ABOUT OUR PHILODENDRON SCANDENS
Hi, I’m Deborah. I’m the sort of plant that is so loved they named me twice. I go by the name Philodendron Scandens and the sweetheart plant. My glossy leaves and low maintenance reputation have made me very popular amongst keen houseplants owners and plant novices alike. My tall and slender figure means you can place me in the corner of your living room or hallway. Although I prefer a bright spot, I’m still happy in a room that has less natural light. I’m more likely to produce new growth in a brighter spot.
My family consists of over 400 species. Many of my brothers and sisters make good indoor plants due to their no-fuss, pretty foliage. I’m a natural climber and will attach myself to tree branches, rock crevasses and just about anything I can get my vines on. You can find my species all over the tropics from the Caribbean to South America where we grow under the canopy of large tropical trees.
If you’re looking for a great starter plant, I'm the perfect choice to ease you into the exciting new world of indoor gardening.
