Lemon Lime Philodendrons are the perfect choice to add a pop of colour to your home. Their brightly-coloured leaves grow to be about 7-10 inches long, and emerge a lemony yellow colour, before turning to a bright lime green as they age.
Height: 12in - 36in
Spread: 10in - 18in
Pet Safe: Mildly toxic to pets if ingested.
CareGeneral Maintenance: Ensure your pot has adequate drainage to avoid root rot. Repot every 1-2 years as needed. Trim away any dead leaves as necessary. Easily propagated from cuttings with nodes.
Temperature: Thrives in normal household temperatures, between 15º-26º Celsius. Keep away from drafts and drastic temperature changes.
Light: Can tolerate lower light conditions, but will grow fastest in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it may scorch the leaves.
Watering: Water thoroughly, then allow the top 50% of the soil to dry before watering again. Yellow leaves may indicate overwatering, while brown leaves may indicate that your plant needs more water.
Soil: Any well-draining potting mix.
Fertilizer: Philodendrons are not heavy feeders, but will benefit from a balanced houseplant fertilizer every 3 weeks or so, during the spring and summer.
