What Is Philodendron Lynamii?
The Philodendron lynamii is a low-maintenance plant that is native to the rainforests of Tarapoto and Peru. This Philodendron lynamii crawler has large heart-shaped, dark green, and deep pink leaves. The pink leaves change to green when they reach maturity and they can grow up to 10 inches long.
Philodendron Lynamii Care
The Philodendron lynamii does not require special plant care requirements for it to grow healthy. The plant can grow well with minimum attention though neglecting it for a long period can affect its well-being.
– Water Requirements
You should water Philodendron lynamii twice or thrice a week in summer as the potting mix dries quickly due to too high temperatures. In winter, reduce the watering to once after two or three weeks. Allow the top two-inch potting mix to dry between waterings. You can also water your Philodendron when half of the potting soil is dry as the plant is relatively drought tolerant.
The Philodendron lynamii has thick leaves because it stores some water in them. So, the plant can tolerate underwatering but not for an extended period. You should avoid overwatering your beauty to reduce the risk of root rot. The potting mix should drain water easily to avoid waterlogging conditions.
We recommend that you use lukewarm water that is chlorine-free when watering your plant. Cold water can slow down the growth of your Philodendron lynamii. To get rid of the chlorine in tap water, place the bowl filled with water outside while open for at least 24 hours. The chlorine can cause yellowing and browning leaves and edges, respectively.
