Prince Of Orange Plant Care Guide
Regarding the care of any plant, we need to focus on a few main things like humidity, light, water, and soil conditions depending upon the natural habits of a plant. As philodendron is a rainforest plant but we are totally unable to provide such conditions, but we will maintain a good humidity level and will manage all other conditions to provide a highly suitable environment for this plant.
It’s an eastern, west, northern, or any window plant as it needs bright and indirect light. Make sure that light is not too bright and dark so plants will get medium-filtered light, so a window is the best place. Make sure that sun rays are not allowed to reach the plant.
In the case of low light conditions, plant growth will be affected and new leaves will be weaker, while bright light conditions can change the color of leaves which can be dishearting.
As a normal houseplant, you must follow the same process which we do for other houseplants. Like, let the soil dry before watering and a few others. It will prevent your plant from overwatering but you must need focus on plant needs while watering. Here are some steps:
- Water when the soil looks dry
- Don’t do overwater
- Filtered or rainwater is recommended
- Don’t allow the water to stay in the pot
- Remove all of the standing water from the pot and don’t let it stop in the pot
Overwatering will cause a major root rot problem and it will kill your plant, so stay sensitive while watering any of your houseplants.
Normal houseplant humidity is suitable for such plants and places it near other philodendron plants so you will not face humidity problems.
