Philodendron Martianum (Fatboy)

The Fatboy lives up to its name, with beautiful green leaves and thick petiole, it immediately stands out in your collection.

The leaves are usually 25 to 35 cm long in an adult plant and the plant can grow 1 to 1.2 meters high.

This houseplant needs little water but likes to stand in moist soil. Don't get his feet too wet, because then there is a risk of root rot.

Avoid direct sun, as this can burn leaves. It also cannot tolerate temperatures below 15 degrees.

Philodendron Fatboy can be fertilized every two weeks in the summer months with a light fertilizer. Fertilization is hardly necessary in autumn and winter. Growth then slows down and the plant consumes few nutrients. The Philodendron does not grow particularly fast, but as with all plants, it is wise to give the plant a larger pot once every few years. This allows the roots  to grow further and some fresh soil also provides the plant with extra nutrients. It is best to repot at the end of winter or early spring, so that the plant has enough time to recuperate for the new season.

The Fatboy  is sensitive to too much water. If you get Philodendron brown leaves, it is most likely because it is getting too much water. Yellowish leaves that hang limp are often a sign that the plant finds it a little too light in its current location. You can safely cut off brown leaves at the split on the trunk, the plant will eventually grow new leaves.
