Xavier The Philodendron Xanadu Care Guide

PHILODENDRON XANADU PLANT LIGHTING

Xavier likes medium to bright indirect light, avoid direct light. He also tolerates light shade and his leaves will turn slightly darker. Too much shade and he will become a little bit limp and lanky.

WATERING YOUR PHILODENDRON XANADU PLANT

In the summer from March to September keep Xavier's soil fairly moist, we recommend watering once a week. Watering Wednesday. Xavier quite likes his soil to dry between waterings so use your finger to test the moisture of the soil before giving him a drink.
 
In the winter from October to February reduce watering to less than once a week. To make sure you're not overwatering put your finger into the top of the soil, if the soil is wet do not water, if the soil is dry, it's time to water.

HUMIDITY FOR YOUR PHILODENDRON XANADU PLANT

Xavier will tolerate normal room humidity.

FERTILISER FOR YOU PHILODENDRON XANADU PLANT

From March to August give Xavier some houseplant fertiliser every month when watering.

REPOTTING YOUR PHILODENDRON XANADU PLANT

When the roots start to grow out of the bottom opening of the pot, it is time to put Xavier into a larger pot, this should roughly be every 2-3 years. For soil, we recommend a good draining soil.
