Philodendron Cordatum Green
The heartleaf philodendron (Philodendron scandens) is native to South and Central America and the West Indies. It is a very popular houseplant, offering year-round beauty and easy care. It's also known as the "sweetheart plant" for its heart-shaped green leaves.
Light: Prefers bright, indirect light. It can survive in medium light conditions, but growth may slow. Do not put it in full, direct sunlight as it will burn the foliage.
Water: Water when the 95% of soil is dry.
*We recommend Bottom-watering, sometimes called reverse watering, is when you place a plant in a bowl of water, allowing the soil and roots to soak water from the bottom up. (Naturally, your pot needs to have drainage holes for this to work.)
Humidity: Normal household humidity is fine for Philodendron Birkin, but higher humidity encourages larger leaves. Your plant will benefit from regular misting.
Temperature: Your plant will grow well in temperatures between 65-80 degrees during the day and above 55 degrees at night. Keep it away from drafts, especially during the winter months.
Food: Feed once a month during spring and summer with a liquid fertilizer for indoor plants. Feed every other month during the fall and winter.
Toxicity: Philodendron leaves are toxic to pets and humans.
