Grows best in partial shade conditions. Too much light can cause the older leaves to lose their characteristic bright green color and turn yellow.
Consequently, insufficient light will cause the stems to become leggy and exhibit stunting. Make sure your hope philodendron receives plenty of bright and indirect or filtered light.
This plant is one of the philodendrons that likes moist soil. The soil must not be wet or soggy as this will cause root rot.
Keep the soil moist by flooding the pot and letting excess water to drain. The surface should be dry to the touch before the next watering. During winter, keep the soil barely moist.
For optimum growth, Hope Philodendrons need to be in average to warm temperatures between 70-85oF. Because their leaves are thinner than other philodendrons, hope philodendrons will require humid environments. Misting occasionally during winter months will help with the drier air.
Hope Philodendron grows best in a rich, slightly alkaline soil. It should also be well-draining to prevent overwatering. They can grow in a 100% sphagnum peat moss or in a 1:1 peat-vermiculite or peat-perlite mix.
