Heart Leaf Philodendron (Philodendron cordatum)
Considered one of the easiest houseplants to care for, the 4-inch Heart Leaf Philodendron (Philodendron cordatum) is perfect for the beginning indoor gardener. The name philodendron means "love tree" in Greek, and the heart-shaped leaves bare out that name and its other name, "the sweetheart plant." With a limited amount of care and attention, this hearty vine is perfect for hanging because the leaves will cascade down like a waterfall.
This beautiful vine prefers indirect or diffused sunlight and will thrive in standard potting soil kept moist.
A standard houseplant fertilizer will keep it happy along with a prune here and there. And don't forget, once your plant gets root bound, it is time to replant in a larger pot (usually in the spring).
Be careful around pets and small children because the leaves are poisonous.
Sold in the 4-inch grower's original container.
