Philodendron ‘xanadu’ is a beautiful foliage plant which grows very compact and in the shape of a mushroom cap. Unmatched by any other big-leafed tropical, this foliage plant plays an important role in creating jungle-like exotic compositions in warm winter gardens. It is tolerant of both sun and considerable shade. Xanadu bears lush foliage with a dusty pink midrib beneath. It can best be described as a much more compact and more densely foliated Philodendron. Unlike almost all other Philodendron species its foliage and form actually improves as the plant develops. The flower is not showy. It gets creamy-white spathes in summer. The plant can be kept in a moderately lit condition. The soil should be kept moist at all times but not soggy. Water thoroughly, then allow the top 1-2 inches of soil to dry out between waterings.
