Get to Know Philodendron Silver Sword!

Highlights

Like a vine of interlocking blades, Philodendron hastatum feels like something right of a fantasy novel. The elegant foliage of this plant makes it a wonderful statement piece in the home and in terrariums alike.

Watering

Water your Silver Sword 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

Your Silver Sword prefers bright, indirect light. It will, however, survive in lower light and the leaves will turn a darker green. Direct sun or too much light will burn or fade the leaves.

Pet-Friendly?

Philodendron leaves are toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will result in swelling of the lips and tongue, and stomach irritation with possible vomiting.

Sad Plant (is your plant dying?)

BROWN EDGES: Leaves with brown, crispy edges are an indication that your plant is not getting enough moisture. Try moving your plant to a more humid location and providing it with a good watering.

DROOPING LEAVES: If you notice that the leaves of your philodendron's leaves are drooping, it usually means that the plant needs to be watered. After a good watering, the leaves should perk back up within a few hours.

LEGGY GROWTH: Since this philodendron is a climbing plant, it can start to look leggy over time if it is not receiving enough light. When a plant is leggy, its leaves are spaced far apart along the stem and the plant can look like it is reaching towards the nearest light source. Once the plant has started to look leggy, there is no way to reverse that type of growth. However, you should move your plant to a brighter location to prevent future growth.
