Watering a Philodendron plant is much like watering most Philodendron plants. You want to keep the soil moist. You don’t want to drench the soil in water and you don’t want it to dry out. Over-watering your Philodendron is as dangerous as under-watering it.
When you over-water, your plant is susceptible to different diseases. This includes the horrible root rot we discussed earlier. But root rot isn’t the only horrible condition your plant can go through. The other conditions are only a little better when it comes to planting damage. The only exception is during winter. When the cold months hit, you can let all the soil dry out before you water the Philodendron.
The best soil for Philodendron is 100% peat moss or a mix of 200% peat and perlite. For a plant, you need well-draining soil. This type of soil ensures excess water drains through the plant pot. This prevents all that extra water from building up in the soil.
