The ‘Brasil’ offers a colorful twist on a plant that has been a houseplant favorite for generations. That’s because heart-Leaf Philodendrons are some of the easiest tropical plants to grow indoors. They tolerate all kinds of neglect including low light, poor soil and inconsistent watering. This is a great first-time houseplant or gift plant and it’s perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy the natural beauty of plants without a lot of maintenance.
Light: Bright, indirect light. Keep these beauties in a well-lit room where they do not get more than 2 hours of direct sunshine every day.
Watering: 4-5 days. Apply water at the soil level if possible to avoid wetting the foliage. Water the entire soil area until water runs out the base of the pot. This indicates that the soil is thoroughly wet. Allow the water to thoroughly drain before placing your plant back into its spot.
Fertilizer: Slow-release fertilizers are an especially good, care-free choice for container plants. A single application can often provide plants with the proper level of nutrition all season long.
