Its trailing vines feature dark green heart-shaped leaves with strokes of lime green.

The Philodendron Brasil, Philodendron hederaceum 'Brasil,' is a cultivar of the heartleaf philodendron, a species in the family Araceae that is native to tropical South America. It is a fast-growing vine that can trail or be trained to climb and is known for the lime-colored variegation that its dark leaves take on when regularly exposed to indirect bright light. (These are colors of the Brazilian flag, hence its name!) The easy-care plant is happiest when watered every 1-2 weeks in the spring and summer, and less frequently in the fall and winter. It also prefers a somewhat humid and warm home (65–78°F during the day) and will not tolerate cold drafts. If your Philodendron Brasil gets leggy or its leaves start yellowing, trim back the stems to just above the nodes to encourage new growth.
