Philodendron Silver Sword

Philodendron Silver Sword

Silver Sword Philodendron native to the tropical forests of Brazil, is an attractive vining plant
with silver lance-like leaves. Younger plant’s foliage has a more pronounced silver color and
sword shape — as the plant grows, it takes on a greener color and a more arrowhead-like
form. Silver Swords are fast growers. When given structural support to climb onto, these
plants grow quicker and develop larger leaves. A hanging Philodendron Silver Sword is

This climber will not only beautify your home but also improve air quality. Philodendrons are
great at absorbing toxins from the air. Their leaves are covered in tiny pores which take in
carbon dioxide and release oxygen. If you are constantly in dry spaces like air-conditioned
offices or suffer from respiratory problems, this plant will definitely help!
Like other Philodendrons, the Silver Swords prefer loose and well-draining soil, where water
can easily pass through. Best to be watered twice or three times a week during the growing
season, reduce it to once a week in the colder months. Always check that the top 1-2 inches
of the soil is dry between waterings. The soil needs to be moist but not wet to prevent root
Tropical plants are used to warm environments so they appreciate temperatures between
650F and 800F, so it’s a good idea to bring them inside during the colder months. Place it in
a bright area but away from direct sunlight, otherwise the leaves will burn quickly.
If you notice any dust or debris on the leaves, clear it with a clean cloth, however it likes the
occasional shower, to get the dust off the leaves and get refreshed.
During the growing season it should be fed monthly with a fertilizer rich in macronutrients.
When you see roots filling out the bottom of the pot, it’s time to repot your Silver Sword.
If it’s understated sophistication you’re after, there’s no better plant for you than the
Philodendron Silver Sword.
