Philodendron Goldiana (Golden Arrow) Plant
Philodendron Goldiana (Golden Arrow) Plant is one of the breathtaking of all philodendrons, it is much larger than Painted Lady but smaller than the massive Calkins Gold, perfect for indoor growing. This short node, fat stem variety performs well in a pot or on a totem. The foliage begins a bright, mottled neon yellow and fades to mottled green which eliminates sunburn at maturity. Goldiana performs very well when grown indoors in containers. These are very healthy, climbing tropical plants with well established root systems.
Philodendrons are very easy to grow tropical plants that require little care indoors or out. Like other aroids, many species of Philodendron can be grown as houseplants, or outdoors in mild climates. They thrive in moist soils with high organic matter and grow best when provided with a mossy post or burlap wrapped pole to climb. Philodendron plants can be grown in pots, hanging baskets or outdoors as a ground cover or beautiful tree wrap. Indoors plants thrive at temperatures between 65°-90°F and in lower light conditions than other house plants. In the ground or up an arbor, Philodendrons get big and are often unrecognizable from their potted juvenile state. They add a wonderfully tropical accent to any well-lit space or cascading from your favorite hanging planter. In very cold zones a containerized Philodendron can be brought inside for the winter months. Be sure to avoid frost and freezing temperatures. Hot Tip: At your own risk, once your plant reaches 2 or 3 feet in height pinch off the new growth tip, generally within a couple of weeks you should have new growth buds forming at multiple nodes creating a fuller, lush plant.

Plants growing here are grown in a natural, humid, rainforest-like environment with little to no pesticides. Though it seldom occurs, when you receive your plant, leaves may drop, have spotting, folds, or even a bite mark or two in addition leaf browning may occur especially on plants with significant white coloration, this is only natural. Remember with plants you're in it for the long haul, to enjoy their natural beauty and possibly share a cutting or two with friends and family.
Here at the nursery, plants are grown under 40-80% shade cloth. If you're growing outdoors and plant directly in full sun you may experience leaf burn. It is best to acclimate this plant to its environment by keeping it outside and slowly moving it into a sunny area over a week or so to avoid stress. Please refer to the above guidelines.
