Description

Silver Sword is a rare climbing Philodendron loved for his easy-going nature and grey almost metallic foliage. Naturally found climbing up a tree in the Colombian rainforest. For best results, you might want to give him some support using a fancy plant stake or a trellis

Like most philodendrons, the Hastatum enjoys bright, indirect sunlight. In your home, this could be a place close to a window, but not directly in front of, as this can lead to the foliage burning. The plant is generally easy to grow and has glossy leaves which will usually tolerate lower light conditions (not ideal).

  • Quick Facts
  • What to use me for: I am a great indoor houseplant 

    I grow to: 3m high, 50cm wide 

    Where to place me: I like bright indirect light, can also handle lower light levels but may not grow as well. I look good in a hanging basket too!

    Watering conditions: Make sure the first 2cm of my soil is dry to touch before you top me up

    Soil Conditions: I like a well-draining potting mix 

    Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently.

  • Size
  • I am currently 10cm tall in a 50mm nursery tube 

  • Growing
  • I am pretty easy going and won't need much extra care - if you start to see me looking sad you can give me a feed with some slow-release fertiliser. Pruning/ pinching may be required so that the plant doesn’t grow too straggly. 

    Like other aroid plants, Philodendron Hastatums enjoy well-draining soil. Silver Sword likes to be moist but doesn’t want to have its roots too wet as this can lead to root rot. Make sure the top inch of the soil is dry before re-watering the plant. Humidity requirements are average. 

     

  • Delivery
  • Our plants are beautifully grown and have well-developed roots. They are hardened, can be planted directly into the planters and are excellent performing Indoor plants - it’s our plant promise guarantee!

    We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and fast, free delivery to your door
