    • The Philodendron campii, also known as the Velvet-leaf Philodendron, is a tropical plant native to Ecuador. It is an attractive vine with velvety, heart-shaped leaves that can be grown indoors as a houseplant in the UK. Here are some care instructions to help you keep your Philodendron campii healthy:

    • Light requirements: Place your Philodendron campii in bright, indirect light. It thrives in bright, filtered light but should be protected from direct sunlight, especially during the hottest part of the day. An east or west-facing window is ideal.

    • Temperature: Philodendron campii prefers temperatures between 18°C and 24°C. It can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures, but avoid exposing it to temperatures below 15°C. Keep it away from cold drafts or sudden temperature changes.

    • Humidity: This plant appreciates higher humidity levels. You can increase humidity by placing a humidifier nearby or by placing the pot on a tray filled with pebbles and water. Regular misting of the leaves can also help maintain humidity.

    • Watering: Water your Philodendron campii when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure that the pot has drainage holes to prevent waterlogging. Water thoroughly, allowing excess water to drain away. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot. During winter, reduce the frequency of watering slightly, allowing the soil to dry out a bit more between waterings.

    • Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix that retains some moisture but doesn't become waterlogged. A mix of peat moss, perlite, and a small amount of orchid bark or coconut coir can be suitable.

    • Fertilizer: Feed your Philodendron campii with a balanced, water-soluble houseplant fertilizer every four to six weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Follow the instructions on the fertilizer packaging for the correct dilution and frequency.

    • Pruning: Trim back any leggy or yellowing stems to maintain a compact and attractive shape. You can also prune to control the size and encourage bushier growth. Prune during the active growing season for best results.

    • Support: Provide a trellis, moss pole, or other support for your Philodendron campii to climb on. This will help it grow upright and enhance its natural beauty.

    • Pest control: Monitor your plant regularly for pests such as aphids, spider mites, or mealybugs. If you notice any signs of infestation, treat them promptly with appropriate organic or chemical pest control methods.

    • Propagation: Philodendron campii can be propagated through stem cuttings. Take a cutting with a few nodes and place it in a well-draining potting mix. Keep the soil moist and provide warmth and indirect light. New roots should develop within a few weeks.
