The Philodendron Silver Sword has beautiful leaves that have a glossy sheen when they catch the light at certain angles, and a bright green colour otherwise. They make a striking addition to any houseplant collection, and really work well as a free standing plant in the corner of a room. These plants grow best with the help of a stick or moss pole as they reach maturity, and prefer a spot out of direct sunlight in the home. Make sure to keep the soil moist at all times, but never soggy.

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 sunlight.

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.
Soil/Repotting: Well draining, nutrient rich potting soil.

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
