Plant Information


This Philodendron Snowdrift is in a 6” clear pot with aeration holes.  Philodendron Snowdrift is a popular, uncommon cultivar of the Philodendron genus.  Known for its stunning foliage, Snowdrifts feature large, heart-shaped leaves that are primarily a deep green color with prominent light green and white variegation.  The variegation resembles a snowy pattern, which is how the plant got its name.


Care and Maintenance



Place your Philodendron Snowdrift in bright, indirect light.  Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves and lead to sunburn.



Allow the top inch or two of the soil to dry out before watering.  Stick your finger into the soil to gauge moisture levels, or use a moisture meter.  Water thoroughly when the top part of the soil feels dry, but avoid overwatering, as it can cause root rot.



Snowdrift Philodendrons prefer higher humidity levels.  If your indoor environment is dry, mist the plant regularly or place a humidifier nearby.



Keep the plant in a warm environment with temperatures ranging between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C).  Avoid exposing it to cold drafts or sudden temperature changes.



Use a well-draining potting mix that retains some moisture without becoming waterlogged.  A mix formulated for aroids or general indoor plants works well.



During the growing season (spring and summer), feed your Snowdrift Philodendron with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.  Reduce or stop fertilizing during the dormant winter months



Trim any yellowing or damaged leaves to encourage healthy growth. You can also prune to control the plant’s shape and size.



As the Snowdrift Philodendron grows, it may benefit from some support, such as a moss pole or trellis, to help it climb.


Pests and Diseases

Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests like spider mites, thrips, aphids, and mealybugs.  If you spot any pests, take action promptly with appropriate treatments.



To ensure even growth and avoid the plant leaning towards the light source, rotate it every couple of weeks.



Dust can accumulate on the leaves, hindering their ability to absorb light.  Wipe the leaves gently with a damp cloth or give the plant a shower occasionally to keep it clean.


Remember that each plant’s needs can vary slightly, so pay attention to how your Snowdrift Philodendron responds to its environment and adjust your care routine accordingly. Regular observation and care will help your plant thrive and maintain its striking appearance.
