Philodendron Hastatum is an exotic, unique, and low maintenance houseplant. This hard-to-find Philodendron produces Glossy leaves that produce peculiar lobes as the plant matures. Providing a totem for the ariel roots to attach to will encourage larger leaves at a faster rate. They only require bright, indirect light and weekly waterings. They will grow more quickly if provided with extra humidity. 


Philodendron grow very well outdoors, but they are not winter hardy and should be brought inside once temperatures dip below 55 degrees. Spring through Fall, keep your Philodendron in Full to Partial Shade and make sure it is not receiving any hot, direct sun. Water once your plant has had a chance to dry out, usually about every 4-5 days outdoors with moderate temperatures. During periods of extreme heat, you may need to water your Philodendron every 2-3 days.
