The plant of the week is the Philodendron Silver Sword. This plant has beautiful, glossy silver foliage. The leaves come to a point, similar to a sword. They are a climbing vine with thick stems, so having a trellis/moss pole for it will help it grow big leaves.

Philodendrons are tropical plants, and they will thrive when they receive high levels of humidity. The best way to do this is by placing them near a humidifier.

Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry and make sure to soak the plant until water drips out the bottom. Place in bright, indirect light. An eastern facing window will provide morning light that will not be harsh for your plants leaves, unlike harsh afternoon sunlight.

Be mindful that this plant is toxic to cats and dogs.
