  5. Humidity: Philodendron Scandens Pictus 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 Scandens Pictus 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 prune your Philodendron Scandens Pictus to control its size and shape.

  8. Propagation: Philodendron Scandens Pictus 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.
