BloomBox Club Plant Care Hub
(aka Philodendron Scandens)
I originate in the Caribbean.
I am a climber with elegant heart shaped leaves. The leaves are a bright green, with a lighter central vein.
I just keep on climbing, up to 1.5Meters if left. You will have to trim me to keep me on my pole, or gently replace the pole and let me fly!!
I like indirect light... too much and my leaves will drop off, too little and I become more stem than leaf!
I am a foliage plant.
You will need to trim me to keep me compact.
I can live a long time in the right conditions
Use a standard fertiliser between Spring and Autumn.
I remove formaldehyde from the air in your home. But I am also toxic to pets and children. Don't eat me.
