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 Heart leaf is charming with its deep green heart-shaped leaves that grow upwards just a bit before trailing down. They look beautiful in a hanging basket or set atop a tall table.

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.
