The Philodendron Xanadu, sometimes referred to as Philodendron Winterboum, is a large compact easy to grow plant. Each shiny green leathery leaf has 15-20 distinct lobes. A Xanadu is often wider than it is tall, reaching a height of 2-4ft. and a width of 3-5ft in ideal conditions. The leaves of this beautiful, exotic looking foliage plant can be as large as 16-18 inches long and 7-14 inches 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.
Potting Soil Mix
Every 12-13 Month
1. Select a shady or partially shady area to grow Xanadu philodendron, as the plant doesn't tolerate full sunlight or drought.
2. Soak the roots of new seedlings in a seaweed solution for about two hours before planting.
3. Xanadu philodendron prefers acidic or slightly alkaline soil of sandy, loamy or clay types. The plant thrives in moisture-retentive soil rich in organic matter.
4. Water in new plants by saturating the loose soil. After the initial watering, keep the soil of the Xanadu philodendron moist but not waterlogged at all times.
5. Apply a general-use liquid fertilizer to the plant bimonthly and a general-use slow-release fertilizer in spring. Follow the instructions on the fertilizer label.
1. Add beauty to the garden
1. Water a Xanadu thoroughly and then allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering again.
2. If growing indoors, keep the plant near natural light sources and take it outside to hose it off weekly.
3. Xanadu grows more slowly in the winter and requires less water.
1. Avoid Too much bright light causes the leaves of a Xanadu to become pale and bleached looking; too little and the stems of a Xanadu become elongated as the plant stretches towards the light.
