A beautiful and large specimen Philodendron Hastatum silver sword. These somewhat rare philodendrons are popular with collectors for their smooth, glossy, silvery, almost metallic, green leaves and the ease with which they grow. Philodendron Hastatum are vigorous, climbing plants that are easy to care for, strong, and rewarding. Hastatum are perfect plants to attach to a moss pole.
Originating from Brazil, these plants have become increasingly rare in the wild due to habitat destruction, but are popular as cultivated collector plants. They are very easy to care for, somewhat resilient plants and highly recommended for anyone looking for a climbing philodendron species.
