Philodendron 'Silver Dust'

Out of Stock

Why We Love It

A new cultivar of the Silver Sword, this is an uncommon Philodendron with characteristic, smooth, silvery leaves. Cultivated hybrid of Philodendron Hastatum, whose origins are in Brazil.

  • Alluded to by its name, foliage is dusted with speckles of silver which gives it a glittery appearance.
  • Easy care.
  • Tolerant of lower light conditions.

Growth pattern: Tree vining

Water: When the top 4-5cm of soil becomes dry.

Ideal Position: North or east facing

Light: Medium or bright, indirect light.

Humidity disclaimer: This plant will grow well outside of a terrarium or cabinet. However, all tropical plants thrive with higher humidity levels. To achieve this we suggest grouping plants together, or putting them in a bathroom or kitchen which gets regular use.

Planting and Care

Into a Pot

If you're planting into a pot or container, have a hand trowel and a watering tool ready, plus a container larger than the one your plant arrived in.

  1. Pour a small amount of soil at the bottom of your chosen container.
  2. Put the plant in place and then back-fill soil around the rootball.
  3. Lightly water after repotting. The soil should be just damp enough that if you press your forefinger into the soil it is moist above the top of your nail.
  4. Regularly check the soil is moist but not soaking or sitting in water.
  5. Make sure to place your plant away from any harsh drafts.
