Deets: The Philodendron Brasil is a fast-growing, easy, vining plant. Its graceful, heart-shaped leaves are dark green with yellow variegation in the center of the leaf. This full, trailing plant is perfect on top of bookshelves or in a plant hanger where its vines can ‘spill’ out.
The Philodendron Brazil is incredibly forgiving and will tolerate all kinds of neglect including low light, poor soil, and inconsistent watering. This is a great first-time houseplant or gift for anyone who wants to enjoy the natural beauty of plants without a lot of maintenance.
Name(s): Philodendron Brasil
Light: Prefers indirect sunlight, it will do well in almost any lighting condition (avoid direct sunlight as the leaves will burn). Even areas of low light can be fine, though the leaves will spread more and the colors won’t be as vibrant or glossy.
Water: This philodendron likes a moist environment. In summertime, keep the soil moist but not soggy. In the wintertime, allow the top half-inch of soil to dry between waterings. You can spritz the leaves with water and wipe them down with a cloth to remove dust.
Grower: Beginners, all types.
Pet Friendly: No. Toxic to pets.
Extra Deets: Often confused with Pothos, this variety is fairly tolerant and easy to care for. They are also a great indoor choice because they remove air-born toxins such as formaldehyde from the air.
