Philodendron Brasil 4 inch
The philodendron Brasil is a cultivator of the popular heartleaf philodendron and is characterized by its dark green, heart-shaped leaves with distinctive splashes of lime green variegation. Philodendron Brasil grows best in warm, humid conditions, requires bright, but indirect sunlight, acidic loamy soil, and fares best in temperatures consistently well above 60 degrees Fahrenheit. As a cultivator of the heartleaf philodendron, philodendron Brasil is considered mildly toxic to pets and humans.
Philodendron Brasil can survive in a range of lighting conditions but will show its variegation best in bright, indirect light. Low-light conditions will cause the variegation to begin reverting and may result in leggy growth. You should also avoid exposing your philodendron Brasil to prolonged periods of direct sunlight as this can burn the leaves.
Allow the top 2 to 3 inches of soil to dry out between waterings and then water well. Philodendron Brasil is sensitive to overwatering and should never be left in soggy soil for extended periods.
