Philodendron Silver Sword



En garde! For thou who speak of another plant shall feel the raft of my sword... Oh sorry, I was just pretending I was a swashbuckling musketeer of the indoor plants. You can forgive me for thinking so with my sparkling silvery, sword shaped leaves. Obviously, I'm very passionate, so some light watering will do just fine when I get a little too heated.

Key attributes

This popular indoor plant has large silver, almost metallic-looking leaves. The new leaves on the Silver Sword start as a pale metallic grey and become a deeper blue colour as the plant matures. Naturally it is a clumping plant but it can be planted on to one of our totems or left to drape over the edge of the pot.

  • Bright, indirect, filtered sunlight.
  • Water moderately, allow the top 3cm of soil to dry.
  • Not so pet friendly.

Your new Philodendron Silver Sword comes in two sizes and could grow up to approximately 3m in height.

Medium: 15cm-25cm in height. Planted in a 140mm black nursery pot.

Large: 30cm-50cm in height. Planted on an ironbark totem in a 200mm black nursery pot.

Please note our decorative pots are sold separately.

Care mode

Keep moist during the warmer month periods and generally drier during the winter cooler months. The more variegation the leaf has, the more sensitive it is to bright sunlight.

Feeding your indoor plants

Don’t let your plants get hangry! To get the best out of your plants, you will need to feed them some food. A good balanced fertiliser (plant food) will provide plants with all the nutrients they need to grow more leaves and help them stay strong. When the plant is actively growing during the warmer months, it needs a bit more food and water. During the slow growing season (cooler winter months) your plant doesn’t eat or drink as much (no extra winter layer of fat for these babies). Fertiliser (plant food) can be applied as granular slow release pellets or as a liquid. A bit more chilled out about your plants? Some granular products last 3-6 months which make them ideal for indoor plants and busy people. Hard-core plant-mum? Liquid fertiliser maybe be best as it gives you better control over the amount fed and when. Obviously, follow the label on your preferred fertiliser (plant food) for your baby. Sometimes it’s ok to be a helicopter parent – respond to your plant’s needs. Moral of the story, if it is grow

We take great care in growing, packaging, and shipping your new plants so they’re ready to thrive in your home. This includes keeping them safe while they travel from our wholesale nursery to your doorstep.
