Philodendron Calkins Gold is a beautiful plant with heart-shaped, glossy leaves that are bright golden-yellow in color. Here are some care tips for keeping your Philodendron Calkins Gold healthy:

  1. Light: Philodendron Calkins Gold likes bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Water: Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering. During the growing season (spring and summer), water your Philodendron Calkins Gold once a week. In the winter, reduce watering to once every 2-3 weeks. Be careful not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot.

  3. Soil: Use a well-draining potting soil mix. You can also add perlite or sand to the soil to improve drainage.

  4. Temperature: Philodendron Calkins Gold prefers temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C). It can tolerate temperatures as low as 50°F (10°C) and as high as 85°F (29°C).

  5. Humidity: Philodendron Calkins Gold likes high humidity. You can increase humidity by placing a tray of water near the plant or using a humidifier.

  6. Fertilizer: Feed your Philodendron Calkins Gold with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer once a month during the growing season.

  7. Pruning: Use clean, sharp scissors or pruning shears to remove any dead or diseased leaves. You can also pinch off new growth to encourage a fuller, bushier plant.

  8. Propagation: Philodendron Calkins Gold can be propagated by taking stem cuttings in the spring or summer. Let the cuttings dry out for a few days, then plant them in a well-draining potting soil mix. Keep the soil lightly moist and place the cutting in bright, indirect light until it has rooted.

By following these tips, you can keep your Philodendron Calkins Gold healthy and vibrant.
