'Golden Crocodile' philodendron, also known as Philodendron 'Golden Dragon', is a unique and beautiful cultivar of the popular Philodendron family. As the name suggests, this plant features crocodile-like markings on 'Golden Crocodile' leaves in shades of gold, green, and brown, giving it a distinctive appearance.

The leaves of the 'Golden Crocodile' philodendron are large and glossy, with a smooth texture and a pointed tip. The leaves are deeply lobed and have a distinct shape resembling an arrowhead, which is typical of many philodendrons.

New leaves of the Philodendron 'Golden Crocodile' are so bright they almost glow, and eventually settle into a vibrant yellow sure to stand out on the shelf. They enjoy a bright, but not direct light and are an easy-to-grow Philodendron. The 'Golden Crocodile' can also be propagated by cuttings, and shared with friends.
