Lights: This Philodendron prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate low-light conditions but may exhibit slower growth and less vibrant variegation. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves. A north or east-facing window with filtered light is usually ideal.

Watering: Water the Philodendron Scandens Brasil when the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil feels dry. It's important not to overwater this plant, as it is susceptible to root rot. Ensure that the pot has proper drainage, and allow excess water to drain out after watering. Reduce watering frequency during winter when growth slows down.

Humidity: Philodendron Scandens Brasil prefers moderate to high humidity levels. It can adapt to average room humidity, but providing extra humidity through methods like misting the leaves or using a humidifier can promote healthier growth. Placing the plant on a tray filled with water and pebbles can also help increase humidity around the plant.
