Philodendron 'Malay Gold'

Height (cm)
Pot diameter (cm)

The Philodendron 'Malay Gold' has neon coloured foliage which offers a lovely pop of colour.

The word Philo means ‘love’ and Dendron means ‘tree’ in Greek. Philodendrons are considered tree huggers, loving to climb. They grow well in a planter, on a moss pole or a trellis.

Watering

Water regularly during warmer months but allow the soil to dry out between each watering and make sure the roots are never sitting in water for a prolonged period. Water less frequently during colder months.

Light requirements 

Requires plenty of indirect light but may suffer if it gets too much direct sunlight. A lack of light can lead to leggy stems/ low growth rate / loss of leaves. 

Care tips

  • Avoid placing the planter next to radiators or draughty windows
  • Carefully wipe the leaves from time-to-time to remove any dust
  • Prune out any brown leaves or stems by cutting as close to the next stem or the base of the plant as possible
  • Use some fertiliser during warmer months i.e. April to September (little and often is best for consistent growth)
