Philodendron scandens is known as the Sweetheart Plant, or Heart-Leaf, due to the beautiful leaf shape. This 'Brasil' variety has stunning golden-yellow variegated leaves. 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. This options is grown up a moss pole for support.
Reach for the sky! As the plant grows, it may get too long for the current moss pole. Insert a new pole in the hole at the top of the old one and use moss pole pins to secure the new growth into position.
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.
Leaning tower of leaves! As the plant grows it may become top heavy and the moss pole can start to lean. Straighten the pole up and pack compost in tight around it using your fingertips, being mindful not to damage any roots.
