Philodendron Lemon Lime taille

The originality of this plant resides in its color, between a lemon and a lime with golden reflections. Serendipity gave birth to this variety, in 2004 in China.

  • Brightness Can handle moderate brightness
  • Humidity Moderate need in humidity
  • Growth stage Baby plant
  • Difficulty Killing it would be remarkable


Origin : South-American rainforests
Personality : Killing it would be a master move
Earmark : The whole plant, not only the leaves, gives the impression to be yellow
Say something smart : Philodendron Lemon Lime was born in China in 2004, while a breeder was trying to reproduce Philodendron Domesticum. This variety appeared as a spontaneous mutation, and was kept as a fully-fledged member of the Philodendron family.


Which container?

A planter usually looks nice, but we recommend not to plant your new baby directly in one.
Leave it in its current pot until Spring, then ideally transfer it into a terracota pot with little drain holes when it looks cramped.

Finding its place

Brightness : Good level of brightness, as close as possible from a window but no direct sun.
Avoid letting it feel draughts near the windows and take it away from heating sources.
Humidity : 60 % or more.
Tip : Spray its leaves with water (ideally rain-water) once a week. 
Tip 2 : Place some wet clay pebbles under the pot, so they keep diffusing humidity. 
Temperature : Min : 15°C | Max : 30°C | Ideal : 20-22°C

Day-to-day care

Watering (purely indicative, depends on your local environment): once a week in Spring/Summer, and once every 10 days in Autumn and Winter.
Tip : Put your knuckle in the ground. If it feels totally dry, add some water to keep the soil wet (but not soaking it). 
Fertilizer : Once every other week, from April to October
