Philodendron has been in use as an indoor plant since Victorian times and is still a popular house plant today. I have included it on my because of its tolerance of lower light and ease of care.
While there are many different types of Philodendron, the most commonly seen and used indoors is the Philodendron Cordatum, sometimes called Sweetheart Vine or Heart Leaf Philodendron.
Philodendron Cordatum should be allowed to dry down completely in low to medium light but not to point of wilting. In bright light, allow soil to dry down at least 1/2 to 3/4 of its depth.
The Cordatums are grown in a non heated green house, so are hardened off and adjust to their new home's easily. Therefore fosil fuels aren't used in growing and this lessens the green house gas footprint.
