Philodendron Calkins Gold
Philodendron Calkins Gold with pole looks awesome! It is a top choice for the collector or novice. Calkins Gold sports beautiful bright green and yellow mottled leaves. This is a very tight-node philodendron which grows well in any shady location of your tropical garden. Stems of this plant are green. It has been around for a while but it’s still a top favorite among the most discriminating collectors. These are very healthy, climbing tropical plants with well established root systems.
The growth rate and leaf colour of Calkins Gold will vary greatly depending on soil type, sunlight, temperature and other factors. A few leaves are often trimmed prior to shipping to reduce transpiration and travel stress.
This ease to care for plant is one of the most popular houseplants. In tropical regions it can survive outside, however in most places it is used strictly as a houseplant. While blooms on this fast-growing climber may appear at any time during the year most plants in confinement never bloom. The Philodendron is an evergreen vine that thrives in partial shade at moderate temperatures.
