        The Best Unboxing Practices:

          Properly caring for your newly unboxed Philodendron Jungle Boogie for the first week of its new life is crucial to the extended wellness of your plant. Follow these practices to get the best results:
            • Watering: Exotic Forest ships freshly watered plants. Do not water your Philodendron Jungle Boogie until it exhibits the proper signs.
            • Repotting: Do not immediately repot your plant, which would likely result in shock and leaf loss. Allow it to acclimate to its new environment for at least one week. 
            • Lighting: Place your Philodendron in filtered, low light for a few days to acclimate. Relocate your Philodendron Jungle Boogie to your desired location that fits its care needs afterward. Do not ever place a freshly un-boxed plant in direct sun.
