Philodendron hibrido felix, also known as Philodendron 'Felix', is a rare undescribed hybrid Philodendron. It is a beautiful plant that has large, long leaves with a shiny texture and a dark green color. The leaves can grow up to 12-15 inches long and have white veins running throughout.
To care for Philodendron hibrido felix, you can follow similar care guidelines as other Philodendron plants:
Light: This plant prefers bright, indirect light, but it can tolerate lower light levels. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves.
Water: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water it when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. During winter, reduce the frequency of watering.
Humidity: This plant prefers higher humidity levels, so it's a good idea to provide it with some extra moisture. You can mist it regularly or place it near a humidifier or a pebble tray filled with water.
Temperature: This plant prefers warm temperatures between 65°F and 85°F (18°C to 29°C). Avoid exposing it to cold drafts or temperatures below 55°F (13°C).
Soil: Use well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. You can use a potting mix that is specifically formulated for tropical plants, or you can make your own mix using equal parts of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite.
Fertilizer: Fertilize your Philodendron hibrido felix once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) using a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer. Avoid fertilizing it during the winter months.
Pruning: Prune your Philodendron hibrido felix to control its size and shape. Pruning can also help to encourage new growth and prevent leggy growth. Use clean, sharp pruning shears to make clean cuts just above a leaf node.
Propagation: You can propagate your Philodendron hibrido felix using stem cuttings. Take a stem cutting that is 4-6 inches long and has at least two nodes. Remove the lower leaves and place the cutting in a pot filled with moist potting mix. Keep the soil moist and place the pot in a bright, indirect light until the cutting has rooted.
Pests and Diseases: Philodendrons are relatively resistant to pests and diseases, but they can sometimes be affected by spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects. You can treat these pests with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Overwatering can also lead to root rot, so be careful not to let your Philodendron hibrido felix sit in waterlogged soil.
