About Philodendron Lemon Lime

Philodendron 'Lemon Lime' boasts delightful bright yellow foliage. 💛 Philodendrons grow aerial roots that grip the bark of trees, allowing them to grow over 20 feet tall! Their heart-shaped leaves change shape as they climb and can grow larger than a dinner plate. Fossils show Philodendrons growing as far back as 30 million years ago when South America was still connected to Antarctica! ❄️

Absolute favourite child! Grows super fast once it establishes and doesnt seem to mind under-watering.

Beautiful and easy philodendron. Not too dramatic if you forget to water for a day or two.

My first houseplant and SO resilient. Not picky about where you put them in the house and great for filling space visually

Make sure these babies get enough water! They’re easy to propagate so you have a good chance of saving them, but will wilt/drop leaves quickly without enough water

One of my favourite plants. It’s easy to propagate and a fast grower. I’ve found it’s also more tolerant of it’s light and watering requirements (it’s new growth isn’t orange if it’s kept in a lower light area).

This is the first plant I bought because it was so striking.
I enjoy the other Pothos around the home but this one makes me happy.
