Philodendron domesticum 'Lemon Lime'
Philodendron domesticum 'Lemon Lime' has elongated, chartreuse leaves, distinctively pink petioles, and a bushy growth habit. Not to be confused with its heart-leaf cousin, the 'Lemon Lime' cultivar of P. domesticum produces a more compact plant, with many leaves and shoots emerging from the base of the plant. This naturally occurring, spontaneous mutation of the parent plant was discovered in China in 2004. Though this plant stays bushy, it loves to climb and will happily grow up a moss pole. Perfect for any space that needs an electric pop of color.
• Light: Low to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil dries out
• Considerations: Trim leggy vines to promote a bushier growth habit - the tip cuttings can be easily propagated! Brighter light intensifies leaf color

Haven't had a bad experience with Pistils and this experience was just as amazing as the first! Ordered with Raphidophora hayi, both plants came I'm great condition despite being shipped cross country in the cold. Also extremely quick shipping, even during the holiday season!!!
I don't know if I'm really, really bad at taking care of plants or what. But it's been barely a week, if that, since I got this plant, and it's already unsaveable. My other plant from Pistils (I bought two) is fine, but this lemon lime one is dead and dry. When it arrived it was dry so I watered it, but it just shriveled up into nothingness two days later, even when I followed all care instructions. Again, the second one is doing okay so I don't think it's my fault?? I have no clue. Just a bummer.
