House Plant Care
Philodendrons prefer bright, indirect light but can tolerate low lighting conditions, and some gentle direct light.
Keep the soil moist but not drenched. Water when the topsoil feels a little dry. Can be misted regularly, as it enjoys a humid environment.
We advise feeding this plant with fertilizer a couple of times during the summer growing period.
It is a fast grower and an avid climber.
These plants are considered to be toxic if ingested so it is best to keep them out of reach of curious children and pets.
Your Heartleaf Philodendron comes potted in either a Bergs - Julie ø8cm - Rosa or a Bergs - Hoff ø8cm - Rosa/Rosa.
They are roughly 10-15cm in length from pot to leaf tip.
