What is a Philodendron scandens with a moss pole?

The Philodendron scandens, also known as a Sweetheart plant, with moss pole is an extra-large Philodendron scandens supported by a pole. Like all our live plants, it comes from our live plant suppliers who grow live plants in carefully controlled conditions to get the absolute best from them. This indoor plant looks incredible and is easy to care for, needing only occasional misting at each leaf node to thrive and avoid root rot. It's important to note that Philodendron scandens are toxic to cats, other animals and humans, so they should be kept out of the reach of children and pets.

Why should I buy a Philodendron scandens with a moss pole?

Philodendron scandens have become extremely popular in recent years, they are often given as romantic gifts due to their reputation as the 'Sweetheart plant'. They are verdant, lush and can be completed with a decorative pot to make brilliant house plants. However, if you have a terrarium or vivarium you can take your Philodendron scandens to the next level by encouraging further growth under fluorescent light and humid conditions, helping mature plants reach heights of almost 4 metres during the growing season. Philodendron will even climb up backgrounds and pieces of wood to provide canopy cover in rainforest set-ups.

How do you take care of a Philodendron scandens?

Caring for a heart leaf Philodendron is fairly straightforward, for most of the year you just need to maintain a good level of moisture around the leaves and soil, avoiding a completely dry plant. As with many indoor plants, it's important that you keep this species out of any drafts, to avoid dry air. In the winter months, you will need to ensure your plant is kept warm as it is unable to survive in temperatures lower than 16C. As a native plant of South America, Philodendron is at its best in a terrarium with the right humidity and light conditions. It is also a trailing plant and will grow well from a hanging basket, where its long trailing stem can flow beneath it, otherwise, you will need to use a support structure, like the moss pole this species comes with, to support growth.
