This gorgeous new white variety of red-stemmed climbing philodendron is almost never seen in collections as it is so hard to get hold of; nevertheless, it is an Instagram favourite for its striking looks.
Named for the bright white new leaves, which change slowly to yellow then lime green in maturity, when they attain a diameter of up to 35cm. The Florida Ghost Philodendron is an easy to grow, slow-growing tropical plant that copes well with lower light levels than other houseplants.
In the rainforests of South America. philodendrons climb everywhere along trees and rocks, so provide it with a mossy pole to grow around, or plant it in a hanging basket.
Care: Keep soil moist but not too wet, and does not dry out. Avoid bright sunlight and protect from temperatures below 15 degrees. Apply a light fertilizer every fortnight in the summer. Repot every few years.
