Fertilizer/ feed for the plant:A well balanced fertilizer every fifteen days in its main growing season – summer months, and a rich compost mix potting medium while potting or repotting and its set for a long haul.
Repotting : An easy to maintain plant that you will have to repot once the roots start growing out of the current pot. Choose a pot slightly larger than the older pot when repotting.
Propogation : The easiest family of plants to propagate, the philodendrons can be easily propagated by stem cuttings both in soil and in water.
1. Why are the tips of my Philo plant leaves turning brown? What can I do?
Leaf tips will brown if water at any point is inconsistent, or too much. Set a watering schedule and stick to it and ensure that the soil is moist at all times but not soggy.
2. What are the leafless brown growths coming off of my Philodendron?
These are called aerial roots and are totally normal. In nature, these are what help give support to the plant and allow it to climb and reach more light. The roots will not damage walls or surfaces, and you can always prune them if they get unruly.
3. My Philodendron has gotten way too big. What can I do?
Prune it back! These guys are very hardy and can handle a good trim. You can also train your Hope to grow whichever way your heart desires by using stakes and ties.
Light Requirements :The Philo Selloum has striking finger like leaves that lend a beautiful tropical vibe to any home. Place it in a well-lit corner of your home and let it take over.
Locations : When small, it looks great as table top plants and also as a part of a plant cluster. The selloum is also a great addition to bedrooms.
Styling/decor tip :Plant it in beautiful ceramic pots, either metallic or monchrome, and let the plant become the talk of the town.

In general, house plants will thrive when they are fertilized spring through fall. Fertilize once a month with an organic houseplant fertilizer, following the package instructions for dilution and administration.
For larger floor plants, we suggest repotting every 18-24 months. Choose a potting vessel 2”- 4” larger in diameter but don’t choose a pot much larger than the previous as this could drown the plants roots. If you prefer to maintain the current size of your plant, repot into the same vessel, providing new soil and trimming away some roots and foliage. Spring or summer is the ideal time to repot as the plant is at its strongest.
Philo Selloum has large, frond-like leaves that present from a single main stem. In case of an overgrown plant, the main stem can be cut back. This would in effect stop that main stem from growing. Cutting back individual leaves on this plant merely removes the leaf which will most often not grow back. Pruning should be reserved for taking care of overgrowth or removing portions of the plant that die back. Remove leaves only as they die back or become unsightly. To shape a Hope, methods such as staking are more effective than pruning.
