Philodendron Campii 'Lynette' is a special species of philodendron, valued for its bright green leaves with deep veins. The plant belongs to the arum family (Araceae) and is a cultivated form. Philodendron campii 'Lynette' is known for its compact growth habit and is well suited for smaller spaces as it does not get too sprawling. Still, it can reach over a meter in diameter!
Light requirements: Place Philodendron Campii 'Lynette' in a spot with bright, but not direct sunlight. Too much direct sunlight can burn the leaves, while too little light can stunt growth. A location near a bright window or use of artificial plant light is optimal.
Temperature and humidity: This philodendron grows best at average room temperatures between 18 and 24 degrees Celsius. It tolerates normal humidity, but slightly increased humidity can promote growth. Regularly spraying the leaves or placing a humidifier near the plant can help increase humidity.
Watering: Keep the substrate of Philodendron Campii 'Lynette' slightly moist, but avoid waterlogging. Water the plant when the top layer of soil has dried slightly. Make sure the pot has a drainage hole to allow excess water to drain away. Philodendrons are relatively tolerant of occasional dry spells, but consistent watering is recommended.
Soil and fertilization: We recommend a well-drained, humus-rich potting soil. A mixture of humus, perlite and coco substrate can provide good drainage. During the growing season, you can use a balanced liquid fertilizer for houseplants every few weeks to provide the plant with the necessary nutrients.
Care and growth: Philodendron Campii 'Lynette' grows relatively slowly and usually maintains its compact size. Remove dead leaves regularly to keep the plant healthy. If necessary, you can also propagate the plant by dividing the roots.
