Philodendron Cordatum Plant Care
House Plants & Flowers


Philodendron has been in use as an indoor plant since Victorian times and is still a popular houseplant today. I have included it on my best houseplants list because of its tolerance of lower light and ease of care.

While there are many different types of Philodendron, the most commonly seen and used indoors is the Philodendron Cordatum, sometimes called Sweetheart Vine or Heart Leaf Philodendron.

Heart-Leaf Ivy Plant

Philodendron Cordatum has heart-shaped, green leaves that are typically about 2-3 inches across although they will grow much larger outdoors. A trailing or a climbing plant, Philodendron Cordatum is the Philodendron variety most often used as an interior houseplant.

Cordatum is one of the vining, climbing types of philodendron and is ideally used as a hanging plant or table plant. Its small size also make it perfect for planting in dishgardens or terrariums.

How to Water

Philodendron Cordatum should be allowed to dry down completely in low to medium light but not to point of wilting. In bright light, allow soil to dry down at least 1/2 to 3/4 of its depth. Please see the sections on watering and lighting for your indoor plants, as these most affect your houseplants health and growth.

Other Plant Care Tips

Philodendron Cordatum will do best if placed in very bright, indirect light. Keep out of direct sun, bright diffused light is preferable. Most philodendrons plants will survive in lower light but, as with most other plants, will becomes leggy under lower light conditions. Additional light from a fluorescent light is suitable if available.

Philodendron Cordatum should be kept at temperatures between 65°F and 80°F, so normal home temperatures suit it well. While it will do well in normal home conditions, Philodendron Cordatum will benefit from having additional humidity. You can provide extra humidity by placing on humidity trays or grouping with other house plants.

Philodendron Cordatum is a trailing plant but can develop aerial roots and attach itself to wood, walls etc. and climb. This is most likely if there is an abundance of humidity in the air. It is a fairly fast growing plant if cared for correctly.

To keep it full, cut back the longest of your Cordatum plant's vines occasionally to encourage new growth. Remove any leaves that become discolored or faded. If you are watering properly and the light is good, you should get some side shoots to fill the plant out.
