Description

A cultivar of the classic heart-leaf philodendron, the 'Lemon Lime' is a fast growing, cascading member of the philodendron family of plants with chartreuse foliage. Leaves emerge an electric pinkish yellow, developing to a deep lemon and finally to lime green as they age. As with most philodendron plants, this one demands little attention and can adapt to a variety of environmental conditions.
