Philodendron scandens 'Brasil' (sweetheart plant)

Notify me when this product is available:

This philodendron also known as a Sweetheart plant due to its leaf shape, is great for adding height to a space. It comes with a wire frame for support but it can be encouraged to climb or trail in a direction of your choice. As long as it has regular watering it's easy to care for and will tolerate fairly low light conditions. But beware, it's tendrils will grow towards the light!

Please note, the planter is not included.


Water regularly during warmer months but allow the soil to dry out between each watering and make sure the roots are never sitting in water for a prolonged period. Water less frequently during colder months.

Light requirements 

Requires plenty of indirect light but may suffer if it gets too much direct sunlight. A lack of light can lead to leggy stems/ low growth rate / loss of leaves. 

Care tips

  • Avoid placing the planter next to radiators or draughty windows
  • Carefully wipe the leaves from time-to-time to remove any dust
  • Prune out any brown leaves or stems by cutting as close to the next stem or the base of the plant as possible
  • Use some fertiliser during warmer months i.e. April to September (little and often is best for consistent growth)
