Philodendron Florida Ghost Mint - RARE! Mature 6 Pot - EXACT Plant - Healthy!The Philodendron Florida ghost Mint is a very rare species that gets its name from how its leaves grow in. New leaves appear as white as a ghost before they mature to a natural green. The philodendron Florida ghost plant is an exotic species that's a hybrid of two plants in the Araceae plant family. This is NOT a starter plant! Caring For the Philodendron Florida Ghost Mint. Philodendrons are native to rainforests. This means they need indirect light native to their tree shaded forest habitat. The Philodendron Florida Ghost is no exception to this rule.
The philodendron Florida ghost plant needs a soil that can hold onto moisture, yet drain water well. A good mixture for this plant contains bark, charcoal, and peat. These organic matters are great for. Peat moss, made of decomposing organic material and sphagnum moss is also a good option for soil since it is light and holds onto just the right amount of water. The ideal soil pH for this plant is between 5 and 8.
This means the soil is fairly neutral, making peat moss a perfect solution to try out. Despite its rare and elusive nature, the philodendron Florida ghost is actually a fairly low-maintenance plant. You'll only need to water the plant about once a week. It's bad for this plant to have too dry of soil, but also bad for it to have too wet of soil. Make sure that the top two inches of soil are dry before you water your ghost plant.
Simply stick your finger in the soil to check. This average of watering once a week changes as the months get colder. During winter, you'll only need to water your plant three times the whole season. Still check the soil regularly, though. Similar to the rainforest environment, the philodendron Florida ghost plant needs temperatures of around 65F (18C) to 95F (35C).This makes this plant a great option for an indoor house plant. Since this plant doesn't fare well in cold weather, it's best to keep it away from the air conditioning. In an ideal scenario, the philodendron Florida ghost plant would have high levels of humidity. This would most closely mimic its natural environment of the misty rainforest. However, it only needs an average level of humidity to survive.
If you live in a dry climate, consider a humidifier or a pebble tray for your plant. A pebble tray is a shallow tray, filled with pebbles and water just enough to cover the rocks. Place your plant on this tray and it will naturally create humidity around your plant. This gives the illusion of humidity, but actually only leads to over watering and if overdone, cases of fungal and bacterial infections in the plant.
