Potting mixture: Potting Soil + Cocopeat + Organic manure/Vermicompost at equal parts and 5% perlite.
Water: Let the potting mixture dry half way between watering. This plant is an epiphyte and can handle drying out. Water the plant once in 3-5 days depending on the light intensity. Over watering results in root rot of the plant.

Absolutely loved the plant and the packaging was excellent. Would definitely recommend plant wagons.
Waiting for more collection... And looking forward to order ☺️
I hadn't found a philodendron pluto anywhere else, and was pleasantly surprised to discover it here. Plant Wagons packaged it perfectly - the package took 3 days to reach me and it was in pristine condition. Love this plant!
This plant was packed well, with lots of support for the journey and to ensure that the soil doesn't fall out during shipment. Despite being in transit for more than 3-4 days, the plant arrived relatively healthy and is pushing out new growth in a matter of weeks.
The staff at Plantwagons was very concerned and helpful, making sure all the plants I ordered reached me safe and sound.
Waiting for them to add new plants to the collection so that I can order again!
