The Cream Splash is also refferred to as the Brasil TriColor, or the Variegated Brasil. This variation of the P. Brasil features a variegation pattern of light green, cream, to dark green towards the outside of the leaf. The "line" between the Philodendron Cream Splash and Silver Stripe can be challenging to pick apart to the untrained eye, but all the more worthwhile to be able to stop the differences in the twins without hesitation. The Silver Stripe and the Cream Splash are direct descendants of the Philodendron "Brasil", which I thought I couldn't love any more before I saw these subtle yet stunning adjustments to a staple of mine. 

The Variations of the Heart Leaf Philodendrons can be a bit tricky to follow, but from what I understand the Sweetheart, Lemon Lime, Brasil, Silver Stripe and Cream Splash are all very closely related with varying variegation patterns. The Gabby and the Rio, however seemingly similar looking, are selectively cultivated, finding themselves in a category all on their own. Take a look for the entire family, and see if you can get your hands on all of them!

Care

Light: Your Cream Splash, like the Brasil and others in their family, will tolerate low light but prefers bright, indirect light to yield the best growth potential. 

WaterAllow the top of the soil to dry out slightly before re-watering. Will tolerate some degree of drought better than having its roots too wet. Never allow the pot to sit in water, prone to root rot.

Temperature/Humidity Average to warm household temperatures from 18-28°C and short periods down to 12°C at an absolute push. Avoid cold draughts. Comfortable in average household humidity.

Care TipsYour Cream Splash will work well as a hanging plant, or you can train him up a trellis or other support system. Feed every other week using a general-purpose, water-soluble fertilizer mixed to half strength.
