"Heart-leaf" Philodendron is probably one of the
easiest house plants to grow. Place them nearly any where (except
direct sun) and they will thrive. Allow the soil to dry about one
inch from the surface before watering. Feed monthly with a
balanced plant food. If your plant becomes leggy... just cut it
back to the desired size. The cuttings are easily rooted in a
container of water or vermiculite. Philo. Cordatum is readily
available as small starter plants in 3" or 4" pots,
6" and 8" upright plants as well as hanging baskets.
