Philodendrons, in general, are an easy win in our book. They are very green, full plants that are also easy to care for. What’s not to like? The Philodendron Lickety Split hybrid, however, feels a little extra special. One particularly interesting aspect of this plant is how the leaves are not uniform. Each new leaf that grows is a little different than the others, so as your plant grows, it will even transform.
Philodendron Lickety Split plants are great air purifying plants.
Plant Diameter: Sizes vary.
Light: Your Philodendron Lickety Split prefers bright, indirect light—placing it near an east or south facing window is ideal. It will, however, survive in lower light and the leaves will turn a darker green. Direct sun or too much light will burn or fade the leaves.
Water: Water your plant when its soil becomes dry to a depth of 1-2 inches. Water the plant until water flows into the saucer, then pour out any excess. Don’t allow the pot to stand in water, as this will cause root rot. During the winter, water less often, keeping the soil barely moist.
Humidity: This plant has thinner leaves than many of its relatives and requires more humidity to flourish. Mist your plant regularly especially during the drier winter months.
Fertilization: Fertilize monthly during the spring and summer with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength. If light levels are high, increase to bi-weekly feeding. Too much plant food can cause excess salt to build up in the soil which can result in leaf burn.
Pet Toxicity: Philodendron leaves are toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will result in swelling of the lips and tongue, and stomach irritation with possible vomiting.
