The Philodendron Esmeraldense is a rare aroid but has very low demands in terms of plant care. It only asks for indirect sunlight as direct sunlight can damage it and soil that is moist as well as well-drained. The plant also does not love staying in cold temperatures, so keeping it indoors with temperatures of 16ᵒC – 29ᵒC is the best idea. However we recommend above 20C
Dr. Croat found this species growing in lower mountain regions as well as the wet rain forests. He determined this plant to be terrestrial and epiphytic. Remember these while creating a perfect indoor environment for your Philodendron Esmeraldense.
