Standing Philodendron Plant Care Cheat Sheet

Upright/Standing Philodendrons come in a lot of shapes, leaf sizes and textures.

Lighting: This plant can handle 2-3 hours of direct sunlight touching the foliage. Philodendrons that are upright can prefer bright indirect light. To maintain the plant's size, a minimum of 200 FC is required, but for good growth, you want around 400 FC.

Watering: This plant likes to dry out at least 2/3 of the way between waterings. It prefers to dry most of the way out, and the leaves will begin to droop when they are ready to be watered.


This quick cheat sheet is meant to give you tips and tricks for how to best care for your plant. All of the information above is based on my personal experience and advice with houseplants and the lighting requirements are a reference from Daryl Chang of House Plant Journal.

*FC is lighting measured in Foot Candles and requires a light meter to get an accurate reading.
