There are over 200 different varieties of philodendron plants that come in different sizes, colors, and leaf shapes. The heartleaf or sweetheart philodendron has dark green, shiny, heart-shaped leaves and looks great as a table or hanging plant. Heartleaf philodendrons are some of the most popular plants we use in homes and offices; they thrive on neglect and are almost impossible to kill. Another great plus, philodendron plants remove air-born toxins such as formaldehyde from the air.

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

*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.
