Plant Care Guide: Philodendron Hope

Philodendron Hope // Philodendron Selloum x hybrid 'Hope'

The Philodendron Hope offers up a tropical vibe with her stunning wavy leaves. She prefers her light not too bright but not too dark, making her a great option for spaces with a medium light level. But like most of our Fronds, this great gal can adapt to brighter light with a little extra watering and nutrition. Watering is also preferred on the moderate side, and a misting wouldn't go amiss. 

  Likes a little attention Bright or medium indirect sunlight is ideal
Not pet friendly if ingested Water once the top few cm of soil has dried out


Love notes

Keep your plant pal nourished and supported with a good quality plant food like We The Wild Grow Concentrate and We The Wild Support Pellets. These powerful plant essentials will keep your plants happy, strong and resilient, and will reward you with new growth a'plenty! 
These beauties thrive in humid conditions, so you can give them a mist every so often, and don't forget to wipe down those leaves when they're looking a little dusty. You can also spray with We The Wild Protect Spray every couple of weeks to keep leaves looking lush and healthy. 
Follow the recommended advise on watering above - if unsure, a Moisture Meter could be your secret weapon! This handy tool will show you exactly how dry your soil is to avoid any over or under watering fails. 
To ensure your new bestie gets enough drainage, we recommend keeping them in a nursery pot and displaying in a cover pot. If you do want to pot up your plant, make sure your decorative pot has a drainage hole and you've removed the plug. 
The Philodendron Hope is best suited to a moderate level of sunlight and water, but can tolerate much brighter light with a little extra TLC (up the watering frequency and give a little extra plant food). But hold steady on that watering can; this beauty will not do well if overwatered so be sure not to water until the top few cm of soil have dried out. Rotate her periodically to keep those lush leaves growing evenly.
