Scott, a Philodendron Scandens, Green Sweetheart Plant, or Heart-Leaf Philodendron is one of the most luscious hanging plants you’ll find. As you might have guessed, Scott’s leaves are heart-shaped and display a vibrant green colour.
Just like his cousin Brett, Scott can grow to astonishing lengths either as a climber or left trailing from a hanging pot or shelf. If you’re looking for that wow factor, try placing a few of Scott side by side to make a living curtain! If you’re lucky, Scott might even show off green-white flowers.
Scott, Philodendron Scandens
Scott prefers indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight wouldn’t go a miss.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
