Read on as we show you what you need to know about this amazing Burle Marx plant.

What is a Philodendron Burle Marx?

The Philodendron Burle Marx comes from the Araceae family, a low-growing shrub with heart-shaped and narrow leaves. Like other philodendron plants, it has glossy, dark green burle marx philodendron leaves filled with texture, donning the jungle-like and exotic foliage. It’s the rich texture that helps the plant adapt well to various environments!

Furthermore, its stem has a fun-looking, red color, adding to its exciting and tropical vibe. This climbing indoor plant can be pointed anywhere to grow in different areas however you prefer. For a more aesthetic look, you may also plant this in a hanging basket, then direct the stems that suit your home.

It also grows and spreads very quickly in the optimum growing environment, so if you’re not the patient gardener, you can enjoy a full-grown plant in no time. Just like other philodendrons, they have been very popular houseplants since the Victorian era.

Their ease of growth and propagation, along with their attractive beauty, are what make the philodendron such a popular plant to grow. Besides these, they are also known to help remove toxins from the air.

However, note that the plant contains high amounts of calcium oxalate crystals, which can negatively affect our body and immune system. Be sure to keep it out of reach from children and pets, and do NOT ingest any parts of this plant.

If you are looking for something a bit smaller to grow, then you’ll like this Philodendron Burle Marx. Some philodendrons can grow to over 6 feet tall, while this variety is small with a maximum height of 2 feet and maximum width of 2-4 feet.

Philodendron Burle Marx Care

When it comes to light, this plant requires bright and indirect light for it to thrive properly. While it can live in low light, it won’t grow as well as you would expect it to.

However, if your plant gets direct sunlight, it will burn your plant’s leaves as the light burns right through them. It will result in black scorch marks on your plant’s leaves or at least discolor them, turning yellow.

To give your plant indirect light, set it in an area where there is an east or north-facing window. This allows your plant to receive bright light that doesn’t sit under the sun.

Watering your Philodendron Burle Marx is similar to watering other philodendrons. The goal is to maintain its soil’s moisture and find the proper balance. You wouldn’t want to drench its soil, but you also shouldn’t dry it out.

If you overwater your plant, it will be at risk of various diseases, including root rot and other plant damage. If you see that you were overwatering your plant, you should take the plant out to see the root damage. If only small parts of the roots are in danger, prune the affected parts with a sterilized pruning tool. Unfortunately, if most parts of the root are in danger, there isn’t much that can be done to save it.

There are different watering requirements throughout the differing seasons. During the spring and summer, water it regularly (usually once a week or so) to maintain its moisture. However, when winter comes, you can allow the soil to dry out before watering your plant.
