Plant Features

The Calkins Gold Philodendron is a lush, tropical plant known for its large, heart-shaped leaves that have a bright, golden-yellow to lime coloring. This eye-catching plant can bring a pop of color and vitality to any indoor space. Its leaves can develop a deeper hue of green with more exposure to light, and the plant’s easy-going nature makes it a fantastic choice for indoor gardeners of various skill levels.

When it comes to troubleshooting, common issues with the Calkins Gold Philodendron include browning leaf tips, which can be a sign of low humidity or over-fertilization, and yellowing leaves, often a result of overwatering. If the plant is not producing new leaves or the leaves are smaller than usual, it might not be receiving enough light or nutrients. Dusty leaves should be wiped down to allow the plant to photosynthesize efficiently, and it’s important to keep an eye out for pests like aphids and spider mites.
