Philodendron Jose Buono – Best Care Hack

You might easily get fascinated by the vibrant leaves of Philodendron Jose Buono and might want to bring them home. Hey, let me alert you. These vibrant and giant plants are not that easy to care for.

But fortunately, they do not even belong to the high maintenance group of plants.

From my experience of growing Philodenfron Jose Buono, I daresay you can easily care for plants without much difficulty. However, you need to sneak a peek at your plant frequently and bliss it with the care requirements it implores.

To grow healthy and happy Philodendron, Jose Buono, you need to fulfill the following parameters.

1. Sunlight and Location

Philodendron Jose Buono adores ample sunlight though they can survive on medium light.

It is ideal for providing them with 6-8 hours of bright indirect sunlight. 

These Philodendrons grow in canopy canopy-covered with more giant trees in the tropical environment. Thus, their inclination to the instinctive environment makes them vulnerable to direct sun exposure.

The best location for Philodendron Jose Buono is an eastern-facing window or patio reflecting morning sunlight.

The prominent reason for detesting direct sunlight is that the variegated parts cannot enthrall sunlight.

Since the variegated parts play no roles in photosynthesis (the plant’s physiological process through which it produces energy), these parts do not function in absorbing light.

Like the plant detests extreme exposure to sunlight, it more reluctantly detests low light conditions.

In low light, plants cannot get sufficient light to conduct the photosynthesis process, which is the basis for a plant’s life.

Symptoms of Low Light

  • Reduction in photosynthesis rate. It forces more chlorophyll formation, thus causing loss of variegation.
  • Lack of plant energy causes stunted and dull growth.
  • Leaves start to droop and fall off to save plant’s energy
  • Leggy growth.
  • Discoloration of foliage.
  • If the lighting condition cannot be improved further, Chlorophyll cannot function and decrease in number.
  • Discoloration and yellowing of foliage
  • The plant produces small-sized leaf

Symptoms of Harsh Sunlight

  • Loss in variation as they cannot sustain higher intensity light
  • Browning of leaf’s edges
  • Yellowing and drying of leaves
  • High rate of transpiration (loss of moisture from leaves). It causes the curling of leaves to reduce the surface area for moisture loss.

Tips to Provide Adequate Sunlight

  • The eastern-facing window is the best. The northern-facing window also works well; however, keep them 1-2 feet away from the southern or western facing window to avoid prolonged afternoon shades.
  • You can use transparent and light drapes or curtains to block direct light from hitting the plant.
  • Use grow lights if the intensity of sunlight is low. It is sufficient to provide them with 8 hours of full-spectrum L.E.D. Lights or Flurosecnt light
  • As light intensity is low in winter, bring them outdoor in daylight or introduce them to artificial lights.
  • Avoid shifting your plant from a brighter location to a lower light location as it stresses the plant.
  • If you are keeping it outdoors, ensure to keep it under shades of trees or patio that reflect morning sunlight.

Pro Tip- If the plant does not receive balanced sunlight, it grows leggy and bends towards a single direction; the direction facing the light source. Also, it may tilt away from the central base. Thus, ensure to rotate your plant once every 1 or 2 weeks to obtain balanced growth.

2. Water Requirements

Like every other tropical plant, Philodendron Jose Buono loves consistently moist substrate.

The massive trees prevent the sun from hitting the soil in its natural environment. As such, the soil remains consistently moist.

Thus, you need to resemble the same environment indoors to better care for Philodendron Jose Buono.

It is ideal for watering your plant once a week during the growing season and twice or thrice a month during winter.

Though the plant is intolerant to drought, it is more unforgiving in overwatering. Waterlogged soil is a culprit to Philodendrons.

Symptoms of Watering Issues

Generally, both overwatering and underwatering show similar signs. However, differences exist.

An underwater Philodendron develops dry and crisp leaves and brown edges, while overwatered Philodendron develops limp and soft leaves.

All other symptoms are similar for underwatering and overwatering, listed below.

  • Discoloration; Yellowing and browning of leaves.
  • Stunted and dull growth
  • Wilting, drooping, and curling off leaves
  • In severe cases, leaves might fall off
  • Overwatering also invites root rot and foul order

Tips to Proper Watering

  • Establish a proper watering schedule. Reduce the watering frequency to half during the rainy and winter season.
  • Avoid excessively hot or cold water as it stresses the plant.
  • Avoid water that contains an excessive amount of salts.
  • Water the plant thoroughly as it washes off accumulated salts.
  • Using a moisture meter is the best way to avoid water issues.

  • You can also opt for self-watering pots.
  • Empty the saucer immediately after water gets collected.

Additional Tips- Insert your finger or a stick about 2-3 inches deep in the soil. If the soil feels damp, then leave it to dry for a couple of days. Water the plant only if the soil feels dry.

3. Warm Temperature

Tropical climatic condition is characterized by yearlong warm temperature. As Philodendron Jose Buono comes from a tropical environment,  it craves warm temperatures.

The ideal temperature for Philodendron Jose Buono is 55-80°F (13-27°C).

The plant is vulnerable below temperature 5o°F and above 80°F.

Temperature also has a direct role in nutrient and water absorption rates.

Why is it Necessary to Maintain Ideal Temperature for Philodendron Jose Buono?

First, let me share some good news with you. The general indoor temperature is around 65°F. Thus, maintaining an ideal temperature is not hard for your Philos.

A temperature below 50°F ceases the plant’s cellular activities. Also, low temperature causes water stored in cells to freeze, leading to the bursting of cells.

Further, low temperature also causes mechanical injuries and yellowing, drooping, and falling off leaves.

Similarly, a temperature beyond 80°F causes a high transpiration rate. To reciprocate excessive moisture loss, the plant adopts a defense mechanism of reducing its surface area. As a result, leaves curls, droop and fall off.

Besides, high-temperature fluctuation stresses the plant. All of these effects might kill your Philodendron Jose Buono.

Tips to Maintain Warm Temperature

  • Increase humidity around your plant when the temperature rises above 70° to reciprocate water loss.
  • Mist your leaves 2-3 times a week in the morning.
  • Avoid sunny locations as it doubles the problem of moisture loss from leaves.
  • Protect your plant in winters by providing insulation. You can add mulch like straw and dried grass as insulators on top of the soil.
  • A Frost blanket is another option for protection from cold.
  • Shift your plant to the greenhouse during winter.

Additional Insights – The research conducted on High Temperature Effect on Root Absorption delineates that high root temperature retards active nutrient transportation rate. Further, high root temperature causes low water uptake, growth depression, and color change in roots.

4. High Humidity

One of the determining features of tropical plants is their demand for high humidity. So is the case with Philodendron Jose Buono.

The ideal humidity requirement for Philodendron Jose Buono is above 60%.

Misting flowering plants

They grow around a humid range of 80% in the natural environment. However, on a brighter note, the plant can survive in humidity as low as 40% of the relative humidity.

More exciting about Philodendron Jose Buono is that your average room humidity is generally sufficient for them. However, I suggest you be on the safer side by maintaining the humidity at about 60%.

Low humidity in Philodendron causes high moisture loss from leaves. As a result, its leaves start curling, and the foliage droops and wilts, ultimately falling off.

Tips to Maintain Ideal Humidity

  • The most effective way to increase the humidity around your plant is by introducing a humidifier. Although the method might be slightly costly, it is highly recommended.
  • You can also place a wet pebble tray beneath the pot. As the water in the tray evaporates, it maintains moisture in the air.
  • The next way is to group your plants. I barely recommend this method as the grouping is the central hub for spreading diseases and pests.
  • Misting the leaves of your Philodendron Jose Buono in the early hour of the day is also helpful.
  • You can choose a humid area to grow your Philodendron Jose Buono, like a kitchen or a bathroom.

5. Soil Mix Type

You are mistaken if you expect your plant to thrive well in any substrate.

The quality and type of the growing material highly impact the growth rate of plants.

A highly dense or compacted soil has a low environment for air circulation. Thus, your roots might degenerate and grow unhealthy without good air.

Similarly, Philodendron grows under shades where the soil is consistently moist in the natural environment. Therefore, dry soil is a culprit to it.

Here is the list of features that the soil of your Philodendron must possess.

  • Well-draining and resistant to waterlogging
  • Moisture retaining capacity
  • Rich in organic materials and necessary minerals
  • Light and porous
  • Low soil compaction
  • Supporting high air circulation
  • Ideal soil pH between 6.1-7.3
Soil Mix

You can use premade commercial is for your Philodendron Jose Buono. Here are a few pre-made mixtures.

By the way, I always suggest making your potting mix. As such, you can mix and match the ingredients to obtain the best mix for your Philodendron Jose Buono.

Here is the recipe which I use for my Philodendron Jose Buono. Feel safe and free to use the same recipe to grow your Philos.

  • Mix 1 part of cocopeat or peat moss to retain moisture in the soil.
  • One part of perlite for a porous and well-draining mixture.
  • One part of organic compost.
  • 1/2 part of potting mix
  • 1/2 part of pine or orchid barks to maintain acidity and aeration in the soil.
  • 1/3 part of activated charcoal.

6. Timely Fertilization

It is always a good idea to provide your plant with sufficient nutrition. As nutrition plays a vital role in the photosynthesis process, it is fundamental to fertilize your Philodendron Jose Buono once a month in the growing season.

Nutrition deficiencies cause drooping, wilting, limiting, discoloration of foliage, and stunted growth.

As the plant goes under dormancy in winter, it does not require feeding. Hence, reduce the fertilizing frequency gradually until you move to zero.

Moreover, I advise you to use a slow-releasing fertilizer for Philodendron Jose Buono.

Organic fertilizer is the best recommended. However, you can opt for synthetic fertilizer like N.P.K. in the ratio of 15-5-10 or try the fertilizer specifically for the Philodendron Plant.

Always ensure that you reduce the fertilizer’s strength to half whenever you fertilize your Philodendron. Overfertilization in them causes root and leaf burn due to high salt accumulation.

Additional Insight- Always ensure to water your plant before fertilization as moisture increases the rate of nutrition absorption.

What to do if your Philodendron Jose Buono is Overfertilized?

Overfertilization can be as harmful as nutrition deficiencies. Thus, you need to flush out the extra salts accumulated in the soil to maintain healthier growth.

To flush out salts, drench your pot in a pool of tepid water and leave it for about 30 minutes. Soon, the tepid water starts absorbing the salts accumulated in the soil through osmosis.

Continue the process twice a month. However, ensure the soil dries out in between the process.

7. Growth Habits

Are you worried because your Philodendron Jose Buono is growing slow? Well, the plant is so by nature. They are a slow grower.

Generally, the plant reaches a height of about  10 feet (3 meters) in its native environment whereas  4 feet (1.2 meters) in an enclosed space. Similarly, it gains a spread of about 3 feet. 

Besides, Philodendron Jose Buono is an epiphyte that grows on any surface it catches. As it is climbing like many other Philodendrons, consider growing them on a moss pole.

Foliage Type

Philodendron Jose Buono has long elongated leaves with think leathery surface.

The velvety leaves can reach 2 feet (60 cm) in length on maturity.

Flowering Habits

Philodendron Jose Buono flowers once in a blue. Yeah, you read it right. Only after maturity, the plant might produce flowers.

And, if you are growing them indoors, the chances are already halved. You can barely see a Philodendron blooming indoors.

The flower is white to pale green, which generally hides in the broad leaves of Philodendron.

Lucky you will be if you see one. Although flowering is a rare occasion in Philodendron, I do not encourage it. Its flower is not showy and engulfs only the plants’ energy.

Hence, say No to flowers in the case of Philodendron Jose Buono. Immediately cut off the blooms to save the plant’s energy.

8. Rare Pruning

Here is good news to all those who hate cutting back their healthy plants. Philodendron Jose Buono does not demand high pruning.

It is ideal for pruning them once in 1-2 years.

Besides, rather than following a tight schedule, I encourage you to prune your Philodendron according to its need.

Prune them while the plant grows unmanageably large. Furthermore, when the leaves grow older, they turn yellow and wilt. Cut off all of such dried, discolored, and damaged foliage. Also, prune spiky buds that you encounter.

Similarly, if the plant is infected with diseases or pests, you must prune the infected parts. Always ensure to use sterilized pruning materials.

9. Potting and Repotting

Start with a medium-sized pot for Philodendron Jose Buono. As the plant grows older, you should replace the pot with a large one.

Nonetheless, be careful not to use extremely large or small pots.

The ideal pot size for your Philodendron Jose Buono is 8-10 inches. You can also go for a pot about 2 inches larger in diameter than the size of the rootball.

It is also necessary for you to choose the right kind of pot. A pot that supports good drainage air circulation and maintains temperature.

Thus, I advise you to use a terracotta or clay pot for your Philodendron Jose Buono.

Repotting Philodendron Jose Buono

Remember that Jose Buono is a slow grower and does not require frequent repotting. However, in contrast, it also does not like to be root bound.

Thus, you need to repot them when you see signs or when they are rootbound. Otherwise, consider repotting them once every 2-3 years.

To check root bound issues, inspect the roots through drainage holes. If roots are poking out and are severely entangled, you need to repot them.

Here is a complete guide on How to Repot a Philodendron?

Rootbound in plant exhibits yellow foliage and stunted growth.

Additionally, it is best to repot your Philodendron Jose Buono in spring or summer as the season help in better adaptation.

  • Put on safety measures like goggles, gloves, and masks.
  • Uproot the plant. To do so, remove the top 25% of the soil gently tap the pot from the edges.
  • Once the pot gets separated from the pot, remove it by gripping the base of the stem.
  • At this point, you can prune dead and damaged parts. You can also opt to prune roots if they are severely entangled.
  • Now, take a clean pot 2 inches larger than the rootball.
  • Layer its bottommost part with a few pebbles and add potting mix on top.
  • Fill potting mix to the height as it was in the earlier post. It is necessary to plant your plant at the same depth as it was in the earlier post.
  • Place the plant and fill the remaining parts with the potting mix.
  • Thoroughly water the plant and leave it in a well-lit space.

Quick Insight– Newly repotted Philodendron Jose Buono might wilt and droop for a few days. It is because of the transplant shock that the plant will revive naturally within a couple of days.

10. Toxicity of the Plant

Did you know Philodendron is one of the most toxic plants?

Also, you can dial up the hotlines given below in case of an emergency.

Propagation Methods for Philodendron Jose Buono

Why not multiply the plants when it is easy enough to do so? As Philodendron is an epiphyte, it bears aerial roots. Thus, it is simple and easier to propagate them.

Propagation generally involves either better adaptation into a new environment or exhibiting new growth. Hence, it is important that to choose a good time to carry out successful propagation.

It is best to propagate Philodendron Jose Buono from early summer to late summer.

Generally, you can propagate Philodendron Jose Buono by three different methods.

  • Stem cuttings
  • Air Layering
  • Germination of seeds.

Quick Fact- Propagating Philodendron Jose Buono by seeds is a complex process as gathering seeds is a challenge. The plant barely flowers in an indoor environment making seed production further difficult. Also, the plant demands cross-pollination for which you need to gather seeds from two different flowers.

1. Propagating Philodendron Jose Buono via Stem Cuttings

It is the simplest, easiest, and fastest method of propagation. As the plant bears aerial roots, you can easily propagate them via stem cuttings.

Here are steps to follow for propagating Philodendron Jose Buono.

Step 1

Look for the nodes. You can identify nodes from aerial roots. If the nodes do not have aerial roots, look for a slightly thick and light green part that is your node.

Step 2

Make an cut just below the node.

Ensure to use a  sterilized knife or blade to prevent infection spread.

Here, you can take as many cuttings as you like but ensure that each cutting has a node and about two leaves. These stems with inter-node can develop into a whole new plant.

Step 3

Now, it’s time to apply antifungal powder to the cuttings. This is optional, but I encourage you for it.

Spreading antifungal powder reduces the chances of rot.

Step 4 

Then, choose a medium. You can propagate the cuttings in soil, water, LECA, or Sphagnum moss.

To propagate in water, take a transparent tall glass jar for water propagation and fill it with water. Then, Put the stem cuttings into the water.

Generally, you might see new growth popping out after 4-6 weeks.

Also, ensure to change the water once every 3-4 days.

For soil propagation, take a clean pot. Layer it with a few pebbles and pour the potting mix. Then, plant your stem cuttings at the center and fill the remaining portion with the potting mix.

Afterward, water the plant thoroughly and place it in a well-lit container. The cuttings will start producing new growth after about 4- 6 weeks.

2. Propagationg Philodendron Jose Buono via Air Layering

Here are steps to follow for propagating Philodendron Jose Buono.

Step 1

Inspect for a healthy stem with aerial roots. Ensure that the part is free from pests and diseases infestation.

Step 2

Now, take a transparent plastic bag. Afterward, poke a few holes at the bottom of the bag. Then, fill it with a handful of wet sphagnum moss.

Tear the plastic bag into two flaps from the top. Then, hold the Sphagnum moss using both hands and wrap it around the aerial roots.

Now, tie the plastic bag of Sphagnum moss with a string.
