Green Sweetheart Plant | Philodendron scandens

My beautiful heart shaped leaves are what gives me my name. I am often mistaken for a pothos but the tips of my leaves are pointier and glossy.

Useful to know:

Origin

I originate from the Caribbean, Colombia and Venezuela, but today I'm also grown in Asia.

Height/Growth

I can grow as tall as 4m if I'm cared for well.

Light

I prefer medium light: not too bright and not too shady. But I am more tolerant of shade than others.

Water

Keep my soil moist but I am more tolerant of drought than overwatering. Little and often is best.

Temperature

Keep me warm and away from draughts. I shouldn't be in a room lower than about 14 degrees.

Feeding

Give me some weak, all-purpose fertiliser during the warmer months.

Grooming

Just give my leaves a wipe if dust builds up so I can breathe properly.

Care

If I'm getting too long or a bit straggly, take sharp shears and give me a trim.

Toxicity

Keep me away from pets and children.

Fact

I'm an easy-grower so a great plant if you want to start your indoor jungle quickly! Click here to buy a Green Sweetheart Plant and a Hanging Green Sweetheart Plant.
