Plant Highlight: Philodendron Silver Sword🌱
This plant 🀩 like the name says it literally has a silver shimmery color to it. I have like 7 of these at home πŸ˜‚ what a fun plant to watch grow. It can kind of trail or climb and the leaves get can get SO BIG! I have one climbing up a piece of wood right now.

β˜€οΈ Moderate to bright indirect. Different light levels will determine the size of the leaves I’ve noticed. They love the deep shade outside! North or east facing window is probably the best!
πŸ’§ Depending in what Greg says of course. But they don’t mind getting a little dry, or staying a little damp. They grow in the rainforest soooo
☁️ Avg house hold humidity is totally ok for these guys but higher is what they’re most used to
🧽 Wipe the leaves carefully with soapy water as well as checking under the leaves for pests. The foliage is super delicate so use microfiber cloth. The underside is the most important to wipe though
🌸 They do give flowers. I’ve never seen them but it’s similar to an Alocasia flower
πŸ‘Ά Propagation by cuttings or nodes. SUPER EASY.
πŸ’© Definitely fertilize on a regular basis and repot as needed.

Lemme see your Silver Swords!

Mine has grown so fast I had to buy a new moss pole after 4 months of growth !!
Yours is beautiful! Mine did not do well with the traveling and I’m trying to propagate a piece of it. The #PothosWater helped me get a root already 😊

@angelatwong haha they’re nice! I haven’t seen them recently in local shops but I recommend looking cause they don’t like being shipped
@jcPlantProper oooo good to know thanks!! I’ve seen them around in seattle within the past couple months so 🀞🏼
Yeah. It was a cutting with one leaf so I do know what it is. But I'm putting in a lot of work for this thing πŸ˜‚
