The soft, variegated, heart-shaped leaves of the Philodendron Brasil make it one of our favorite trailing plants. These low-maintenance beauties easily fill up any corner of a room, adding stunning color and warmth.
Philodendron Brasil are great air purifying plants.
Light: Philodendron prefer bright, indirect light—placing it near an east or south facing window is ideal. Direct sun or too much light will burn or fade the leaves.
Water: Water philodendron when the soil becomes dry to a depth of 1-2 inches - likely every 7 days. Don’t allow the pot to stand in water, as this will cause root rot.
Humidity: Humidity will encourage your Philodendron to put out new growth. During the winter months, mist your plant at least twice a week.
Fertilization: Fertilize monthly during the spring and summer with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength.
Pet Toxicity: Philodendron leaves are toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will result in swelling of the lips and tongue, and stomach irritation with possible vomiting.
