Scientific Name
Philodendron erubescens (blushing tree-hugger) var. 'Painted Lady'

Common Name
Painted Lady Philodendron

Tropical areas of South/Central America

A hybrid philodendron, created by plant breeder Robert H. McColley in the 90's, the 'painted' leaves on this philodendron are a beautiful mix of the two parent plants Philodendrons: P. Erubescens and P. Erubescens 'Emerald Queen'. An ideal plant if your plant collection is looking too green and you want to add some bright interest!

Place in moderate to bright indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight as this can scorch the leaves.

Allow the top two inches of soil to dry out in between waterings (these plants are easy-going so if you wait a little longer to water don't panic!). Ensure good drainage and don't allow to sit in water.

Appreciates above average humidity, but will do just fine in most standard household humidity. Will appreciate an occasional misting, especially if in a dryer spot.

Use a chunky, well draining mix. Repot every two years in spring as the plant grows.

Will benefit from a light feed throughout spring and summer.

Average household temperatures of about 18-28° are fine- try not to place somewhere where temperatures dip below 12°C for extended periods.

No, this plant is toxic to pets and small humans.

Sprouts Top Tips
Dust can build up on the big leaves, so wipe with a soft cloth occasionally. Rotate the plant now and then to promote even growth. Avoid draughty spots.
