Philodendron Strawberry Shake
Philodendron Strawberry Shake is the variegated form of the popular variety ‘Red Emerald’. Color on the stems is usually dark red while the leaf coloration is usually green with a beautiful palette of variegation ranging from bright white to cream to pink to deep red.
Like most Philodendrons, this variety prefers moist but well-draining soil and some humidity. As it climbs, it should be staked or allowed to climb up moss poles. In higher humidity environments, numerous aerial roots will form which gives the plants a beautiful look.
Please note that due to the nature of variegation, each plant is a unique individual. There will be some variability from plant to plant and even from one leaf to another on the same plant. For this reason, we are unable to guarantee a specific amount of variegation especially younger plants.
Most of our products come with multiple shipping options. For those that are unpotted, you can add Pots and Soil a la carte.
Fertilization Type & Schedule for Philodendron Strawberry Shake
Philodendron ‘Strawberry Shake’ will need to be fertilized regularly, typically once a month, during the growing season.
A commercial fertilizer that is formulated for indoor plants will do the job. Many enthusiasts recommend diluting the fertilizer to half strength before applying.
Stop fertilizing during the late fall and winter, because the plant will slow down growth.
Try to avoid a fertilizer with too many salts, as these can build up in the soil and become toxic to the plant.
If you are concerned with the amount of salts in your soil, place the plant in the sink and rinse the soil for a few minutes.
Allow the soil to drain completely before returning the plant to its usual location.
