How to care for Heart Leaf Philodendron


Heart Leaf Philodendron should be watered regularly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.


Heart Leaf Philodendron loves a well-draining soil. Perlite and vermiculite help with drainage, while coco coir adds organic matter, so a good potting soil mix will have all three. You can improve store-bought soil by adding some perlite to it.


Heart Leaf Philodendron can survive in low light conditions, making them ideal for rooms that are far from windows or other light sources. However, for best results, place the plant less than 6 feet from a south-facing window to ensure it receives enough light.
