Philodendron xanadu is a large, compact, easy to grow plant. The leaves of this beautiful, exotic-looking foliage plant can be as large as 30cm long and 20cm wide. Unlike many philodendrons, the xanadu is an upright plant, not a climber or vine. The best part is the older a Xanadu gets the better it looks.
- Light: Moderate indirect sunlight. Keep away from direct sunshine as it can scorch the leaves. Too much bright light causes the leaves to become pale ad bleached looking. Too little light causes the stems to become elongated as the plant stretches towards the light.
- Water a Xanadu thoroughly until the water drains out the drip holes in the bottom of the pot, and then allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering again. Leaves turn yellow if the soil stays too wet. A Xanadu grows more slowly in the winter and requires less water.
Not edible. Toxic if accidentally ingested.
