Care of Your Blushing Philodendron


Whether your plant is a vine or a self-heading plant, it will need bright indirect light rather than direct sunlight, which could burn its leaves. 


Philodendron erubescens and its varieties grow best within the average household range of 60-to-85-degree F temperatures. 


Since Blushing Philodendron  is native to rainforest climates,  it prefers a humid environment with humidity levels of 50% or higher. Average household humidity is 30 to 50% and is at its lowest in the winter when the heat is on.
