Philodendron 'Imperial Green'- Common Problems

Yellowing leaves

The most prevalent cause of yellow leaves on Philodendron Imperial Green is overwatering. The lowest leaves are usually the first to be affected. Yellow dots on the leaves may emerge, or the entire leaf may become yellow and die. The best way to solve this is by draining the soil of excess water, and watering moderately only when the top layer of soil feels dry. Yellow leaves can also be caused by too much light, acclimation, or cold stress, in which case you should move the plant to a more suitable spot.

Leaves Wilting 

Root rot is the most prevalent cause of Philodendron Imperial Green leaves wilting, and eventually death. Overwatering, poorly drained soil, improper size or kind of pot, insufficient light, or chilly temps can all contribute to this. Lighting, watering, and soil selection are all important aspects of keeping your plant healthy.

Brown leave tips and edges

Underwatering or low humidity are the most common causes of brown tips and leaf margins. This can be fixed with regular watering and misting. 

If root rot has established in, however, overwatering might result in brown leaf tips. Brown tips and leaf margins can also be caused by other kinds of stress, such as too much fertilizer, drafts, or cold stress. These can be solved by first drawing the excess water, and then repotting the plant in new soil.

Common Pests: Mealybugs, scales, spider mites
