Philodendrons cover a huge variety of species (nearly 500!). They are easy-going, provided you keep them out of direct sunlight and allow enough time between waterings in order to prevent root rot.
The Squamiferum is a rare variety of self-heading Philodendron, meaning that it doesn't climb. Its most noticeable feature is its long hairy stems that support its lush green foliage.
Light: Medium to bright indirect sunlight will be best for the Squamiferum. They can also tolerate the more shady spots in your house too.
Watering: Water your Squamiferum once a week to ensure it grows healthily. Keep the soil moist but allow the top of the soil to dry out before re-watering. Philodendrons tolerate some degree of drought better than having its roots too wet.
Soil:Well-draining potting soil is perfect. If you prefer to make your own potting mixture, it will be one part perlite/coarse potting sand, one part loam soil.
Temperature: They love between 18-28°C, but can tolerate short periods of 12°c at a push. Avoid cold draughts.
Repotting: The Squamiferum will need repotting every 2-3 years in order to encourage growth.
