philodendron

Zone New hampshire | Janbrightman added on August 27, 2015 | Answered

I have a philodendron. The leaves are very shiny and healthy. The vines are very long and although the leaves look good, many of the leaves in between have yellowed an fallen off so I end up with shiny leaves, a long empty vine and more shiny healthy leaves. What can I do to not lose the leaves in between?

It may need some pruning, repotting and fertilizer. Trimming back the plant can rejuvenate the plant.
Yellowing leaves can indicate a watering issue, to much or to little.
