Philodendron cordatum 'Silver Stripe'

 

Philodendron 'Silver Stripe'

The two popular types of Philodendron are climbers and non-climbing varieties. The climbers, are suited to the average room as long as you provide firm support for the stems. The climbing Philodendrons produce aerial roots from the stems. Most of the non-climbers are capable of growing into immense plants with large, deeply lobed leaves. These are more suited to buildings with large open spaces. Average warmth is required, not less than 55F in winter. Philodendron Cordatum is a trailing or climbing plant, commonly known as Sweetheart Vine or Heart Leaf Philodendron. It has heart-shaped, green leaves that are typically about 2-3 inches across although they will grow much larger outdoors. This Philodendron is the one most often used as an interior houseplant.'Silver Stripe' has an irregular broad cream stripe in the centre of the leaves

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant in a location with bright, indirect sunlight. Position near to a window where direct sunlight cannot touch the foliage. If the plant gets too much light, the leaves will begin to turn yellow. If the stems are long and leggy without plenty of leaves, the plant is most likely to be receiving insufficient light.

 

Propagation

From Early Summer TO Late Summer

Cuttings require warm conditions. In summer, take stem cuttings or air layer the climbing varieties. With non-climbing varieties, shoots taken from the base of the stem can be used as cuttings.
