Philodendron Brasil is one of the more popular vining indoor plants. This species is relatively easy to care for which makes it a great option for any room in your home. Their heart shaped foliage has yellow variegated stripes down the center.
You can choose to grow Philodendron Brasil in a hanging basket or allow it to climb a coco pole or other support structure. If you allow it to climb the leaves will grow larger the higher it climbs!
Caring for your Philodendron Brasil is pretty simple! This plant prefers a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Allow your plant to dry out almost completely between watering, taking care to not allow it to sit in excess water. Provide it with medium to bright indirect light.

Philodendron vary greatly in their natural habits, but you will find a large number of them located in Latin America. Their leaves range from small to medium to large to gigantic! You'll find Philodendron with smooth, glossy foliage and some with velvety foliage!
If you allow Philodendron to climb, their foliage will usually get much larger the higher up they get. While this isn't true for all Philodendron species -- it is for most. We recommend a coco pole to really get your Philodendron growing!

As always, another happy healthy plant💚
I got my Brasil in the late spring of 2023 and it's hanging in a window that it loves and is growing like a weed. I love the variegated leaves on this one, and the low maintenance.
One of my favorites. Simple plant but so beautiful. Plant is healthy and was packed with care.
