English name:Philodendron 'Malay Gold'
Latin name:Philodendron Hybrid Malay Gold
About me:I am a rare climbing Philodendron with large paddle-shaped lime green leaves that are buttery in colour when they first emerge.
Useful to know:
I am a hybrid cultivated in Thailand.
My leaves can get 8in long and 4in wide!
I can handle anything from bright light to shade, but keep me away from direct sun.
Allow the top 3cm of my soil to dry between waterings.
Room temperatures of 16-24°C are perfect.
Feed me fortnightly from spring to autumn.
As I am a climber, I will probably require a support such as a moss pole once I get bigger.
I can develop root rot if you water me too much or leave me sitting in water.
I am toxic so please don't eat me.
There is some confusion over my name - you migth find me referred to as Lemon Lime, Green emerald or Ceylon Gold!
