Philodendron Cordatum - 100mm
The most defining feature of Philodendron cordatum is its heart-shaped leaves. The glossy, deep green foliage lends an air of freshness to indoor spaces. The leaves grow on long trailing vines, and as the plant matures, it can create a lush, cascading effect, making it an excellent choice for hanging baskets, shelves, or countertops.
Light: This plant thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions, but its growth might be slower. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.
Watering: Allow the top inch of the soil to dry before watering. Water when the soil feels slightly dry to the touch, and be cautious not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot. Adjust the frequency based on your home's humidity and the plant's location.
Humidity: Philodendron cordatum can adapt to various levels, but it appreciates slightly increased humidity. Misting the leaves or placing the plant on a humidity tray can be beneficial, especially in drier environments.
Fertiliser: During the growing season (spring and summer), feed the plant with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks. Reduce or stop feeding in the winter when growth slows down.
Propagation: Philodendron cordatum can be propagated through stem cuttings. Place the cuttings in water or directly in soil, and they will develop roots over time.
This plant is in a 100mm pot. Plants cannot be shipped to WA, TAS or NT
