Philodendron Micans Care
Plus, an Easy Propagation Guide!
Provide your Philodendron Micans with bright, indirect light.
Don't let your Micans completely dry out, so water it when the top 1-2 inches of the soil is dry.
To avoid overwatering, always stick your finger into the potting mix to feel for moisture before watering.
Use a well-draining potting mix. (Even though it doesn't like to dry out, staying sopping wet could cause root rot!)
Provide your Philodendron Micans with additional humidity to help mimic its natural environment.
Provide your Micans with a moss pole so it can climb.
This also mimics its natural environment, helping it grow faster and larger!

Philodendron Micans is also known as the "velvet leaf philodendron" because of its velvet, shimmery, emerald-green leaves.
How to Propagate
Step by Step!
Identify a healthy vine with a few leaves and at least one node.
Use a pair of clean, sharp scissors to cut off the vine below a node.
The nodes are where leaves and roots grow from, and they are where the new roots will form.
A node must be included because...
Put the cutting in a jar of water. Make sure the node is under the water and the leaves are above the water.
Put the jar in bright, indirect light. Replace or refill the water as needed.
When the roots are 2-3 inches long, your cutting is ready to pot up!
Pot up your cutting into a well-draining potting mix. Water it and put it back in bright, indirect light.
And that's how to easily propagate Philodendron Micans!
Not too tough, right? Time to try for yourself!
