Taking care of Philodendron Erubescens ‘White Knight’ involves providing the right conditions to ensure its health and vibrancy.

Here’s how:

  • Light: Place your White Knight Philodendron in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves. However, it can tolerate lower light conditions.
  •  Temperature: Maintain a warm and stable environment. Th White Night plants thrive in temperatures between 65-80°F. Avoid sudden temperature drops.
  • Humidity: The Philodendron White prefers high humidity. Mist the plant regularly or place it on a tray filled with water and pebbles to increase humidity levels.
  • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged—It’s important to water the plants thoroughly once the top inch of soil has become dry. Ensure proper drainage to prevent root rot.
  • Soil: Plant your Philodendron Erubescens in a well-draining, rich potting mix. A mix of peat, perlite, and pine bark works well. Repot if the plant outgrows its current container.
  • Fertilization: During the growing season (spring and summer), feed your Philodendron Erubescens ‘White Knight’ with a balanced liquid fertilizer once a month. Reduce fertilization during fall and winter.

  • Potting: Repot when the plant becomes root-bound, typically every 1-2 years, into a slightly larger pot. Read our blog post about this subject:

  • Pruning: Prune any yellow or damaged leaves regularly to encourage new growth and maintain the plant’s appearance.
  • Pest Control: Be vigilant for spider mites and aphids and use insecticidal soap or neem oil if there is an infestation.
  • Acclimatization: It is crucial for any plant, including the stunning Philodendron Erubescens ‘White Knight’. When you bring a White Knight into your home, it needs time to adjust to its new environment. Start by placing it in a location with indirect sunlight, allowing it to adapt to its surroundings gradually. Keep an eye on its leaves; if you notice any signs of stress, like drooping or yellowing, adjust its placement accordingly. During this period, be mindful of the plant’s watering needs, ensuring the soil remains consistently moist but not waterlogged. Patience is vital during acclimatization, as it might take a few weeks for the White Knight to settle into its new home fully.

  • Support:Provide a moss pole or trellis for support if you want your Philodendron to climb. This mimics its natural habitat and encourages healthy growth.
