Philodendron hederaceum 'Lemon Lime' is a beautiful and bright cultivar of the classic Heartleaf Philodendron with chartreuse foliage. Its leaves emerge an electric pinkish yellow, developing to a deep lemon and finally to lime green as they age. Tolerant of a wide range of light conditions, this plant is a prolific grower, producing long cascading vines that can easily reach the floor. Like its close relative the standard green Heartleaf Philodendron, Philodendron 'Lemon Lime' is extremely easy to grow - no green thumb required.  

Care

Light: Philodendrons do well in a range of light conditions. They prefer moderate to bright indirect light, but can tolerate shadier lighting conditions as well. Avoid direct sunlight.

Water: Keep the soil moist at all times. Allow 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.

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.

Soil/Repotting: Well draining, nutrient rich potting soil.

Care Tips: Wipe leaves with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust. Please note, leaves can develop yellow patches after a change in temperature or environment. These can be removed at the base of the stem if required
