Philodendron Scandens Brasil in nursery hanging pot ϕ-15cm x h-13cm

Philodendron scandens is known as the Sweetheart Plant or Heart-Leaf, due to the beautiful heart leaf shape. It's a hardy plant that can survive in lower light and colder temperatures, and is great for offices and homes, since it rids the air of carbon monoxide and formaldehyde. This philodendron can be trailed down a shelf or a bookcase or can also be attached to a moss pole and will climb beautifully. This is a great versatile plant, suitable for many rooms in your home. Also a great choice for a beginner or as a gift. 

Light: Best in medium light. Can tolerate bright light, but not direct sunlight. Perfect for shady spots too.

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: Average household temperatures from 16-24°C are ideal. Minimum 13°C.                 Can tolerate some draught.

Feed: Apply a weak solution of liquid fertiliser two or three times during the growing season.

Care tips: Wipe leaves with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust.

Air Purifying: Philodendron filter airborne toxins such as such as formaldehyde, benzene and trichloroethylene from the atmosphere and they are part of our clean air plant collection.

Height and Growth Rate: Ultimate height is anything up to 4m. Trim as required. A fast growing, vigorous climber.

Toxicity: These plants are poisonous. Keep plants away from children and pets and take care when handling.
