Philodendron goeldii was previously known as Thaumatophyllum spruceanum before being reclassified. 

Philodendron goeldii is part of the Araceae family and its native range species is S. Tropical America; Venezuela and Colombia to Brazil (Amazonas) and Peru (Loreto). Its pedately arranged leaflets are in an arcuate to semi-circular rachis. It is considered a hemi-epiphytic plant so does best in a chunky, well draining mix that is kept damp.

Genus name comes from the Greek ‘philo’ meaning loving and ‘dendro’ meaning tree.

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.

Temperature: 21-27°C.  No lower than 15°C.

Humidity: Philodendron goeldii 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.

Philodendron are toxic, keep out of reach of pets and children.
