Philodendron hederaceum or Brasil is native to South America and is a patented heart-leaf philodendron. The leaves look like they are colored in strokes of yellow and green, and resemble the flag of Brasil, hence the common name.
Often confused with Pothos, this variety is fairly tolerant and easy to care for. They are also a great indoor choice because they remove air-born toxins such as formaldehyde from the air.
Care and Maintenance
If you are new to planting this is a great plant to have. Just avoid direct sunlight and keep the soil a tiny bit moist, but not soggy.
This plant is not safe for pets.
