Habitat: Above 55°F

It prefers warm temperatures between 65-80°F but can tolerate slightly cooler conditions. It is important to protect it from direct sunlight, as it can cause leaf burn.

Maximum Size: Up to 4' Plus

Philodendron hastatum "Silver Sword" can grow up to several feet in height, typically reaching around 2-4 feet indoors, depending on the conditions and care provided.

Space / Planter Size: Medium

The space needed for this plant depends on its growth and the size of the container. Philodendron hastatum "Silver Sword" has a tendency to vine, so it benefits from having some vertical space to climb or trail. If you provide a trellis or moss pole for support, it can grow upwards, taking less horizontal space. If you allow it to trail, it will need more horizontal space to spread out. It's important to note that as the plant matures, it can occupy a larger area.


In its natural habitat, this plant typically grows as an epiphyte, meaning it attaches itself to trees or other supports and derives nutrients from the air and rainwater. It thrives in warm, humid environments.

Plant Care

Besides its ornamental value, Philodendron hastatum is known for its air-purifying properties. It helps remove harmful toxins from the air, making it a beneficial addition to indoor spaces.

Water: Moderate

This plant prefers consistently moist soil, but it should not be overwatered. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again. Maintaining higher humidity levels, either through regular misting or by placing the plant on a tray with water and pebbles, can promote healthy growth.

Sun: Bright, Indirect

Philodendron hastatum "Silver Sword" prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some morning or evening sun, but direct sunlight should be avoided as it can scorch the leaves. If the plant is not receiving enough light, its foliage may become less vibrant.

Care Level: Moderate

This plant is generally considered to have a moderate care level. It requires some attention, but it is not overly demanding.
