About Heart Leaf Philodendron (Philodendron cordatum)

Care Instructions

Light Requirements:

Heart Leaf Philodendrons thrive in bright, indirect light but can tolerate low light conditions. They are adaptable to various light levels, making them perfect for different indoor locations. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.

Water Requirements:

Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Reduce watering frequency in the winter months when the plant's growth slows.

Soil Requirements:

Use a well-draining potting mix. A mix designed for aroids or a blend of potting soil with peat moss and perlite works well.

Humidity:

Philodendron cordatum prefers moderate to high humidity levels. Regular misting or placing a humidifier nearby can help maintain the necessary humidity, especially in dry indoor conditions.

Pro Tip

To encourage fuller growth, regularly pinch back the stems of your Heart Leaf Philodendron. This will promote bushier growth and prevent the plant from becoming too leggy.
