Get to Know Philodendron Brasil!

Highlights

Characterized by dark green, heart-shaped leaves with splashes of variegation in shades of lime green, the Philodendron hederaceum 'Brasil' gained its common name due to its resemblance to the Brazilian flag.

As a cultivator of the heartleaf philodendron, philodendron Brasil are considered mildly toxic to pets and humans.

Watering

Water your Philodendron when the top 50%-75% of the soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.

Sunlight

The Philodendron Brasil can survive in low light conditions, but grows faster and produces more leaves in medium or bright indirect light. The variegation will be more pronounced in higher light. Do not put it in direct sunlight since the sun will burn the foliage.

Pet-Friendly?

Philodendron leaves are toxic to pets and humans.

Sad Plant (is your plant dying?)

CURLING LEAVES: Curling leaves are an indication that your plant is not receiving enough water. Ensure that you are watering once the top couple inches of soil have dried out, and avoid letting your plant sit in fully dry soil for too long.

BROWNING TIPS: Browning leaf tips can be a result of a couple of different things. Usually, it’s a result of your philodendron being exposed to overly dry conditions. Ensure that you don’t have an air vent blowing directly on the leaves, and consider providing your plant with extra humidity using a pebble tray or humidifier. Browning tips can also be a result of too much direct sunlight which has resulted in burnt leaves. Lastly, browning leaves can be a result of a lack of watering. Ensure that you don’t allow your Brasil to dry out too much between waterings.
