount but never add more.

Humidity: Philodendron prefer higher humidity but do well to adapt to average home humidity. You can increase humidity by placing the plant on a watered pebble tray or using a humidifier.
