The Philodendron Subhastatum is a rare Philodendron species with narrow elongated leaves and a particularly deep red at the bottom.
Despite its rarity, this Philodendron is pretty much as easy to care for as other more common Philodendrons. Although it prefers bright, indirect light it can adapt to most lighting situation. It isn’t overly thirsty and is happy for its top soil to dry out between waterings.
The Philodendron Subhastatum will naturally try to climb upwards, because of this it is best supported with a moss pole or plant stake.
This easy to care for plant is one of the most popular houseplants. In tropical regions it can survive outside, however in most places it is used strictly as a houseplant. While blooms on this fast-growing climber may appear at any time during the year most plants in confinement never bloom. The Philodendron is an evergreen vine that thrives in partial shade at moderate temperatures.
