Philodendron hederaceum (formerly Philodendron scandens) | Heartleaf Philodendron ‘Lemon Lime’
Philodendron hederaceum Heartleaf Philodendron ‘Lemon Lime’ is also called Sweetheart Vine, Golden Brazil, Lemon Lime Plant, and is often incorrectly labeled and sold as Philodendron domesticum or Philodendron cordatum ‘Lemon Lime’. It’s a beautiful and brighter cultivar of the classic Heartleaf Philodendron. New leaves emerge an electric pinkish-yellow, then develop into a deep lemon color, and finally to a lime-green as they mature, with large plants having pops of yellow among a sea of green. The more light exposure, the brighter the yellow will be.
Tolerant of a wide range of light conditions, this trailing vine is a prolific grower, producing long cascading vines that can easily reach the floor given enough time. Like its close relative, the standard green Heartleaf Philodendron, Philodendron ‘Lemon Lime’ is extremely easy to grow. A perfect plant for hanging baskets trained up a trellis. It will produce impressive sized foliage if it roots into a moss tower.

How to prepare cuttings to root via rooting cubes inside a humidity dome.
- Upon arrival, give cuttings a new fresh cut on the bottom of the stem. Then set in a cup of water for a minimum of 15 minutes.
- After soaking, gently cut or scrape small marks into the bottom portion of the plant stem (½ inch) with scissors or a razor blade.
- Dip the scarred end of the stem into rooting gel or rooting powder (gel is superior). This can be done without rooting gel, but results are not as good.
- Insert the plant stem into a rooting cube (Oasis cubes, grow plugs, soil-cubes, rock-wool cubes, etc) and place into a nursery tray with a humidity dome over the top. One cutting per cube. Custom individual humidity domes can be made using plastic cups and/or plastic cling wrap.
- After the first 3-5 days, the humidity dome should be opened up or set ajar to slowly allow more air in as the plants start to root. At this point, the cubes should be allowed to become mostly dry before adding any more water.
- Once 2-3 roots grow out of the bottom of the root-cube, the plant can be transplanted into soil.
