Philodendron Cordatum Care
Basic household humidity is fine for your Philodendron Cordatum, but higher humidity will encourage larger leaves. Your plant will benefit from an occasional misting.
The Philodendron Cordatum can cope with low light conditions, but grows faster and produces more leaves bright indirect light. Do not put it in direct sunlight-the sun will burn the foliage.

Philodendron Cordatum like warm temperatures above 55°F (12.8°C). Keep these plants away from drafts and open doors especially during the winter.
Always allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering a Philodendron. When watering, cover the entire surface to prevent leaf problems because of dry soil areas.
Feed your Philodendron Cordatum monthly in the spring and summer with a basic houseplant food diluted to half the recommended strength. Fertilize every other month in the fall and winter months.
Propagate using Stem Cuttings.
