Botanical name: Philodendron hederaceum Lemon Lime
Philodendron lemon lime is a common indoor plant. It is admired for its attractive, lime green colored, heart-shaped leaves and low maintenance growth habit. An average leaf may get 5 to 8 inches long and 2 to 3 cm wide in indoors while they can grow much bigger in open spaces. It is a perennial, prolific grower with long dangling vines.
This plant is relatively durable and it can thrive in many different conditions but it is more suited to bright light but not direct sun. It can, however, cope with low light.The leaves of the philodendron lemon lime plant may turn yellow or brown which is a sign of extra bright or direct light exposure. It is simple burning of the plant.
If under lighted, the plant gets droopy.
One of the important aspects of Lemon lime Philodendron care is proper watering. Plants need little quantities of water. In between the intervals of watering the upper half of the soil should be semi dry during summers and completely dry during winters.
