The ideal temperature for this plant is 60-75ºF/16-24ºC. Temperatures above and beyond this could cause the plants growth to slow down.
This plant is relatively durable and it can thrive in many different conditions but it is more suited to bright light but not direct sun. It can, however, cope with low light.
Through Spring and Summer the soil should be kept moist but during winter the soil should be allowed to dry out between waterings.
It requires a chalky, sandy soil that drains quickly. A mix of 2 parts peat and 1 part perlite and maybe a bit of added sand is a good choice.
When the roots compact and form a tight ball it is time for the plant to be repotted into a planter that is around 2-3 inches larger. Repotting should take place during the latter part of winter or spring before the plant begins to grow new leaves.
The Philodendron Scandens is a plant that grows very quickly and should be fed every month from during spring and summer especially when new leaves are growing. During the winter, feeding can take place every other month using a basic houseplant food.
This species is quite tolerant of dry conditions. During summer it's good practice to mist the leaves.
The best time to take stem tip cuttings is during spring or early summer. Place the stem in water or moist soil and they should root quite easily.
