Green Paradise Plant - Xanadu The lush and tropical Xanadu philodendron is an ideal small planting for homeowners who want little or no trimming. Xanadu philodendron forms a naturally mounded shape, a pillow of a plant with a delightfully different texture. The plant spreads out and leaves become more deeply divided as it matures. Xanadus are excellent planted alone or as companion plants for highlighting other, more colorful tropical s such as crotons and cordylines. Botanical Name: Philodendron Xanadu Flowering / Evergreen: Evergreen Environment and Light: They will tolerate low light, but if there is too little light, the new leaves will develop smaller, and farther apart on the stem. On the other hand, direct sunlight will burn the foliage, and stunt the growth of the plant. Soil and Moisture: A well drained soil with a bit of sand mixed in it. Add gravel at the bottom of the pot for good draining, air purifying green live indoor plants.
