Heartleaf philodendron is a popular house plant because it is extremely easy to grow. It's also known as the Sweetheart Plant. Heart-shaped, glossy leaves emerge bronze, then quickly turn green. The leaves are typically 2-4 in (5-10 cm) long, and cover its long, slender stems that can grow to 4 ft (1.2 m) or more.

Process :

 

1. Mix your soil. Philodendrons can grow without soil in many conditions, and need an extremely aerated growth source.
2. Secure the cuttings. Place a wooden stake about 1 inch (2.56 cm) down in the pot and prop the cutting onto the stake.
3. Locate your pot in a warm and shaded spot. 
4. Young philodendron cuttings will need to be watered daily, but the plant does not do well when excessively watered since it's susceptible to root rot.

  1. Considered lucky for the house.
  2. Can grow without much assistance and care.

Do's

  1. When the roots begin to compact into a tight ball, the plant should be repotted into a planter that is 2-3 inches larger.
  2. Repotting should be done in late winter or spring, before the plant begins active new growth.
  3. Spray the foliage daily with a water spray bottle. 
  4. Create a mixture of 1/3 peat moss, 1/3 potting soil and 1/3 sand.

Don'ts

  1. Plant does not do well when excessively watered since it's susceptible to root rot.
