Philodendron Prince of Orange

Placement

Humidity

Basic household humidity is fine for your Prince of Orange, but higher humidity encourages larger leaves. Your plant will benefit from occasional misting.

Placement

Watering Needs

Water your peperomia ginny thoroughly and allow the soil to dry 75% between waterings. It is better to underwater than overwater, as they can store water in their fleshy stems and leaves

Placement

Water

Water your Prince of Orange until water flows freely from the drainage holes located in the bottom of the pot. Allow the soil to dry out slightly between watering. Your Prince of Orange is sensitive to overwatering. If the soil remains constantly wet, the roots will rot.

Placement

Food

Feed your Prince of Orange monthly in the spring and summer with a basic houseplant food diluted to half the recommended strength. If the leaves curl or the tips turn brown, it may be getting too much fertilizer. No fertilizer is needed in the winter months.

Placement

Toxity

Your Prince of Orange leaves are toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will result in swelling of the lips and tongue, and stomach irritation with possible vomiting

Placement

Additional Care

As the plant ages, the bottom leaves will fall off or turn brown. Use clean, sharp scissors to avoid tearing or bruising the stems. Trim out any dead, discolored, or damaged, leaves. Wash the leaves frequently to prevent dust from clogging its pores. Your Prince of Orange loves to lean towards the light, so rotating it every week or so will help it stay full on all sides.
