Philodendron scandens is known as the Sweetheart Plant, or Heart-Leaf, due to the beautiful leaf shape. It's obvious association with love makes it a thoughtful gift for weddings, anniversaries or just because.
The sweetheart Plant is a vining Philodendron and can grow to astonishing lengths, either supported as a climber or left trailing from a hanging basket or shelf. A row of trailing Philodendron scandens makes a fantastic living, green curtain. Mature plants may produce spathes of green-white flowers.
You grow, girl! Increase the bushiness of this plant by pinching out after a leaf node on single stems. This will promote off shoots and more branches, meaning more leaves.
Listen to the leaves! This plant will tell you when it is receiving too much or too little water. Too much and the leaves will yellow and drop, too little and they will brown and shrivel.
Location, Location, Location! These plants will thrive in almost all levels of humidity, however placing them in high humidity environments will encourage larger leaves.
