Description

This cultivar of the Heartleaf Philodendron is mostly on the market as Philodendron scandens 'Brasil'. It has a green-yellow stripe down the centre of the dark green heart-shaped leaves and otherwise resembles Philodendron hederaceum var. oxycardium. The wild type is native to the humid forests of Central and South America, where it climbs several metres high on trees. This aroid is an adhesive root climber and also grows hanging and creeping on the ground.

This Philodendron grows well in a loose soil that should neither dry out nor become waterlogged. It also thrives well in hydroponics. When well established, the plant can be given a houseplant fertiliser. High humidity is favourable, but not necessary. The Heartleaf Philodendron 'Brasil' still grows in low light, but becomes stronger in a bright, not full-sun spot. Temperatures are best at at least 20 °C and should not fall below 15 °C for a long time. In a moist environment the roots will attach themselves to the support, otherwise the shoots must be attached where they are to climb. Propagate by head cuttings and partial cuttings; stems lying on the ground will take root at the nodes.

Philodendron hederaceum 'Brasil' is an ideal, easy and rather small-leaved climber that grows both in humid rainforest terrariums and in drier conditions. It can be used climbing, hanging or as a ground cover.
