The Philodendron Jungle Boogie is also known as Philodendron Tiger Tooth, Philodendron Henderson’s Pride, and Philodendron Narrow.

This perennial is part of the Araceae family and is well-known for its unique and attractive foliage. It is long and narrow with deep serration on the edges and has dark green-colored leaves.

The groovy name “Jungle Boogie” is believed to be given due to the plant’s zig-zag growing habit, and this absolutely adds to the plant’s exotic appeal.

Philodendron Tiger Tooth belongs to the Philodendron genus in the Araceae family. Natively, it’s from the rainforests of Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America.

Believed to be a Thai hybrid, Philodendron Jungle Boogie is said to be a cross of Philodendron Wendlandii and Philodendron Tortum.

The Philodendron Jungle Boogie grows about 2-3 feet tall and 10 inches wide as a houseplant. This stunning perennial prefers to be placed near an east or west-facing window and is considered a fast grower.

Philodendron Jungle Boogies are humidity-loving plants that need relatively dry soil throughout the year. Water your plant when the soil’s top two inches are dry during the summertime. Keep pouring until water flows out of the drainage hole. Be sure to empty the catch plate to avoid root rot.

The watering frequency will vary based on the temperature and the humidity in your plant’s surroundings. Generally speaking, your Philodendron Tiger Tooth prefers a relatively dry growing medium.

Light: Like many indoor plants, Philodendron Jungle Boogie prefers bright indirect light for 6-8 hours per day. Remember, you’re trying to recreate the low light conditions in the rainforests of Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America. Placing this plant near an east or west-facing window or in the low-light areas of the home works well in most situations. You’ll know your Philodendron Jungle Boogie is getting too much light when its leaves may show signs of getting scorched. On the other hand, if it doesn’t get enough light, its stems may get leggy.

Watering: The watering frequency will vary based on the temperature and the humidity in your plant’s surroundings. Generally speaking, your Philodendron Tiger Tooth prefers a relatively dry growing medium.Avoid overwatering your Philodendron Tiger Tooth. When the soil’s top two inches are dry, it’s time to give your plant a drink. The best way is to water directly on the soil and take care not to wet its narrow leaves so you can avoid fungal diseases.Allow the water to flow through the bottom of the pot. Remember to empty the collection tray if your plant is sitting in one. Avoid putting your Philodendron Jungle Boogie in direct sunlight, as this could severely damage or even kill it.
