Philodendron Dean McDowell is a gorgeous hybrid of two of our favorite philodendrons: Pastazanum + Gloriousum. It is a glossy tropical that crawls along the top soil, and produces massive leaves. Under the right conditions, Dean McDowell is a very easy plant to grow. We encourage providing strong indirect light and humidity between 55% and 70% to keep this tropical to growing steadily and large.


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 to Partial 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.
