Philodendron Ceylon Golden
Philodendron 'Malay Gold'
Philodendron Ceylon Golden is a hybrid cultivated in Thailand. There is some confusion over its name and you might find it referred to as Lemon Lime, Green emerald or Malay Gold. It’s praised for its resiliency and indoor air cleaning qualities. Philodendron ‘Malay Gold’ is a super care-friendly plant that is tolerant of many light conditions, although it will grow faster and fuller in brighter light. Let her climb or trail to let it show off its gorgeous almost fluorescent green foliage. And as a style tip, place it in a colourful planter for an interesting contrast of colours.
This plant is recommended by NASA’s Clean Air Study for its air purifying attributes. Add this or a combination of different purifying plants for every 100 sq. ft. of indoor space and say goodbye to 90% of your indoor toxins. Philodendron removes airborne toxins such as formaldehyde, benzene, and trichloroethylene from the atmosphere.
The leaves never grow more than three inches wide. The plant is native to the Caribbean and Mexico. Best of all, Philodendron is easy to care for and will grow quickly in medium light with regular waterings. If the vines get too long, just prune them back to your desired length.
Dos and Don’ts after receiving the plant
- Do not re-pot the plant immediately after receiving. We’ve taken care of that with better pot and rich soil.
- Keep the plant in indirect sunlight for 3 to 7 days.
- Always check the soil moisture and keep the plant hydrated all time. Do not over water it.
