Philodendron 'Xanadu' is a beautiful foliage plant which can be kept in bright rooms with direct or indirect light. This plant grows very compact and in the shape of a mushroom cap. Unmatched by any other big-leafed tropical, this foliage plant plays an important role in creating jungle-like exotic compositions in warm winter gardens. With its lax habit and tolerance of both sun and considerable shade, it works in foundation plantings under shade arbors, as a focal point of sequestered entries or as a standout against hot-colored walls of postmodern architecture. Will grow quite well in large containers.

The plant can be kept in a moderately lit condition. The soil should be kept moist at all times but not soggy. Water thoroughly, then allow the top 1-2 inches of soil to dry out between watering. The plant grows very compact and in the shape of a mushroom cap. It is a slow growing plant and grows to about 2' - 3' high and wide. Unlike almost all other Philodendron species its foliage and form actually improves as the plant develops. 'Xanadu' is a heavy feeder and should be liquid fed once a fortnight and once a term with a slow release fertiliser during the growing season.
