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.

More about philodendrons we are wrote in our article .

svetlo Light

Because even in its country of origin it lives attached to trees in the forest, it does not need too much light even at home. Brighter diffused light will do, but certainly not direct sunlight, which could burn the leaves.

zalivka Watering

Water only after the top layer of the substrate has dried, ideally from below. However, it must not stand in water for a long time, as the roots could rot.

vzduch Humidity

It prefers higher air humidity, it will do well near an air humidifier, we can also mist it. Or place it on a saucer with pebbles, which you fill with water - but be careful that the water does not touch its roots.

mnozeni Propagation

It is propagated by top or stem cuttings, which are best cut in spring. If the plant is mature enough, even a cut will benefit it and make it thicker. Let the cuttings take root in water or in a mixture of peat and sand at approx. 20 - 25 °C.

problemy Common problems

  • At very low air humidity, the tips of the leaves may turn brown and dry. It can also be a sign of lack of water in general. Try watering more and misting more.
  • The plant prefers soft water, preferably rainwater, both for dewing and watering.
  • With excessive watering, the leaves may fall off.
  • If the stems are elongated and sparsely leafy, the plant does not have enough light. So move it to a better lit place.
  • If most of the leaves are colored only yellow, on the contrary, the plant has an excess of light. It can also be a sign of overflow. Water until at least the top layer of the substrate (preferably half the amount in the pot) dries.
