Philodendron hederaceum ‘Brasil’ is a wild and bold cultivar of the classic Heartleaf Philodendron. Its variegated leaves look almost painted, with strokes of yellow and lime green across the deep green foliage. As if that weren’t tropical enough, the stems have pinkish orange hue. Tolerant of a wide range of light conditions, this plant is a prolific grower, producing long cascading vines that can easily reach the floor. Like its cousin, the standard green Heartleaf Philodendron, Philodendron ‘Brasil’ is extremely easy to grow – no green thumb required.
‚Ä¢ Light: Low to bright, indirect light
‚Ä¢ Water: Water when the top 1-2″ of soil dries out
