Choose a well-drained area for this moderately drought-tolerant plant. Plant with a combination of top soil or organic peat moss mixed with composted cow manure added to the hole. You'll rarely have to trim a Xanadu - its clumping growth pattern forms an attractive cushion shape all by itself.
- Light Needs: Medium indirect light
- Watering Needs: Water a Xanadu thoroughly and then allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering again. A Xanadu grows more slowly in the winter and requires less water.
The lush and tropical Xanadu philodendron is an ideal small planting for homeowners who want little or no trimming. Xanadu philodendron forms a naturally mounded shape, a pillow of a plant with a delightfully different texture. The plant spreads out and leaves become more deeply divided as it matures.
