Philodendron scandens (small)
This variant is currently sold out.
Also called the heart leaf plant, philodendron scandens is a fast growing climber (or trailer), and one of our all time favourite trailing plants - we love the shape of the leaves, and it is just so easy to keep. This plant fits perfectly into so many of our pots - Fiona, Jennie, Frank, Kevin, Maria, Mary, Julie, Laura, Sienna and Jane, John, and Liam.
Light: It will be fine in semi-shade, although you might notice the leaves fading a bit. He prefers a position in a bright room.
Water: Water when the top two inches of soil are dry. Resist the urge to over water it, particularly in winter time. You might be surprised by how long it can take for it to dry out a little.
Humidity: Give him a good misting when you can, or a holiday in a steamy bathroom.
Feed: A liquid feed in the spring and summer, around every 3-4 weeks will keep it thriving.
Care tips: This is a fast growing plant so feel free to trim away to keep it bushy, or let the trails go on and on.
Toxicity: Philodendrons are toxic if ingested.
*Our plants and pots are sold separately. Your plant will arrive in its plastic nursery pot, unless you have also ordered a decorative pot.
