- In ideal conditions and with simple care, the Heart Leaf Philodendron grows new leaves rapidly and needs space to trail down and vine in its natural style.
Water your kokedama well about once a week, by submerging the whole moss ball (plant side up) in a basin/bucket of water. Allow to soak for 10-30 minutes and then allow to drain before hanging back up.
Allow the moss ball to almost completely dry out before watering again. It will be much lighter in weight and colour indicating that it is dry. You can test the weight of the moss ball right after watering, and then again five days later comparing the two, to help you to develop an effective watering routine.
- Using a moisture meter to test the moisture inside the middle of the moss ball is also a great tool to ensure that you are watering effectively.
Fertilise your Heart Leaf Philodendron Kokedama once a month during Spring, Summer and Autumn (the growing season) with a liquid plant food or fertiliser.
- You simply dilute the plant food in the water in the bucket/basin that you water your Kokedama with, as you would in your watering can with any other houseplant.
- The Heart Leaf Philodendron is easily propagated, simply take stem cuttings with nodes and root them in water or soil.
- The Heart Leaf Philodendron Kokedama will last between 1 and 2 years before it needs to be re-wrapped or re-potted. This can be done after 2 years of not changing the moss ball or when you notice roots growing through the moss.
- The Heart Leaf Philodendron is toxic to pets and children, so please keep out of reach.
