Philodendron ‘Little Hope' | Live Plant | Azucena Nursery

  • Botanical Name: Philodendron selloum
  • Common Names: Little Hope
  • Description: Little Hope produces deeply serrated, glossy leaves with a distinct split-leaf look. This houseplant is a vigorous, upright grower.
  • Philodendron 'Little Hope' is a popular cultivar of the Philodendron genus, known for its attractive foliage and ease of care. Here are some key features and care tips for this plant:

    1. Foliage: 'Little Hope' is valued for its dark green, heart-shaped leaves with a glossy appearance. The leaves have a somewhat elongated shape compared to some other philodendron varieties.

    2. Size: It is a relatively compact philodendron, making it suitable for smaller spaces. Typically, it grows to a height of around 1 to 2 feet.

    3. Light Requirements: Like most philodendrons, 'Little Hope' prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions, but its growth may slow down, and its foliage might become less vibrant. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

    4. Watering: Water the plant when the top inch of the soil feels dry. Philodendrons are relatively forgiving of occasional underwatering but can suffer if overwatered. Ensure good drainage in the pot to prevent waterlogged soil.

    5. Temperature and Humidity: 'Little Hope' thrives in typical indoor temperatures between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C). It prefers moderate to high humidity levels, but it can adapt to lower humidity conditions. To increase humidity, you can mist the leaves or use a humidity tray.

    6. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix with organic matter to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. A mix that's suitable for aroids or philodendrons is ideal.

    7. Fertilizing: Feed your Philodendron 'Little Hope' with a balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer). You can reduce or stop fertilizing during the fall and winter when growth slows down.

    8. Pruning: Regular pruning can help maintain the shape and size of the plant. Prune leggy or yellowing stems to encourage new growth.

    9. Pests and Diseases: Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests like aphids, mealybugs, and spider mites. If you notice any infestations, treat them promptly. Additionally, ensure good airflow around the plant to prevent fungal diseases.

    10. Propagation: You can propagate 'Little Hope' through stem cuttings. Place a cutting with a few leaves in water until roots form, and then transfer it to soil.

    Overall, Philodendron 'Little Hope' is a great choice for indoor plant enthusiasts, as it combines attractive foliage with ease of care. It can be an excellent addition to your collection of houseplants, adding a touch of tropical beauty to your home.
