Philodendron 'White Knight'

 

Philodendron 'White Knight'

A variegated philodendron that tends to be rather slow growing (nodes are only a half inch apart creating a much more compact foliage appearance). Much like other philodendrons, White Knights enjoy bright, filtered light (minimise prolonged direct sunlight) and rich, moist soil. Wait till top 2” of soil is dry before watering again. Average wamth is required, not less than 55F in winter.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant in a location with bright, indirect sunlight. Position near to a window where direct sunlight cannot touch the foliage. If the plant gets too much light, the leaves will begin to turn yellow. If the stems are long and leggy without plenty of leaves, the plant is most likely to be receiving insufficient light.

 

Propagation

From Early Summer TO Late Summer

Cuttings require warm conditions. In summer, take stem cuttings or air layer the climbing varieties. With non-climbing varieties, shoots taken from the base of the stem can be used as cuttings.
