‘Painted Lady’ is a variegated variety of Philodendron and is much loved for its striking foliage. The young, heart-shaped leaves are yellow with speckles of green and bright pink petioles. The foliage develops to a fresh mottled green colour as the plant matures. It has a climbing habit and it prefers some support, like a moss pole or trellis, to grow up on.
|Indoors in bright light|
|Regular watering, but allow to dry out a bit between waterings|
|Use a very well-draining potting medium with added river sand - it does not like to have 'wet feet'.|
|Sensitive to extreme temperatures, especially cold and draughts|
