Florida Ghost

Florida Ghost

The Philodendron Florida Ghost is a rare and unique plant that is hard to find! This low-maintenance plant connects very well with its name because the new leaves come in a glossy, white color that look like the shape of a ghost. As the leaves mature they turn lime green to later turn dark green. This plant is treated just like any other Philodendron but extra rare! 

  • Light

The Florida Ghost will appreciate a spot in bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight as it will scorch the leaves. Although yellowing leaves can be a part of development of your plant, if it is happening to several, it could be from too much exposure to sunlight. 

  • Water

Water requirements for a Florida Ghost is the same as any other Philodendron. Let the soil dry out about 50% of the way and then give it a nice soak. Water more sparingly in the winter months. 

  • Humidity and Temp

Florida Ghost’s can tolerate temperatures from 50-95 degrees Fahrenheit. They are not very hardy in the winter so when winter months come around, try to place in area that will avoid cold drafts. As for humidity, your Ghost can adjust to a range of humidity levels. A fairly moist area to keep your plant in will be appreciated. 

  • Soil

Almost any well-draining potting mix will be sufficient for your Florida Ghost. Our go-to recommendation for a high-quality soil that’s fast draining is Fox Farms Ocean Forest.

  • Fertilizer

Florida Ghost should be fertilized monthly in the spring and summer. No need to fertilize in the winter or fall months.


  • Pet Friendly? 
No, your Florida Ghost is not human or pet friendly.
