The Eva generally prefers medium light and thrives in bright indirect sunlight. They are well-known for their ability to tolerate low light, but they won’t thrive. Their leaves will likely grow much smaller, and the stems might become more leggy and sparse. Too much direct sunlight with burn the leaves, which is no good. You can—and should—let philodendrons dry out between watering. Don’t over-water and avoid soggy soil—one tell-tale sign of over-watering in a philodendron is the leaves turning yellow and drooping. Under-watering? Leaves browning, crinkling, and falling off.
