A classic trailing plant, the Heartleaf Philodendron is a firm favourite indoor plant. Beginner friendly and ideal for positions that only offer medium lighting levels where a touch of green will add the perfect finishing touch to a room. It is prized for its fast-growing nature and gorgeous deep green heart-shaped foliage.

This plant loves a little humidity but it isn't a must, to keep it thriving, and will grow in most indoor spaces without any hassle, be it your home or office. This incredibly versatile plant can be trained upwards to encourage larger leaves and a more uniform growth habit, or allowed to cascade to create a deep green curtain of hearts. Definitely worth a try!
