Caring Tips


The Philodendron Ring of Fire plant is not too fussy when it comes to its watering needs; it only has to be watered a few times in a month to mature. Due to its tropical nature, a slight delay in watering does not cause significant damage to the plant. Ideally, the Philodendron Ring of Fire plant should be watered every 7 to 9 days during the active growing seasons of summer and spring. However, in the dormant seasons, winter and fall, the watering routine changes significantly. During the resting months, water your Philodendron Ring of Fire plant after 2 to 3 weeks. The watering frequency mostly depends on the seasons; in the hotter months, the plant generally requires more water, whereas, in the cooler months, the plant does not grow much and so does not need too much water.


The Philodendron Ring of Fire plant can adapt to various light conditions. While it prefers bright, dappled sunlight, it can also do reasonably well in low light locations. However, a plant growing in the former surroundings is more likely to develop healthier parts than in the latter.
