Philodendron Hastatum 'Silver Sword'

This 'Silver Sword' Philodendron is an easy to grow natural climber, which as the plant matures will develop larger and increasingly arrow shaped leaves. The leaves are a lovely silvery-grey, it will require additional support it time so you could experiment with giving it further canes, a moss pole or clipping it to your wall making it a real focal point. It comes on this lovely bamboo rack.

Please note, the decorative planter is not included in the price.

Watering

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)
