This plant enjoys moderate to bright indirect light. It will tolerate lower light conditions as well. If it receives a couple of hours of bright direct morning light that is fine but too much direct bright light will scorch the foliage.
We recommend allowing the soil to nearly completely dry out between waterings. Signs of it needing more water are drooping leaves. Signs of needing to be watered more often are drooping leaves and browning tips. You can tell if you are overwatering by the leaves yellowing and dropping. Overwatering will eventually lead to root rot which is never fun.
This is an easy to care for plant. We recommend fertilizing once a month in spring through summer with a diluted general house plant fertilizer. The Philodendron Brandtianum enjoys higher levels of humidity but will tolerate normal household humidity and even dryer than normal humidity levels. It wouldn't hurt to mist this plant occasionally though. To propagate this beauty simply take stem cuttings and place them in water or soil and it will easily root. We like to rotate this plant about once a month to promote even growth. Wiping down the leaves monthly will help with photosynthesis and keep the leaves nice and glossy.
