Philodendron Melinonii Care Tips: Basics to Know to Grow

You can check whether or not your plant needs watering with the “Finger Dip Test” where you just stick your finger into the soil till the second knuckle. If it comes out dry, then it’s time to water your plant. But if it comes out with moist soil sticking to it, then your plant doesn’t need any extra water. If you can’t figure out when to water your plants, you can also make use of Ugaoo’s Sustee Watermeter . This device will tell you when it’s time to water your plants - turning white when the plant needs water and staying blue when the plant is perfectly watered.

4. Soil

This big leaf Philodendron requires rich, well-drained, and well-aerated soil. For this, you can use Ugaoo’s Potting Mix and Perlite, a combination of which allows for appropriate and adequate drainage and aeration, giving the plant enough breathing space to grow properly.
