Add top soil or organic peat humus, mixed together with composted cow manure, to the hole when you plant.
Choose a well-drained area that doesn't stay overly wet or any philodendron will rot from too much moisture.
Water regularly but allow enough time for the plant to dry out a bit between waterings.
The only need for trimming a Hope philodendron is to remove a dead leaf or stem occasionally.
This is not a plant that should be cut back for size. Doing this is pretty much futile because of the way a philodendron grows (and doing so will spoil its good looks) so planning for ultimate size is important.
Fertilize 3 times a year - once each in spring, summer and fall - with a good quality granular fertilizer.
Plant 3 or 4 feet apart. Come out from the house 3 feet.
If you're planting near a walk or drive, come in at least 3 feet (more if you can) to give the plant room to grow wide without getting in the way.
Allow enough room between Hope and the plants near it...the large leaves may overlap other, smaller plants once the philodendron has begun to mature.
This is a very good plant for large containers - great for balconies, patios, even indoors.
