Heart Leaf Philodendron cordatum (Hanging Basket - M)
The Heartleaf philodendron aka Sweetheart Plant is easy to grow and well known for its distinct heart-shaped glossy green foliage which gives it its name. Fantastic as a hanging plant, or let it trail out from the pot! This Philo is an eager climber, with its leaves emerging from its long, slender stems that can grow to over a metre long when left unpinched. You can snip back the stems at any time to help it become bushier or, alternatively, you can let it grow long and lanky. Always pinch after a leaf node (the place where a leaf is attached to the stem). A new stem will grow from that node.
Best in moderate to bright light but will tolerate low light conditions. Small leaves or long spaces between leaves indicate insufficient light, but avoid direct sunlight as it may scorch the plant. Keep the soil lightly moist over the warmer months and allow the surface of the soil to dry out between waterings in winter. Yellow leaves are caused by overwatering. Maintain humidity by misting regularly. Provide liquid fertiliser during warmer months to encourage and support growth.
Keep soil moist but well drained in the warmer months and let the top soil dry out in winter.
