Sweetheart Plant 'Brazil'

English name:

Sweetheart Plant 'Brazil'

Latin name:

Philodendron scandens 'Brazil'

About me:

I am known as a sweetheart plant due to my beautiful heart shaped, golden-yellow variegated leaves.

Useful to know:

Origin

I am native to Mexico, Brazil and the West Indies.

Height/Growth

I am a fast grower, and will climb up a support or trail from a hanging basket. Care for me well and I might reach 4m.

Light

I prefer medium light. I can tolerate bright light but not direct sunlight. A good option for a less sunny room.

Water

Let the very top of my soil dry before watering as I don't like wet roots.

Temperature

Temperatures between 16-24 degrees are ideal for me.

Feeding

During the growing season feed me every 6 weeks with a diluted solution.

Grooming

If I'm getting too gangly, cut back straggly ends and I should grow more consistently.

Care

Wipe my leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust. That way I can photosynthesise properly and look my best./p>

Toxicity

I am toxic, keep me away from pets and children.

Fact

Once mature, I may produce spathes of green-white flowers, periodically.
