About the plant: Philodendrons, or simply philodendrons, are plants from the Araceae family. It comes from the rainforests of Central and South America. Philodendron scandens typically has heart-shaped leaves. This species has velvety soft leaves. Unlike the others already mentioned, this robust perennial herb has an interesting way of life. In tropical America, it is commonly found in treetops, on rocks or in swamps. We can ensure a similar life for them in domestic conditions as well, if we give them some support in the flowerpot, which they could also climb on, e.g. a coconut stick, otherwise we let them flow freely from, for example, a shelf. An interesting feature of the life of philodendrons is the temperature reached during pollination - scientists measured an incredible 43 °C

Every plant is different, just like us humans. Please allow for a possible deviation in appearance compared to the product photo.
Because even in its country of origin it lives attached to trees in the forest, it does not need too much light even at home. Brighter diffused light will do, but certainly not direct sunlight, which could burn the leaves.
It is propagated by top or stem cuttings, which are best cut in spring. If the plant is mature enough, even a cut will benefit it and make it thicker. Let the cuttings take root in water or in a mixture of peat and sand at approx. 20 - 25 °C.
