The Philodendron Burle Marx plant is named after Roberto Burle Marx. Burle Marx was the first architect to use native plants in modern landscape designs. At the beginning of my plant collection journey I didn't quite understand what all the hype was about, but the longer I stare at them the more I admire this simple, yet characteristic emerald green beauty. 

Care

Light: Philodendrons do well in a range of light conditions. They prefer moderate to bright indirect light, but can tolerate shadier lighting conditions as well. Avoid direct sunight.

Water: Keep the soil moist at all times. Allow the top of the soil to dry out slightly before re-watering. Will tolerate some degree of drought better than having its roots too wet. 

Temperature/Humidity:  Average to warm household temperatures from 18-28°C and short periods down to 12°C at an absolute push. Avoid cold draughts. Comfortable in average household humidity.

Care Tips: Wipe leaves with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust. Please note, leaves can develop yellow patches after a change in temperature or environment. These can be removed at the base of the stem if required

*Philodendrons are toxic to cats and dogs. Do not consume*

Philodendrons were part of NASA clean air study and found effective in improving indoor air quality by removing formaldehyde.
