Golden Goddess Philodendron
Philodendron 'Malay Gold'
The Philodendron 'Malay Gold' is sure to brighten your day with its vibrant foliage! This fast-growing plant has large paddle-shaped lime green and buttery yellow leaves, which will add a pop of colour to your plant collection.
I am a rare climbing Philodendron with large paddle-shaped lime green leaves that are buttery in colour when they first emerge.
A hybrid from Thailand, the rare and tropical Golden Goddess Philodendron is a robust plant that requires little care. Pop yours in bright indirect light, near a window but be careful not to expose it to too much direct sunlight as this could scorch its leaves. Keep the soil evenly moist and only water when the top inch has dried out.
These vigorous climbers may need some help to stay upright up as they mature, so consider purchasing one of our plant supports to give it the help it needs. For best results, mist this plant once a week to boost humidity. These tropical plants like the air in their homes to be warm and moist.

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 might find me referred to as Lemon Lime, Green emerald or Ceylon Gold!
