Having velvety green leaves that grow in a heart shape, the Gloriosum is one of the most beautiful of all Philodendrons.
How to take care of your Philodendron Gloriosum:
The best place for a Gloriosum is in a place with bright indirect light. Try to avoid direct sunlight, this will make the soil dry out too quickly and burn the leaves. If the leaves start to appear dull your plant needs more light!
Philodendrons like high humidity so consider misting your plant to maintain high humidity levels. The best moments to water your Gloriosum is when the top 2 cm of the soil are dry, this is to avoid root rot.
Most common issues with the Philodendron Gloriosum:
This can be a symptom of overwatering. These plants like water and a high humidity but the soil should always remain damp, not wet. Make sure you discard any excess water as this plant does not like to have ''wet feet''.
Brown edges on the leaves:
Low humidity and dry soil can cause the leaves to slump and start to have brown spots at their edges, usually the leaves will turn completely yellow after this stage. Misting the leaves of your Philodendron can help a lot with this issue but if you don't have time for this maybe a pebble tray is more for you!
