Heart Leaf Philodendron (Philodendron Cordatum)
Styled in Bonnie Pot
Philodendron is one of the largest genus of the flowering plants in the Araceae family and is native to Central America and the Caribbean. This species of cordatum is commonly called Heart Leaf Philodendron or Sweetheart vine and is a trailing/vining variety. Philodendrons make popular houseplants due to their low maintenance requirements.
The Heart Leaf Philodendron has beautiful green heart-shaped leaves that are typically approximately 4-6cm across, although they can grow much larger outdoors. Position your Heart Leaf Philodendron in bright indirect sunlight ensuring that it doesn't receive direct hot sun.
The Heart Leaf Philodendron will survive in low light conditions but may become leggy. Like most indoor houseplants the Heart Leaf Philodendron doesn't require a lot of water. In warmer months allow the top layer of soil to dry between waterings. In cooler months you can back off on the water.
