Philodendron ‘Cream Splash’ Is known as the Sweetheart Plant, or Heart-Leaf, due to the beautiful leaf shape. It is a vining Philodendron that can grow as a climber or left trailing from a hanging basket or shelf. This Cream Splash cream splash variety has stunning cram-yellow variegated leaves. It is the easiest house plant to grow.
It’s hard to believe the stunning Philodendron Cream Splash is one of the best beginner plants of all time. The dark green leaves with cream- and lime-colored neon splotches look like those of a fussy magazine-cover plant. Yet Philodendron Cream Splash tolerates a wide range of conditions and even some neglect. This article will cover all you need to know about Philodendron Cream Splash care, to help you get the most from this tropical beauty.
Cream Splash – Light green, cream, dark green.
The Philodendron Cream Splash is toxic if ingested. It contains calcium oxalate crystals which cause mild to severe gastrointestinal upset to pets. Though not as dangerous to humans, the crystals can cause irritation and nausea if eaten. They are the major element in kidney stones.
Philodendron Cream Splash is often considered a low-light plant, but they actually do better in bright, indirect lighting.
Artificial illumination is another good option. If you want to put them in a north-facing window or another spot without much ambient light – for example, the center of a room – artificial light can make up the difference.
Philodendron Cream Splash isn’t fussy about watering; though, like most plants, they hate being overwatered. They aren’t as susceptible to root rot as many tropicals, but they aren’t invulnerable. Even if they don’t succumb to root rot outright, soil that stays too wet can slow their growth and cause smaller leaves.
Another reason the Philodendron Cream Splash is such an exceptional low-maintenance plant is its tolerance of dry air indoors.
Another friendly characteristic of Philodendron Cream Splash care is that it thrives at room temperatures. It actually has a larger comfort range than we do and is happy at temperatures from 60F (15ºC) to 86ºF (30ºC) or even higher.
