Philodendron 'Lemon Lime'

The two popular types of Philodendron are climbers and non-climbing varieties. The climbers, are suited to the average room as long as you provide firm support for the stems. The climbing Philodendrons produce aerial roots from the stems. Most of the non-climbers are capable of growing into immense plants with large, deeply lobed leaves. These are more suited to buildings with large open spaces. Average wamth is required, not less than 55F in winter. 'Lemon Lime' has long golden yellow-green or lime-green foliage and is a climbing philodendron (NOTE - not to be confused with a similar named cultivar of the Heart Leaf Philodendron, called Philodendron hederaceum 'Aureum', or Philodendron hederaceum 'Lemon Lime' which has more heart shaped leaves).

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant in a location with bright, indirect sunlight. Position near to a window where direct sunlight cannot touch the foliage. If the plant gets too much light, the leaves will begin to turn yellow. If the stems are long and leggy without plenty of leaves, the plant is most likely to be receiving insufficient light.

 

Propagation

From Early Summer TO Late Summer

Cuttings require warm conditions. In summer, take stem cuttings or air layer the climbing varieties. With non-climbing varieties, shoots taken from the base of the stem can be used as cuttings.
