Care and Maintenance


Caring for Philodendron Summer Glory is relatively straightforward, making it a popular choice for both beginner and experienced plant keepers.



Provide bright, indirect light for Philodendron Summer Glory.  While it can tolerate some lower light conditions, placing it in bright, filtered light will help promote optimal growth and vibrant leaf color.



Allow the top inch or two of the soil to dry out before watering. 



This tropical plant appreciates higher humidity levels.  If your indoor environment is dry, consider misting the plant regularly or using a humidity tray to maintain adequate moisture.



Maintain temperatures between 65-85°F (18-29°C) for optimal growth.  Avoid exposing the plant to sudden temperature fluctuations or drafts.



During the growing season (spring and summer), feed the plant with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.  Reduce or halt fertilization during the dormant winter months.



Regularly prune to remove any dead or yellowing leaves and encourage bushier growth. You can also trim back excessively long vines to promote a more compact appearance.


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 is unique, so closely monitor your plant and adjust its care based on its response.  By providing the right conditions, you'll be rewarded with a stunning and healthy plant that adds a touch of tropical elegance to your indoor space.
