  1. Leaf Characteristics:

    • The name "Tiger Tooth" suggests a pattern on the leaves resembling teeth or tiger stripes. This could indicate a variegated or patterned appearance on the foliage.
  2. Light Requirements:

    • Philodendrons typically prefer bright, indirect light. If the variety has variegation, providing adequate light is crucial to maintaining the patterns on the leaves.
  3. Watering:

    • Allow the top inch or two of the soil to dry out between waterings. Philodendrons prefer slightly moist but well-draining soil. Avoid overwatering to prevent root rot.
  4. Humidity:

    • Philodendrons, in general, appreciate higher humidity levels. While they can adapt to average humidity, providing some extra humidity, especially in drier environments, can be beneficial.
  5. Temperature:

    • Maintain a warm and consistent temperature. Philodendrons prefer temperatures between 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit (18 to 27 degrees Celsius).
  6. Soil:

    • Use a well-draining potting mix rich in organic matter. A mix formulated for aroids or tropical plants is suitable.
  7. Fertilization:

    • Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer) to support healthy growth. Reduce or eliminate fertilization during the dormant period.
  8. Propagation:

    • Philodendron varieties can be propagated through stem cuttings. Take a cutting with at least one node, allow it to root in water or a suitable rooting medium, and then plant it in a new container.
