Philodendron Black Cardinal prefers moderate indirect light but can tolerate moderate light conditions as well. The best color is typically displayed on the brighter end of the light spectrum. We recommend keeping your Philodendron out of the bright direct sun, which can burn the foliage over time.
This Philodendron should be allowed to dry out between waterings. It may be watered after the top two inches of soil are dry to the touch. Overwatering Philodendrons may lead to root rot. Underwatering may result in a slightly wilted appearance, but the plant should recover quickly once watered. We advise erring on the side of underwatering this plant rather than overwatering it.
Philodendron Black Cardinal is an easy to care for plant. Average household humidity levels should suffice but misting or a humidifier to increase humidity may benefit this plant. We recommend fertilizing every month during spring through summer with a diluted general houseplant fertilizer. Propagation by stem cuttings is possible but not recommended due to the compact growth habit and short stem of this plant.
