Philodendron Painted Lady – Picture shows in a 4″ nursery pot
Our grower has confirmed the plant to be a painted lady. However, we are doubtful about the true identity of this plant. The plant is not mature enough to be confirmed as a philodendron-painted lady. There is a possibility that it might be a Philodendron Calkins Gold.
Light: Bright Indirect
Water: 10 – 15 Days
Pet Friendly: No
Philodendron painted lady thrives in bright indirect light. You can also easily grow them in medium light. However, the growth of the plant will be slower and watering will be less frequent. Bright light will encourage retaining the variegation on the leaves. Please let the top 2″ of the soil get dry between watering. The watering is somewhat between 10 – 15 days as every house is different in terms of heat, humidity, and light. It is highly recommended to use room temperature water to water your plants as we do not want to shock the roots with hot or cold water. Philodendrons are tropical plants and love high humidity. A regular misting will make the plant very happy and healthy.
The Philodendron painted lady is a very popular houseplant because of the beautiful variegation of the leaves. If you are drawn to collecting rare and uncommon plants, you will enjoy growing this plant. With the proper growing condition and care, this is a fairly easy houseplant to successfully grow indoors. Bright indirect light will help to retain the variegation. This plant grows very well with the support of a moss pole.
