Heart Leaf Philodendron

Philodendron cordatum

Plant Story

Philodendron Cordatum, also known as Heart Leaf Philodendron, is native to Brazil. Heart Leaf Philodendron is known for its stunning heart-shaped leaves in deep green hues and its ability to be trained to climb up trellises or moss poles, making it an easy plant to create a jungle vibe with. Heart Leaf Philodendron makes for a stunning indoor plant because of its trailing foliage and quick growing nature.


Philodendron cordatum grows best in medium to bright indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions, but its growth will be much slower and smaller.


We recommend watering when the first two inches of soil feels dry.


Philodendrons prefer temperatures of 65⁰ to 85⁰.


Apply a balanced houseplant fertilizer at half strength once every 1 - 3 months.
