Common names: Heartleaf Philodendron, Sweetheart Plant, Parlor Ivy
Philodendrons make a wonderful houseplant for beginner plant caretakers! They are easy going, resilient, and come in a variety of colors and shapes. Native to Central and South America and the Caribbean, this family ranges from plants with trailing leaves to those that grow in denser bushes of leaves. The 'Brasil' is beautiful with its lime and dark green colors melting into each other. In a smaller pot, this plant presents as a dense bush, but as it matures it becomes beautifully suited for a hanging basket or placement atop a high table or shelf.
Ease: Easy Breezy
Pet Friendly: No
Care: Your Philodendron's leaves will grow larger in more humid environments! If you see any dying or diseased leaves, trim close to the stem with clean scissors.
