There is something wildly beautiful about the Silver Swords almost mirror-like foliage making this houseplant incredibly appealing to all plant lovers the world over. It may also be that this is one of the ultimate fuss-free houseplants proving to be perfect for the novice plant lover.

This Philodendron is a fast climber and will require some form of support as it journeys upwards, such as a moss pole, although they can be left to hang. These easy-care tropical plants do well both indoors as well as on a sheltered patio or balcony, as long as you are providing them with moist organic-rich soil and bright indirect light they will flourish. Know, that like many Philodendron species, these plants can get relatively large and as they mature their leaves become more arrow-like.

Philodendron Hastatum has beautiful accented silvery-blue foliage that will add a sensational tropical appeal to any brightly lit space or looks gorgeous cascading out of a hanging planter. As with many other Philodendron varieties the Silver Sword can also happily live in medium light conditions, this will affect growth speed but is a great way to keep it at a manageable size for longer.

So, if you are looking for something that will create impact at home or even in your office, the Philodendron Silver Sword is the way to go. Pair this beauty with a classic planter and it will add that nuance of a true jungle within any aspiring urban jungle space. 

Please note: Philodendron is Toxic to pets and humans.
