My Fat Boy Philondendron thinks he is a succulent. It requires infrequent watering to become this beautiful- look at that leaf popping again! After Greg, I am never again afraid to overwater him - and he thrives! #FatBoy #Actslikeasucculent #SucculentSquad #CactusClique And for curtsy, final picture of a real succulent who was almost dead before Greg.
5ft to light, indirect
8” pot with drainage
Last watered 4 days ago
Awesomesauce! Side note, fat boy might be ready for a bigger pot (but check the roots to be sure)
@Shaubplantshack how does the root look when ready? I have this nice big selfwatering pot from Ikea i will use om either fat bot or my pony tail palm( though that one is not prioritized.
@Mjaubeibi40 when it’s ready for a new not the roots will look something like this picture. To check the roots you will need to pull it from the pot and actually take a peek.
This particular plant was SUPER pot bound. So it doesn’t need to be this extreme but something close.
@Shaubplantshack checked mine - still plenty of dirt and room to grow in that pot :) I know they grow fast out of their pots. Maybe next year!
Happy to hear Fat Boy is doing so well. I guess some plants are frequently thirsty. πŸ˜†
