Light requirements: Philodendron hastatum prefers bright, indirect light. While it can tolerate lower light conditions, it will thrive and develop its best coloration in a well-lit environment.
Watering: Allow the top inch or two of the soil to dry out before watering. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's important to let the soil dry between waterings.

This plant is in a 100mm pot. Plants cannot be shipped to WA, TAS or NT.
