Philodendron is photographed in a Basalt pot. The package contains a plant in a plastic pot.
About the plant:
Philodendrons come from the rainforests of Central and South America. Its name is derived from the Greek word phileo = to love and dendron = tree, because many varieties of philodendrons are climbing and can cling to trees with their aerial roots. Similarly, we can ensure this for them in domestic conditions, if we give them some support in the flowerpot, which they could also climb on, e.g. a coconut stick.
This particular cultivar is particularly striking with its glossy green heart-shaped leaves, with a beautiful neon yellow stripe. Each leaf can be colored differently, younger leaves are even more yellow. When the plant has an excess of light, the yellow color can also predominate.
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.
