Keep on shining.

The Philodendron Silver Spear is a rare and sought-after plant that thrives in shady areas of the garden or indoors as a houseplant. It can tolerate cooler temperatures (although not frost) and like most Philodendrons, is really laid back in terms of needs. Just let those silvery metallic leaves shine!

Caring for Silvia

Light

Prefers bright light indoors, but does not enjoy afternoon sun. Can grow outdoors in shade. 

Water & humidity

Give it a deep watering 1-2 times a week in summer, letting the water drain out the bottom of the grow pot. Allow the top 20% of soil to dry out between watering, Philodendrons don't like to have wet feet. They're not too phased about humidity.

Feeding

Once every two months in summer with a balanced fertiliser. Do not feed in winter.

Re-potting

Re-pot every 2 years if necessary to one pot size up. These plants like being root bound. Normal potting soil will do.

Atrium Top Tip

Too much water will cause the leaves to turn yellow. Too little water will cause the leaves to turn brown and fall off.

Plant fact

Philodendron is a member of the Araceae (Arum) family and originates from the Caribbean, Colombia and Venezuela.
