Philodendron Hederaceum Heartleaf


Philodendron Hederaceum Heartleaf aka Heartleaf Philodendron, is a species rarely found or offered as a houseplant. It is native to a small region in Southeastern coastal Brazil, not far from Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. Its graceful, heart-shaped leaves are dark and glossy green in colour but almost look transparent at times. It is incredibly forgiving and will tolerate all kinds of neglect including low light, poor soil, and inconsistent watering. This is a great first-time houseplant or gift for anyone who wants to enjoy the natural beauty of plants without a lot of maintenance.

They do not need to see the sun directly. But filtered sunlight through glass is fine.
They thrive in low to medium light environment.
They need to be watered when the first 1 - 2 inches of soil is dry. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It may vary depends on your environment and light condition, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you do the watering.
They can live in any humidity condition, but higher humidity encourages larger leaves.
Yellow leaves may indicate overwatering, while brown leaves mean the plant needs more water. If you wish to propagate, take stem tip cuttings during the Spring or early Summer and place the stem in water or moist soil and they should root quite easily.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
