Q.Heart-Leaf Philodendron

Zone New York | cloures added on November 27, 2017 | Answered

I have a Heart-Shapred Philodendron (Philodendron Cordatum) that has been very healthy and growing super long vines about 20 feet long). However the past few months it has started to loose leaves..at first I thought it was normal but now large sections of the vines do not have any leaves at all. It is still growing on the ends but the vines are almost bare. The leave turn yellow and then fall off. The ends of the vines look the healthiest. Not sure what to do! Thank you! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The most common causes for this are lack of proper lighting, and over watering. These are somewhat drought tolerant and will enjoy a short dry period between watering.
