This boldly coloured houseplant is ideal if you're looking to add a splash of colour to your decor. As this rare and beautiful tropical plant bears bright golden yellow paddle-like foliage, it is also known as the lemon-lime philodendron.
Among deeper green foliage, this Philodendron is not only striking to look at but is also easy to care for, requiring very little attention for it to look its best. Fast-growing, it can reach two meters tall if provided with a moss pole or allow the plant to cascade over the edge of a hanging planter for a trailing splash of colour.
You can pair this houseplant with a flattering planter or cover pot that will let the striking yellow foliage be the focal point. The Philodendron Malay Gold is a great specimen for a tabletop or desk feature when young, and becomes an outstanding floor display when mature.
You should provide consistent moisture to your Philodendron Lemon-lime, without keeping the potting soil soggy. In addition, it grows best in bright, filtered light and is tolerant of moderate to high humidity levels.
A nice thing about this plant is that it'll not only look good, but it'll also purify the air for you. It is one of the best plants for eliminating common household toxins, leaving your home or office feeling lush and clean.
Please note: Philodendron should be kept out of reach of children and pets.
