Philodendron bipinnatifidum Winterbourn is commonly known as Xanadu or cut-leaf philodendron. It is a good looking plant, with shiny green, leathery leaves, each with multiple lobes. Unlike other philodendron, this is not a climber, instead it grows in a mounded shape on a thick woody stem, often becoming wider than it is tall.
A compact, low maintenance choice for homes and offices, that will help purify your air.
Light: Best in moderate to bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight as this may cause the leaves to fade.
Water: Water well then allow the top half of the soil to dry out before re-watering. Will tolerate some degree of drought better than having its roots too wet.
Temperature: Average to warm household temperatures from 18-28°C and short periods down to 12°C at an absolute push. Avoid cold draughts.
Feed: Apply a weak solution of liquid fertiliser two or three times during the growing season. Do not feed during the winter. View Plant Nutrition
