Most Philodendrons are native to the jungles of tropical America, and as such, prefer the medium light intensity they would have on the jungle floor. They will tolerate low light, but if there is too little light, the new leaves will develop smaller, and farther apart on the stem. On the other hand, direct sunlight will burn the foliage, and stunt the growth of the plant.

Keep the soil evenly moist, but allow it to dry out between waterings. Propagation is by stem cuttings, or air layering, or by offsets, depending on the type of philodendron grown.
