Philodendron Silver
Houseplant Care


In use as an houseplant since Victorian times, Philodendron is still a very popular indoor plant today. Most commonly seen is the Philodendron Cordatum, sometimes called Sweetheart Plant. A long-time favorite, it has heart-shaped, green leaves that will trail off the edge of a shelf or climb, using its aerial roots.

Philodendron Silver is similar but has thicker, smaller leaves with a margin of silver. The leaf surface of this lovely foliage plant is splashed with silver markings. It is very similar in appearance to the Pothos Silver Splash so don't confuse the two plants.

One of the vining, climbing types of philodendron, the Philodendron Silver and can be used as a hanging plant or table plant. Its small size makes it ideal for planting in dishgardens or terrariums.

Philodendron Silver should be placed in medium to bright, indirect lighting. Keep out of direct sun, bright diffused light is preferable. Most philodendrons will survive in lower light but, as with most other plants, will becomes leggy under lower light conditions. Additional light from a fluorescent light is beneficial, if available. Temperatures for Philodendron Silver should be kept between 65°F and 80°F.

Watering Philodendron Silver - In good lighting, water when the soil has dried down about half of the grow pot. It will not do well if kept too moist for a long period of time. Be sure not to overwater. In low light, allow to dry completely before watering. Please see the sections on watering and lighting for information on the most important part of your plants health.

Philodendron Silver is a trailing plant and will often develop aerial roots and attach itself to wood, walls etc. and climb. This is most likely if there is an abundance of humidity in the air. It is a fairly fast growing plant if cared for correctly.

Keep Philodendron Silver full by cutting back the longest of its vines occasionally to encourage new growth. Remove any leaves that become discolored or faded. If you are watering properly and the light is good, you should get some side shoots to help keep your plant's foliage full.
