About the plant:
Philodendrons come from the rainforests of Central and South America. Their name is derived from the Greek word phileo = to love and dendron = tree, because many varieties are climbing and can cling to trees with their aerial roots. We can ensure a similar life for them in domestic conditions as well, if we give them some support in the flowerpot, which they could also climb on, e.g. a coconut stick.
This particular, rarer cultivar has beautifully lime- to yellow-colored, violin-shaped leaves, hence its English name. It grows quite quickly and its older leaves will be darker in color and slightly different in shape. After a while it will form a really big plant with long leaves and petioles.
It belongs to the Araceae family - so beware, it is poisonous! These plants contain calcium oxalate crystals in their tissues, which after ingestion will cause irritation of the mucous membranes of the oral cavity and digestive tract. But if we place it in a safe place where children and pets can't reach it, its beautiful color and interesting leaves will surely catch everyone's eye.
