House Plant

Sweetheart Plant (aka Philodendron Scandens)

  • Location:

    I originate in the Caribbean.
  • Looks:

    I am a climber with elegant heart shaped leaves. The leaves are a bright green, with a lighter central vein.
  • Height:

    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!!
  • Environment:

    I like indirect light... too much and my leaves will drop off, too little and I become more stem than leaf!
  • Flowers:

    I am a foliage plant.
  • Grooming:

    You will need to trim me to keep me compact.
  • Life Span:

    I can live a long time in the right conditions
  • Feeding:

    Use a standard fertiliser between Spring and Autumn.
  • Fact:

    I remove formaldehyde from the air in your home. But I am also toxic to pets and children. Don't eat me.
