The Philodendron hastatum is native to Colombia and this variety is commonly called the Silver Sword. This easy to care for plant can adapt to all kinds of conditions (as long as its warm), making it a popular houseplant.
The Silver Sword has large silver, almost metallic-looking foliage. The juvenile leaves on the Silver Sword start as a pale metallic grey and become a deeper blue colour as the plant matures.
Prefers indirect light to bright light. Keep moist over the warmer months. Reduce watering in the cooler months and allow the plant to dry longer between watering. Can adapt to drier conditions. Feed with slow-release fertiliser once every month (refers to packaging for dosage).In the warmer months, feed twice with a liquid fertiliser. Ideally kept in a cool to warm temperature environment.
