What you need to know before buying a plant
From soil to sunlight, there are a few things you should know about any plant before you buy it. Plants require certain environments in order to grow, so it’s important to know what they are before buying. For example, succulents need lots of light but little water while houseplants need at least four hours of sunlight per day. In addition to making sure you have all of your plant’s environmental needs met, you also need to make sure that any plants have not been treated with anything toxic (such as pesticides). Whether or not your plant has been treated can be found on its tag – if there is no tag, don’t buy it!

What else should I look for when buying plants?
If you’re looking for a new plant for your home, you might be nervous about which one to pick. There are plenty of things to keep in mind, from size, color and style to how fast it grows or if it needs a lot of water. You should also ask whether there are any known pests in your area that will attack certain plants. And if your goal is to maximize curb appeal when summer comes around, look into variegation—plants with streaks of white or green among leaves in other colors. Bright pink leaves on a green background make for an eye-catching alternative to traditional flowers.
How do I make sure it looks good after purchase?
When transplanting a Philodendron, it is important to always use a soil type that drains very well. Most importantly, if you are repotting your plant for the first time, use sterilized soil to avoid introducing any bacteria into your plant. Since Philodendrons grow from a rhizome, it is essential that you make sure that its new container has sufficient drainage holes or spaces so as not to drown its roots. Once you have acquired an appropriate pot for your plant, fill it with enough potting soil so that when you set your rhizome in its place it is level with or just slightly above the soil line. Make sure not to bury too deep as well because as mentioned previously, Philodendrons like their roots in airy environments.
How does this plant grow in my home?
Philodendrons are from tropical regions, so they like moist environments. If you don’t already have a natural space in your home that provides humidity (such as an unheated bathroom), set a humidifier next to it. As for sunlight, most philodendrons can take full sun to part shade. But if you live in an area with limited sunlight during winter months, place it near a bright window where it gets no direct light but does get reflected light. Here are more tips on keeping your plant healthy!
How often do I water this plant?
The Philodendron Caramel Marble highly variegated top cutting requires a lot of water. Water it every day except for when it rains, then make sure to give it more than enough water. To be safe, you can get a rain gauge to check how much rain your area gets. There’s no exact amount that’s right for everyone; some people will only need to do an inch of watering a week while others may need more than an inch in a single day. One good way to tell is by seeing if the soil has any moisture in it.
How often do I fertilize this plant?
Since you have a large plant, every two weeks, or a high-phosphorous fertilizer that is higher in nitrogen. For example, use Fertilome’s Granular Pintos Plus with 6-8-8 NPK. It’s a 24% slow release phosphorus supplement with low nitrogen. It will work just fine. This should be mixed into your soil prior to planting your Philodendron Caramel Marble highly variegated top cutting or any other plants (including small plants). You can also use organic fish emulsion as an organic fertilizer since it is both high in nitrogen but also contains phosphorus and potassium.

Understanding how to tell if a plant is sick will help ensure it’s kept in optimum health. While you don’t need a Ph.D in Botany, there are a few easy things to look for when trying to figure out if your potted plants are sick or simply receiving less-than-ideal care. Here are just a few common plant ailments that can be easily avoided with proper care
When should I prune my plant and how do I prune it correctly?
Philodendrons are typically heavy feeders, so they need to be fertilized regularly. When to prune them depends on whether you’re pruning for size or shape or both. For example, if you want a full-sized Philodendron but you don’t have a large pot for it, prune it back when it’s young until it fills out your container. If you want a tree-like Philodendron, wait until late winter or early spring to prune it for shape and give it time to grow before bringing in new growth from any branches that may have broken off during winter.
Can I give my plant as a gift to someone who loves plants?
Yes! Philodendrons are one of our most popular plants, because they’re incredibly easy to take care of. They don’t need a lot of direct sunlight, just some indirect sunlight during spring and summer. Water your philodendron once every 7–10 days (depending on how hot it is in your house or apartment), and you should be good to go!
