Deja Vu (Philodendron)

Plant Care Instructions*

Info: 

Philodendron Deja Vu is a unique philodendron in that it self-heads instead of growing long vines, and has a very unique "serrated" leaf. New foliage will start out with smooth leaf margins and steadily develop its signature jagged edge as the leaf matures. It is one of the easiest to grow members of the Philodendron family.

Plant Care*:

Temperature
Room temperatures that average 65-75ºF (18-24ºC) and no lower than 60ºF (15ºC). Avoid drafts and sudden temperature changes.

Light
Philodendron Deja Vu Plants thrive in the low light conditions indoors, living with just fluorescent light. They can handle some bright, indirect light too, but too much light will cause browning.

Watering
Philodendron Deja Vu Plants does like to dry out between watering. It does not like to stay wet or sit in water. Plants that are watered too often will not survive. If unsure, do not water. Philodendron can go weeks before being watered again.

Soil
Philodendron Deja Vu Plants prefer a very well-draining soil, and prefer to have dry conditions. Regular potting mix with sand mixed in works well for plants potted in containers, otherwise a cactus potting mix would work. The cactus potting mix already has sand and other ingredients to encourage drainage.

Fertilizer
Use a balanced liquid feed to encourage the foliage to look healthy and more attractive. Feed once a month from April - August.

Re-Potting
As the plant grows, you may have to get a wider pot so the roots and new stems have more room to grow.

Humidity
Since the plant loves moist areas, you can leave a tray under your pot with pebbles to hold moisture from the water that escapes from the hole on the bottom of the pot. You can also use a humidifier for this task.
