How to Care For a Prince of Orange Plant


Philodendron plants can be toxic for children and animals. Even nibbling one may result in vomiting, rash, or other internal damage.

Be careful where you put this plant; too much sunlight could burn its leaves and damage its condition.

How to Care

An elegant addition to any home, a Prince of Orange Plant brings tropical vibes into any space it graces. Easy care requirements allow this vibrant blooming beauty to flourish indoors with proper lighting, temperature, watering, and fertilization requirements met.

This plant requires bright indirect lighting, making an east or west-facing window an ideal spot. Direct sunlight should be avoided to avoid leaf burn. For optimal growth conditions, rotate your plant regularly so all surfaces receive equal light exposure.

Prince of orange plants are generally not susceptible to disease and make an excellent addition to interior landscaping designs. If, however, you notice their leaves begin to yellow or fade up, this could indicate issues in the soil – For added peace of mind, try applying mulch around their base to retain moisture levels and increase the longevity of this beautiful addition to any home interior design scheme.

If your plant receives too much water, it could develop root rot. To assess this situation, insert your finger into the soil; if it feels dry to touch, water the plant, but beware not to overwater!

Overwatering can also leave your plant’s soil lacking oxygen, hindering its development. To avoid this scenario, make sure that you use porous potting soil that drains well.

A prince of orange plants needs moist soil that does not remain waterlogged. You should water this plant once weekly or as necessary – To avoid overwatering, it’s best to check with your hands first to determine whether the top inch has dried off before watering again.

Your prince of orange philodendron plant should also be fed once every month with general houseplant fertilizer that contains an equal balance of nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium as primary nutrients.

Watch for insects that might visit your plants, such as aphids, fungus gnats, and mealybugs. To protect yourself against them, regularly wipe down leaves and stems with a damp cloth or sponge.

Light Requirements

Philodendron hybrids thrive indoors as stunning focal points that add vibrant orange, apricot, and yellow leaves that complement any decor style – traditional or modern. Low-maintenance houseplants such as this Philodendron prefer indirect sunlight and frequent watering rather than high levels of fertilizers or regular pruning to keep looking their best!

Philodendrons are an excellent way to bring greenery into the home without taking up too much space or caretaking effort. Though these tropical plants can reach great heights and widths, Philodendron Prince of Orange stays compact at just over two feet. Furthermore, this plant’s leaves sprout directly from its core instead of spreading outward like other varieties.

As with other philodendrons, Prince of Orange plants require plenty of light to reach their entire colors and forms. Direct sunlight should be avoided as direct exposure can scorch its foliage and inhibit its growth – instead, an east-facing window offers optimal conditions.

Water your plants only when the top inch of soil feels dry before watering. Overwatering can lead to fungal or bacterial infections in the root zone, so aerating the soil beforehand ensures adequate drainage.

Prince of Orange leaves are broader and brighter in hue than Mccolley’s finale variety, so be careful to ensure it truly is this variety and not another variety with a similar appearance.

Philodendrons tend to slow their growth as the days become shorter in winter. If yours appears not to be expanding at all or producing only a few leaves each month, this may indicate it needs repotting, or more light may be required to promote its health and increase growth.

Temperature Requirements

As a tropical plant, the Prince of Orange thrives best in temperatures that mimic its natural environment. Warm temperatures (65-80degF) with adequate indirect sunlight help your Prince of Orange achieve lush foliage and rich feeder roots, while growth will slow considerably at cooler temperatures (below 60degF). To prevent drafty environments from dropping below this temperature threshold, resulting in your plant losing color or even withering and dying altogether, avoid placing in drafty spaces where temperatures might dip under 60degF as this will lead to discolored or discoloring leaves as this may happen sooner rather than later!

Prince of Orange Philodendron plants benefit greatly from direct sunlight. However, as tropical houseplants, they should not receive direct or harsh sunlight; rather they should be placed in an environment with bright but filtered lighting – for best results, set your philodendron in either a south or east-facing room where they receive about half an hour of direct sun in either morning or evening hours; avoid natural midday light as this will damage their leaves causing them to turn brown and die back prematurely.

This hybrid philodendron plant is less sensitive to light than some of its trailing relatives; however, it is still important to rotate it every few weeks to ensure even growth of all its fronds in all directions.

Like other tropical plants, the Prince of Orange Philodendron requires high humidity for optimal growth. An ideal relative humidity level would be at 50% or above; to meet this goal, try grouping it with other high-humidity tropical plants to share moisture throughout the air or using a humidifier at home or placing pebble trays filled with water beneath its pot as a way of providing this environment for your philodendron.

Philodendrons are drought-tolerant plants, but they do need to remain moist at all times. The ideal soil for your philodendron should be well-draining but not soggy; be sure not to overwater, as this will harm its root system. In addition, organic liquid fertilizer diluted with water may be added every week to feed these tropical beauties properly.

Water Requirements

This plant is native to tropical environments and requires warm, moist air. While it thrives indoors at comfortable household temperatures, drafty areas or extreme cold or frost could be lethal for survival. Normal growth slowing may occur during wintertime; bright indirect lighting could help its recovery.

The Prince of Orange stands out among Philodendron plants with its vivid orange leaves that emerge early, gradually changing into peach and yellow tones as it matures. This unique visual appeal makes the Prince of Orange stand out.

While Prince of Orange makes an ideal houseplant for year-round enjoyment, you should also plant it outdoors to take full advantage of its vibrant foliage. Hardy in USDA zones 9-11 and suitable for cool to warm outdoor temperatures; it should, however, be protected from frost or snow in temperate climates.

Plants with aerial roots require well-draining soil to thrive, as too much moisture can cause their hearts to rot if left in one area for too long. Allow the top two inches of soil to dry out before watering again, as too much liquid could drown its roots and limit oxygen flow.

If the Prince of Orange plant appears dehydrated, it could indicate that its soil or container is too dense or too small. Try switching out for one that drains well and fertilizing at half-strength once every month to see results.

Because Prince of Orange plants are epiphytic plants, they may become dusty. Wipe down its leaves regularly to remove dust accumulation; this is especially helpful if fungus or pest infestation has invaded their leaves. With clean leaves, they’ll have an easier time breathing.

When it’s time to repot your Prince of Orange plant, gently take steps to remove its current container before placing it into one with plenty of drainage holes and gently pressing down on its soil so no air pockets form.
