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.
Potting Soil Mix
Every 12-13 Month
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.
