Philodendron billietiae pronounced “bili ətiā" is a hemi-epiphytic species of plant native to Brazil, Guyana, and French Guiana. A relatively recent discovery in 1995, P. billietiae is known especially for its distinctive orange-yellow petioles and wavy, ridged leaf edges.

Care

Light: Philodendrons do well in a range of light conditions. They prefer moderate to bright indirect light, but can tolerate shadier lighting conditions as well. Avoid direct sunlight.

Water: Water well and let soil dry out almost completely.  Your plant will tell you when it is thirsty with dull or droopy leaves, yellowing leaves, or the soil starts to detach from the edge of the pot.

Temperature/Humidity: Average to warm household temperatures from 18-28°C and short periods down to 12°C at an absolute push. Avoid cold draughts. Comfortable in average household humidity but will thrive with higher humidity.

Soil/Repotting: A chunky well draining mix consisting of orchid mix, perlite, bark, and organic matter. 

Care Tips: Most philodendrons are epiphytes and will thank you with big leaves if you provide them a moss pole to climb.  Wipe leaves with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust.  Feed with Kelpy Plant Food or Plant Vitamins Thrive.

*Philodendrons are toxic to cats and dogs. Do not consume*


Philodendrons were part of NASA clean air study and found effective in improving indoor air quality by removing formaldehyde.
