Plant Care

Watering

Water once a week or when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil lightly moist at all times, but do not overwater as this will cause brown spots and leaf drop. Curly or dry leaves suggest, the plant is dry and needs watering. Water in the early morning or late evening when temperatures are cooler. Always check your soil before watering.

Light

Bright indoor light or indirect sun. 6 hours to 8 hours

Temperature

Maintain temperatures between 18°C - 24°C. Avoid draughts as these can create undesirable temperature fluctuations. Consider giving your plant an occasional misting twice every week to maintain the optimum humidity level.

Fertilizer

Apply liquid fertilizer once in 15 days when the plant is actively growing. For best results use Folikraft ready to use Indoor Plant Food.

Plant Bio

Velvet leaf philodendron, also known as sweetheart plant, is native to Mexico, Brazil and the West Indies where it thrives deep in the rainforest.

Place your sweetheart in bright but indirect light or semi-shade. The more light it receives the more vigorously it will grow and this plant can climb or trail as much as 4 metres! So hang it from a ceiling, trail from a high shelf or provide climbing support. You can even create a living jungle screen by positioning several together.

Hailing from the rainforest your plant will thrive best in similar conditions of humidity and warmth. Keep the soil moist in the spring and summer and water when the topsoil feels dry in the winter. Mist the leaves every few days or grow in a saucer of stones and water. Use wipes or a clean damp cloth to keep the leaves free of dirt and dust.
