The Philodendron Subhastatum is especially loved for being an ornamental plant due to its bi-foliage leaves. While the front sides of the leaves are green in color, the backsides of the leaves are red, which gets redder as the plant ages.
Known to be a climber, Philodendron Subhastatum can be used for wall decorations as well as pole decorations. This means your Philodendron does not need to simply sit in a pot.
While the philodendron does add to the room’s ambiance, it is also known to be a great air purifier, thanks to its filtering characteristics. The plant can absorb various chemicals like formaldehyde, ammonia, xylene, and et cetera – thereby becoming an important part of your indoor lifestyle.
The plant has very sensitive leaves that get easily burned when placed under direct sunlight. The go-to light type for a Philodendron Subhastatum is usually described as natural and filtered. In some parts of the world, natural sunlight may not be readily available. Under such conditions, you may grow your Philodendron Subhastatum under artificial growing lights.
The Philodendron Subhastatum is a water-loving plant. Make sure that the top part of the soil is dry at least 2 inches on the top layer between waterings. This plant loves high humidity.
