Philodendron hederaceum 'Lemon Lime' is a beautiful and bright cultivar of the classic Heartleaf Philodendron with chartreuse foliage. True to its name, Lemon Lime Philodendron is an eye feasting tropical plant known for its bright hues and beautiful appearance. It belongs to the family Araceae of the Kingdom Plantae. The plant has beautiful heart-shaped leaves that look stunning because of their bright greenish-yellow color. They are vastly used in indoor settings to bring life to an overall casual setup. Philodendron Hederaceum lemon lime is also significant in demand because it is effortless to grow and maintain. Thus, the species is an all-rounder in the category of houseplants! Tolerant of a wide range of light conditions, this plant is a prolific grower, producing long cascading vines that can easily reach the floor. Like its close relative the standard green Heartleaf Philodendron, Philodendron 'Lemon Lime' is extremely easy to grow - no green thumb required.  

Light: It requires 75-80% exposure to sunlight throughout the day. This light must always be bright but not direct, which is why it is preferable to keep these plants in a shady area where sunlight can reach them indirectly, such as the windowpane or some shelf near the window. The plant is lenient in terms of sunlight and can grow well even when the exposure is low. Direct sunlight is more likely to burn the plant’s foliage, and dramatic change in the leaves’ color may indicate direct or extra bright sunlight hitting its surface.

Watering: Lemon lime heartleaf philodendron requires a minimal amount of water. During the summer and spring season, the plant must be watered when the soil is semi-dry. However, during the winters, it must be watered when 50% of topmost soil gets dry. Extremely less watering leads to the brown leaves and overwatering results in yellow leaves.

 

Like other species of this family, lemon lime philodendron is toxic to humans and pets as it contains calcium oxalate crystals. It can cause lips swelling, upset stomach, vomiting, allergic reaction to eyes, esophagus, and throat if ingested by living beings.
