It's #PhilodendronFriday, and we're wondering- what do you think we should do with these tall guys!?

Philodendron hederaceum, or the heartleaf philodendron, is super easy to grow and is a climbing plant, making it a great one to grow on a totem!

☀️ Tolerant of different light levels, but thrives in medium indirect light.
💧 Keep soil moist, allowing the top layer of soil to dry out between watering.
🌡Keep in average room temperatures, will tolerate a minimum temperature of 60 degrees F.

TGIF everyone! 🤜🤛

We're kicking off the year with #PhilodendronFridays! Starting 2022 with the Philodendron Xanadu. (Yes, because it rhymes, but also because we're obsessed with this gorgeous plant!)

These are great indoor plants with stunning foliage, growing between 2-4 ft. tall - a great option when there's not a ton of growing space. Here's what the Xanadu needs to thrive:

☀️ Medium to bright indirect sunlight

💧 Water thoroughly until the water drains out of the bottom of the pot, and then allow the top 50% of soil to dry out before watering again. Leaves turn yellow if the soil stays too wet. A Xanadu grows more slowly in the winter and requires less frequent watering.

🌡Keep in warm temperatures above 55 degrees

Seasonal rotations mean your exterior planters will be just as lively in winter as in every other season!

Right now, we're enjoying the muted tones of winter
and cold-hardy plants, like holly, winterberries, and
evergreens. Check out the winter plantings around

Looks like someone got a recent refresh! Keeping your interiors lush and green with the #powerofplants

We love the way the garden beds are designed reciprocally to the lighting shapes in the ceiling above, giving the plants the light they need and keeping the focus in the room on the greenery.

The best things about working at Cityscapes is the teamwork I experience daily, the relationships I have developed, and the fact that Cityscapes really cares about their employees. We also create an atmosphere together to improve our clients lives and our mission is to inspire and innovate with beautifully designed greenery.

Alex Masella, Employee 26 years / Service Representative

Managing one of Boston’s more iconic buildings is no small feat. The responsibility of up-keeping greenery that is as beautiful as the architecture around us is huge. Having Cityscapes come and design our planting beds and maintain our greenery inside and out, has made my life a breeze. I know I can count on them to perform up to my standards, while keeping everything fresh and innovative.

Brookview serves mothers and children experiencing a grueling and challenging circumstance–homelessness. Jan Goodman and her Cityscapes volunteers always lift our spirits, and make our days delightful and enjoyable. Whether they are working with the moms and kids making crafts and decorations for holidays, planting a vegetable garden, or doing exterior landscaping–their creativity elicits laughter, brings joy to our hearts, and welcomes us home. We always look forward to spending time with the Cityscapes team.

Deborah Hughes, CEO / Brookview
