Philodendron Chocolate Empress Care Instructions

Light: Philodendron Chocolate Empress prefers indirect sunlight. Any room with a bright window will do, and stay 3 to 6 feet away from the nearest light source. Brighter rooms will help it produce more leaves.

Water: A Philodendron Chocolate Empress likes the soil to be completely dry before watering next. Every 1 to 2 weeks is average.

Humidity: They like any environment. Average household humidity is great.

Philodendron Chocolate Empress Care

Philodendron Chocolate Empress' are a new philodendron hybrid, and they make the perfect houseplant for anyone. They are very easy to care for, and are perfect for those new to plants.

They are known for their full size, round and deep green leaves, with pointed tips and gorgeous white pinstripes. It looks like someone used a paintbrush to make an intriguing pattern. Chocolate Empress stand out from the other houseplants and bring creativity to your home.

Watering Your Philodendron Chocolate Empress

Like most tropical house plants you will water your Chocolate Empress about once per week. The soil should be almost completely dry before watering, and you can feel the lightness in your plant when you lift it up. 

Tropical plants aren't used to seeing water all the time, so letting them go without water for a week is perfectly natural.

Another way to tell is whether you have soil stuck to your finger when you pull it out of the pot. If there’s soil on your finger still, it’s still moist enough and doesn’t need watering yet.

Philodendron Chocolate Empress Light Requirements 

A Philodendron Chocolate Empress is the perfect house plant when it comes to light. It doesn't enjoy direct sun, and is great for a windowsill or bay window that don't get direct sunlight, or in sunny rooms.

Chocolate Empress' are not able to handle low-light conditions that well. The plant will tell you when it needs more light because it starts to grow towards they light source. The second indicator is their beautiful white pinstripes will start to fade to dark green.

Philodendron Chocolate Empress' that are exposed to direct sunlight will get sunburns quite easily. If you start to see sunburns, move your plant to a place where it doesn't receive any direct sunlight.

Common Problems with a Philodendron Chocolate Empress

Spider mites are one of the most common pests of a Chocolate Empress. The mites are reddish-brown in colour and very small. They use up your plant’s nutrients until there is nothing left. They bite the leaves to soak up nutrients, leaving light dot-shaped marks
