What other plant parents say
beautiful easy care plant. she grows quickly and has popped out Many new leaves since I got her. they start small but get big. i have her in a north facing window watering when the soil is fairly dry and humidify every day and she seems like she’s doing well
I love my philo hope! She’s absolutely beautiful and seems to be thriving even in the low light of my northeast facing apartment window. She’s been putting out giant leaves regularly and does well being watered once her soil gets dry. Such a beautiful, low maintenance plant.
