Common Name: Philodendron Golden Goddess
Botanical Name: Philodendron species 'Golden Goddess.'
The Philodendron Golden Goddess will pull you in and command your attention due to the vivid chartreuse foliage. This vining philodendron looks amazing perched on a shelf or tabletop, so as the vines fill in and trail, the oblong, heart-shaped leaves will cascade down. The Philodendron Golden Goddess is a very easy houseplant to care for and prefers an area with lots of indirect light. Let the soil partially dry out before watering.
Philodendron Golden Goddess prefers medium to bright indirect sunlight but can live in lower light conditions. However, their leaves will be smaller, and the vines will become leggy if the light is not bright enough. Read more about indoor plant lighting needs!
Water the soil thoroughly after it's almost completely dry. It indicates that it needs water when the leaves start wilting. Water more often in the growing season and reduce the frequency during winter.
Most household temperature ranges are adequate for Philodendron Golden Goddess. Letting them remain in temperatures under 55℉ will stunt their growth. Prolonged exposure to cold temperatures can be fatal for these tropical indoor plants.
As with most tropical indoor plants, Philodendrons will benefit from higher humidity but will do fine in average household air. Higher humidity is always better for tropical houseplants.
Philodendron Golden Goddess benefits significantly from regular fertilizing. Use a weak solution of a complete liquid fertilizer every two weeks throughout the growing season. Do not fertilize during the winter months. Sometimes your indoor plants will grow all year long. If this is the case, fertilize them during noticeable foliage growth with a ¼-strength diluted liquid fertilizer, or top dress the soil with worm castings or rich compost. Learn more about how to fertilize your indoor plants.
Given the right conditions, this fast-growing philodendron can grow up to 6 feet tall if grown indoors.
Pet Friendly or Foe
This is a toxic plant. Foe!
- When you trim back vines to make your plant fuller, you can propagate the cuttings.
- Staking your plant to climb upwards encourages larger leaf development.
- For philodendrons with colorful leaves, maintain their vibrancy by providing more light.
