Philodendron hederaceum changes its leaf size and shape as it matures. If it is grown in low light it may never change to the mature form. In the juvenile form the leaf is heart shaped and has a bronzy color and velvety texture. This is not the common glossy leaf form commonly grown as the "Heart leaf Philodendron". It is a vine and will hang down or grow up a support. It is sometimes called "Black Gold Philodendron" or "Velvet Philodendron". And it will sometimes be listed as Philodendron micans, miduhoi, or melanochrysum. This is a very easy to grow house plant and will tolerate low light. We sell the juvenile form.
Care of Philodendron hederaceum:

This plant is shipped in a 3.5 - 4 inch pot.
