Propagation of Philodendron rugosum is typically done through stem cuttings, which should be taken from healthy, mature plants.

  1. Light: Philodendron rugosum prefers bright, indirect light, but it can also tolerate low light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves.
  2. Water: Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Water your plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Be sure not to let the soil dry out completely, as this can damage the plant.
  3. Humidity: This plant prefers high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves with water or placing a tray of water near the plant. Alternatively, you can use a humidifier to maintain the required level of humidity.
  4. Fertilizer: Fertilize your Philodendron rugosum with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every two to four weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce fertilization during the winter months.
  5. Temperature: This plant prefers temperatures between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 26°C). Avoid exposing it to temperatures below 55°F (13°C) or above 90°F (32°C).
  6. Soil: Use well-draining, porous soil that retains moisture but does not become waterlogged. A mix of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite can work well.
  7. Pruning: Prune your Philodendron rugosum as needed to maintain its shape and size. Remove any dead or damaged leaves, and trim back any overgrown stems.

By following these care tips, you can help your Philodendron rugosum thrive and grow into a healthy and beautiful plant.
