The Philodendron hastatum is native to Colombia and this variety is commonly called the Silver Sword. This easy to care for plant can adapt to all kinds of conditions (as long as its warm), making it a popular houseplant. The Silver Sword has large silver, almost metallic-looking foliage. The juvenile leaves on the Silver Sword start as a pale metallic grey and become a deeper blue colour as the plant matures. The Silver Sword doesn't require a lot of watering. Allow the top layer of soil to dry between watering. The Silver Sword thrive in humid conditions, so ensure you protect your plant from the frost. Position in bright, indirect sunlight. If your plant is indoors mist regularly, and wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to keep the foliage looking shiny and fresh.
