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.
