Description

Philodendron hederaceum is a species of flowering plant in the family Araceae, native to Central America and the Caribbean. It is an evergreen, hemiepiphytic climber growing to 3–6 m, with heart-shaped glossy leaves to 30 cm long, and occasionally spathes of white flowers in mature plants.

Juvenile leaves are ovate, caudate-acuminate at the apex, with ovate adult leaves that are 15-30 cm long and 10-21 cm wide, deeply lobed at the base, parabolic to spatulate, velvety (sometimes reddish-green) in the beam, rear rib not naked. The leafy plates of young plants are dark green, sometimes reddish-green above, with shiny small closed papillaries, slightly chestnut below, with less noticeable veins.

Caring

Water regularly during the growing season, but reduce watering in fall to late winter.Pinch trailing stems to promote bushier growth.

Planting

The Heartleaf Philodendron is an evergreen vine that thrives in partial shade at moderate temperatures. In tropical regions it can survive outside, however, in most place, it is used strictly as a houseplant. The soil surrounding the Philodendron scandens must be kept moist but not soggy.
