These guys are going fast so snap one up for yourself or send as a gift here.


This philodendron likes bright, indirect sunlight.


These guys enjoy a moderate amount of water, keeping the soil slightly moist, but ensuring that the top inch or so dries out between watering.


Feed your philodendron with a slow-release fertiliser once every six months following the instructions on the packet (remember, when you receive a plant from Green Assembly, it has enough slow-release fertiliser to last the first 6 months).  During the warmer months, they like a drink of the stinky liquid fish stuff (like Seasol) once a month, again be sure to follow the dilution instructions on the packet. Then sit back and watch him sprout fresh new leaves.

The heart leaf philodendron (and in fact all philodendron) are toxic to cats and dogs.
