6" Philodendron subhastatum
Bright indirect light
Water when top 1-2" of soil is dry
Philodendron subhastatum is a very easy to grow indoor tropical plant. The leaves are red underneath. As the plant matures the leaves will get larger. Native to many parts of Latin America.
Philodendron subhastatum loves to climb and will live its best life if given a coco pole or other support structure to attach to. If it isn't allowed to climb, it will slowly meander out of the pot to try and find something to attach to.
Caring for your Philodendron subhastatum is really easy. Make sure your new plant is in a soil that is rich in organic matter. Allow the plant to dry out almost completely between watering, taking care to not allow it to sit in excess water. Provide it with bright indirect light for a truly happy, healthy plant!
Philodendron is one of the most popular genuses of Aroid that are currently in cultivation, with over 450 named cultivars.
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!
For the most part, Philodendron are easy to care for.
