This Philodendron cultivar was discovered as a natural mutation by Tai Yam, they then went on to cultivate the plant by tissue culture. Leaves are oblanceolate in shape and vivid lime-green to yellow in colour. Petioles are light pink or yellow and the plant grows in an upright formation and remains bushy at the bottom. P.domesticum ‘Lemon Lime’ would benefit from a sphagnum moss pole as this would encourage climbing and provide support.
Pot: ø 12cm.
Height: Approximately 25cm from base of pot.
Light: Bright indirect light, meaning the plant sees the sun for 0-4 hours per day - this could be through trees or a translucent curtain, it’s important for the plant to see the sky in order to thrive. *
