Philodendron “Silver Sword” – 4″ pot

$30.00

Rare Philodendron Hastatum “Silver Sword” gets its name both from its sword shaped leaves, and its silvery, shimmery leaves. Silver Sword is a fast growing, easy to care for Philodendron that is really striking. The leaves are so shimmery and are such a beautiful shade of silvery green. In order for the plant to reach its full potential it will need a pole or trellis, as it tends to grow straight upwards and will become top heavy very quickly. As the plant matures and climbs the leaves will become more arrow shaped.

**It should be noted that all parts of the plant are toxic and will cause irritation and burning of the mouth if eaten. Ingesting the plant may also cause difficulty swallowing, drooling, and vomiting.

Philodendron plants are easy to grow and are most suitable for the warm, non-freezing climates of USDA plant hardiness zones 9b-11. They are most often grown as indoor plants. Place in a warm room where temperatures are between 60 and 95 F.

Philodendron should be planted in a container filled with quality, well-drained potting mix.

This plant is tolerant to most light levels but is happiest in moderate or filtered light. Semi shady areas are fine, but intense sunlight may scorch the leaves.

Feed every other week using a general-purpose, water-soluble fertilizer mixed to half strength. Repot the philodendron whenever the plant looks crowded in its pot.

Water the plant deeply, then allow the top of the soil to become slightly dry before watering again. Never allow the pot to sit in water.
