Floral Greens Care: Keep the water in the vase of your Split Leaf
Philodendron fresh. Replace the water every 3 days with cool water keeping
the water level near the top of the vase.
Re-cut 1/2" from
the base of each Monstera stem under water using a sharp
with each water change. Remove any foliage that may become
submerged after re-cutting.
Variety note: The
"Split-leaf" Philodendron has been a popular house
plant since the early 60's. Recently it has made its
way into the floral trade as a large floral green. Philodendron monstera
is used in tropical
arrangements as a background or around the base of a large
arrangements. I've also seen the leaves used as a placemat at
tropical themed weddings. Philodendron Monstera leaves are available in 3
sizes, small, medium, and large. They can be purchased by the leaf
or by the bunch
Add a commercial floral preservative such as AquaPlus or
FloraLife to the vase that contains your Philodendron Monster with each water change. Floral preservative helps to prevent
bacterial growth, control water clouding, and feeds your foliages insuring a longer vase
If you run out of commercial flower preservative you can
make your own fresh cut flower food mix 1/2 teaspoon of table sugar to a
quart of cold water... mixing thoroughly.
