Philodendron Scandens 15cm Pot
Common Name: Heart Leaf Philodendron

Philodendron scandens, also known as heartleaf philodendron or sweetheart plant, is a popular indoor plant prized for its trailing vines and heart-shaped leaves. It belongs to the Araceae family and is native to the tropical regions of Central America and the Caribbean.

Heart-shaped leaves
As the common name suggests, the leaves of Philodendron scandens are heart-shaped, glossy, and typically dark green. The foliage may vary slightly in size and color depending on the specific variety.

Trailing vines
This plant is known for its trailing growth habit, making it ideal for hanging baskets or climbing up supports. It can grow quite long if given the space and support to do so.

Easy care
Philodendron scandens is relatively easy to care for, making it a popular choice for indoor gardeners, including beginners. It thrives in moderate to bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

Allow the top inch or so of the soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it’s essential to let the soil dry slightly before watering again. Ensure proper drainage in the pot to prevent waterlogged soil.

Temperature and humidity
Philodendron scandens prefers temperatures between 18°C to 27°C and appreciates moderate to high humidity. If the air in your home is dry, you can increase humidity by misting the leaves, placing the plant on a humidity tray, or using a humidifier.

During the growing season (spring and summer), fertilise Philodendron scandens monthly with a balanced houseplant fertiliser diluted to half strength. Reduce or stop fertilising during the fall and winter months when growth slows down.
