Heartleaf Philodendron

Philodendron Cordatum in Arizona, USA

The Heartleaf Philodendron, also known as the Sweetheart plant, is originally from southeast Brazil.  It is a fairly easy to care for houseplant, as it will survive in most light conditions.  It also doesn’t need to be watered too often, and appreciates being watered only once the soil has started to dry out. It can be grown as a hanging plant or like the one in this post which climbs up a post.

If you are interested in this plant, you may also be interested in our other posts plants in the same family: the Monstera and also the Variegated Monstera.

Sweetheart philodendron plants can be purchased here for $1.99!

Alternatively, they are also available from Amazon in United Kingdom,
