Philodendron Hastatums are quite straightforward to care for, as long as you water them properly and their soil is well-drained. Make sure the topsoil (1-2 inches) is dry before you rewater the Silver Sword. An additional piece of advice – try to wipe or clean the leaves of your Hastatum. Maybe even rinse with water to keep them squeaky clean.
Many Philodendrons, including the Hastatum, enjoy sunlight but are not fond of direct sunlight so be cautious it does not touch the leaves of your plant friend as it can burn them quickly. The best solution would be to find a partly shaded spot, 70 to 85% sunlight, close to a window. Given the glossy foliage, the Hastatum can cope with lower light conditions, but this is not ideal. Now and then, it is common for the older leaves to become yellow but if this happens to several leaves it is a clear indication of too much light exposure. On the other hand, a sign of low light exposure is a leggy stem. We know some people prefer their plants looking sparser and with smaller leaves, but if you choose a spot with perfect lighting, your Hastatum’s foliage will grow thicker and closer together so it looks full and healthy.
