Yum! The bright chartreuse foliage of Philodendron cordatum Lemon Lime looks like a big, cheerful basket of lemons and limes. This popular houseplant variety, native to southeastern Brazil, features large, heart-shaped leaves. Philodendrons are great for beginners, and this one is no exception. It should thrive indoors with little maintenance.
A prolific grower, this plant will tolerate low to bright, indirect light, but does not appreciate direct sunlight. Its long, cascading vines can be trimmed to promote bushier growth, or it can spill wildly out of a hanging basket. Cuttings are easy to propagate in water. Though it is tolerant of dry conditions, you may want to mist the leaves occasionally. In the spring and summer, keep the soil moist. In the winter, let the soil dry out between waterings.
