Philodendron ‘Moonlight’


Philodendron ‘Moonlight’ is a fantastic plant that illuminates any interior with its fluorescent green. It creates an effective bright contrast against the darker green of other plants. From a distance, it attracts the eye with its bright color and delights with large, shiny leaves. The brightest are the newly developing leaves in a light lime-yellow color. With age, the leaves become darker, thicker and have more pronounced veins. An additional advantage of the Philodendron ‘Moonlight’ is its short stature and compact, shrubby habit. Despite its small size for a philodendron, it has large heart-shaped leaves and forms a compact, huge mass of bright, energizing green. The leaf petioles are pink. Under favorable cultivation conditions, it can bloom with a pink-colored cola-like, typical for pictorial plants. A treat for collectors!
