Description for Philodendron Cordatum (Green, Hanging basket)

Philodendron is an evergreen climber, with heart-shaped glossy leaves long leaf-stalk. The leaves have extremely pointed tips. The leaves look slightly brownish and almost transparent when they are emerging, but they quickly become deep green as they grow to maturity.

Twining stems of this plant will either trail from a pot or climb up a column if given support. Spathes of white flowers appear in mature plants and flowers infrequently appear on mature indoor plants.
