The Philodendron Xanadu, sometimes referred to as Philodendron “Winterbourn”, is a large compact easy to grow plant. Each shiny, green, leathery leaf has 15-20 distinct lobes. A Philodendron Xanadu is often wider than it is tall, reaching a height of 2-4ft. and a width of 3-5ft in ideal conditions. The leaves of this beautiful, exotic looking foliage plant can be as large as 16″-18″ long and 7″-14″ wide. These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Unlike many philodendrons, like the Monstera Deliciosa, the Xanadu is an upright plant not a climber or vine. The best part is the older a Xanadu gets the better it looks.A Philodendron Xanadu needs more light than other philodendron plants to maintain its compact appearance. It grows best in medium, indirect light. Too much bright light causes the leaves to become pale and bleached looking; too little light and the stems become elongated as the plant stretches towards the light. Direct sun burns the leaves.Water a Xanadu thoroughly until the water drains out the drip holes in the bottom of the pot, and then allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering again. Leaves turn yellow if the soil stays too wet. A Xanadu grows more slowly in the winter and requires less water.
