White Wizard Philodendron Care

When it comes to houseplant care, the white wizard Philodendron could be ranked as intermediate in terms of complexity. All in all, its needs are fairly simple, but finding the perfect balance in your home to ensure that this tropical plant produces plenty of stunning, variegated foliage can be tricky for lots of growers—especially if you’re a beginner. Here’s what you need to know about caring for the white wizard Philodendron indoors.

Tip: White wizard Philodendrons are climbing vines and will produce larger, more impressive foliage if they are given a moss pole or trellis to climb.

Light: To encourage the most vigorous growth and the best variegation, the white wizard Philodendron should be placed in a location that receives several hours of bright, indirect light. Variegated plants require more light than their non-variegated counterparts since their leaves have less chlorophyll, so while many Philodendron varieties can tolerate low-light conditions, this hybrid is not one of them. At the same time, harsh sunlight can easily damage this plant’s delicate leaves, so avoid direct sun where possible.

Soil: Like most Philodendrons, white wizard Philodendrons do best in rich, well-draining potting mixes. A mixture of equal parts indoor potting soil, perlite, and orchid bark mix is nutrient-dense and well-draining while still retaining some moisture. Plus, it’s easy and affordable to make yourself. Try making a big batch so you have some of this potting mix on hand whenever one of your Philodendrons needs to be repotted.

Water: White wizard Philodendrons are sensitive to overwatering and should be allowed to dry out slightly between waterings. Wait until the top 50% of the potting mix is dry and then water thoroughly, allowing any excess water to drain from the pot’s drainage holes.

Temperature and Humidity: These tropical plants are not cold-tolerant and prefer consistently warm conditions. This makes them ideal houseplants as they thrive in average household temperatures. While white wizard Philodendrons also grow well in average household humidity levels, they will thrive if provided with some added humidity. Try placing a humidifier nearby or growing your plant on a small pebble tray. Alternatively, naturally humid rooms like the bathroom or laundry room are great locations for this tropical plant.
