About Heartleaf Philodendron
The Heartleaf Philodendron is a popular hanging plant because of its romantic heart-shaped leaves. It has a ferocious appetite for growth and will happily trail from any brightly spot. Philodendron Scandens are easily propagated by taking cuttings at leaf nodes and allowing roots to develop, meaning it can be the gift that keeps on giving (if you have the patience and dedication).
We have 2 varieties of the Heartleaf Philodendron, including the variegated ‘Brasil’ version. If the heart-shaped leaves of the philodendron weren’t beautiful enough already, the variegated version takes it’s beauty to another level. If you can’t think of where would be good to keep your hanging plant, you can always consider adding a floating shelf.

How To Care For Heartleaf Philodendron
Water when the top couple of inches dry out. You want to really avoid over-watering your heartleaf philodendron to prevent root-rot.
A brightly lit location with little or no direct sun is best, but it will be fine in a darker area. Take note that the chance of rootrot is higher when put in a darker place.
This plant does alright in average room humidity, but you can increase the humidity with a pebble tray or misting the plant every now and then.
Philodendron scandens loves a soil with loam, sand and peat in equal parts.
Use a basic houseplant feed once a forthnight in spring and summer. Reduce to once a month during autumn and winter.
