Philodendron Xanadu

rosemary mulchrone asked 10 years ago

I have a young philodendron xanadu plant which is not doing so well. Some of the leaves are a bit yellow at the edges and distorted. I fed it and watered it and gave it a slow release fertilizer tablet. I had it indoors but put it outside in a shady sheltered spot in the garden for the summer. I moved it into the glass house but perhaps it will be too sunny there. Any advice? Thanks.

Philodendron is strictly an indoor plant in this country. It needs good light, not direct sunshine, and to be kept just moist in the growing season and slighlty dry in winter.

The drawn leaves indicate that it was not getting enough light and you may have over-fed it too and caused the withering of leaves.
