Philodendron 'Atom' is a low maintenance houseplant with pleasingly wavy leaves. These Philodendron only require bright, indirect light and weekly waterings. Do not let the soil sit dry. With extra humidity, your plant will really take off.
Philodendron grow very well outdoors, but they are not winter hardy and should be brought inside once temperatures dip below 55 degrees. Spring through Fall, keep your Philodendron in Full Shade and make sure it is not receiving any hot, direct sun. Water once your plant has had a chance to dry out, usually about every 4-5 days outdoors with moderate temperatures. During periods of extreme heat, you may need to water your Philodendron every 2-3 days.
