Heart-Leaf Philodendron Hanging
The Heartleaf Philodendron or Philodendron scandens is a tropical vine with heart-shaped dark green leaves. The elegant Philodendron loves to climb up a wall or trellis or trail down the side of your bookcase or table. These beautiful tropical plants are relatively easy to look after and are also renowned as air purifying superstars. We've also got a version climbing a moss pole here.
Height is measured from the bottom of the plastic nursery pot (please allow a +/-10% variance). Diameter is the nursery pot diameter, so to get a pot that fits, the pot diameter should be bigger.

About Heart-Leaf Philodendron
The Heartleaf Philodendron was brought from the West Indies to Kew Gardens in 1793, by Captain William Bligh (the same captain from the Mutiny on the Bounty). After it was discovered that the Philodendron was easy to keep and propagate, it became a popular and mass-market plant.
In the wild, Philodendron scandens climb up tree trunks and other plants. While young, their leaves have a pointy brown tip, as they mature turns into a lush deep green colour.
Philodendrons will thrive in warm, humid and bright conditions, although they can cope in a wide range of light conditions, including the light shade. They are relatively drought-tolerant, and it is best to water them when the top few cms of soil have dried out and less so in winter.
