Heartleaf Philodendron

Scandens oxycardium
Philodendron cordatum Sweetheart Philodendron

There are over 200 different varieties of philodendron plants that come in different sizes, colors, and leaf shapes. The heartleaf or sweetheart philodendron has dark green, shiny, heart-shaped leaves and looks great as a table or hanging plant. Heartleaf philodendrons are some of the most popular indoor plants we use in homes and offices because they thrive on neglect and are almost impossible to kill. Another great plus, philodendron plants remove air-born toxins such as formaldehyde from the air.

All philodendron are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants
