Philodendron cordatum

Heart Leaf Philodendron
Family: Araceae
Origin: Brazil
Vine or creeperSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular water

This name is often mistakenly applied to the popular houseplant Philodendron hederaceum, the Ivy Philodendron. While "cordatum" means heart-shaped and both species have heart-shaped leaves the species name cannot be applied to the Ivy Philodendron.

Philodendron cordatum has two growth phases, the juvenile form and the mature form, which often appear very different in leaf size and shape. Juvenile Philodendron cordatum leaves are very similar to Philodendron hederaceum leaves.
