Silver Philodendron Plant Care
House Plants & Flowers


In use as an indoor house plant since Victorian times, Philodendron is still a very popular indoor plant today. Most commonly seen is the Philodendron cordatum, sometimes called Sweetheart Plant or Heart Leaf Philodendron. A long-time favorite, it has heart-shaped, green leaves that will trail off the edge of a shelf or climb, using its aerial roots.

Philodendron Silver
Indoor House Plant

Philodendron Silver plant is similar to Philodendron cordatum but has thicker, smaller leaves with a margin of silver. The leaf surface of this lovely foliage plant is splashed with silver markings. It is very similar in appearance to the Pothos Silver Splash so don't confuse the two plants.

Philodendron Silver is one of the vining, climbing types of philodendron and can be used as a hanging plant, climbing plant or table plant. The small size of Philodendron 'Silver' makes it ideal for planting in dishgardens or terrariums.

You can send a plant care question but before you do, please read this page and further information on watering your indoor plants, how to tips to help keep your house plant's root system healthy and lighting for your house plants. These are most important for your house plant's health and this is some of the information I will refer you to when you send an email. See page footer for contact page link.

Philodendron plants are not cold tolerant and temperatures for Philodendron Silver should be kept between 65°F and 80°F, average household temperatures are fine.

Philodendron Silver plant should be placed in medium to bright, indirect lighting. Keep out of direct sun, bright diffused light is preferable. Most philodendrons 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 beneficial, if available.

How to Water

In good lighting, water Philodendron Silver when the soil has dried down about half of the grow pot. It will not do well if kept too moist for a long period of time. Be sure not to overwater. In low light, allow to dry almost completely before watering. Please see the sections on watering indoor house plants and lighting for your indoor house plants for information on the most important parts of your plants health.

Other Care Tips

Philodendron Silver is a trailing plant and will often 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.

Keep your Philodendron Silver in average household temperatures, ideally between 65°F and 80°F. This is not a cold tolerant house plant but a few degrees variation from 65°F to 80°F should not be a big problem.

The best light levels to keep your house plant in is bright, indirect natural light. Read more about the light requirements for your indoor house plants.

Keep your Philodendron Silver houseplant full by cutting back the longest of its 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.

It is a good idea to quarantine any new additions to your houseplant family for a few weeks just to be sure there are not any insects that were not noticed at first. Wash down your new houseplant with a mixture of water and mild dish detergent. I like to add a few drops of Eucalyptus essential oil to my plant cleaning solution. Apply to top and lower leaf and stem surfaces being careful not to saturate the soil. You can clean by hand or use a spray bottle to apply your plant cleaning solution. I use a sponge saturated with my cleaning solution to wipe the top and lower leaf surfaces. Cleaning of your houseplants should be a regular part of your houseplant care.
