About Burle Marx
Philodendrons grow aerial roots that grip the bark of trees, allowing them to grow over 20 feet tall! Their leaves change shape as they climb and can grow larger than a dinner plate. Fossils show Philodendrons growing as far back as 30 million years ago when South America was still connected to Antarctica! ❄️

How to care for Burle Marx
Burle Marx needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.

Burle Marx can tolerate being far from a window and light source.
Place it less than 6 feet from a south-facing window to ensure it receives enough light to survive 💪.
Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Burle Marx in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Burle Marx after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
It loves sun about the same as an elephant ear, so if you like elephant ears, this is a great way to break into philodendrons! Bonus points for being gorgeous. Sleek, deep green leaves of a pleasant shape, new growths are a delicate and vibrant green, and stems sometimes have a pinkish blush. One of my favorites!
