Philodendron 'Caulkins Gold' is excellent for beginners who want to start exploring the world of hard-to-find, rare plants. It boasts beautiful bright green and yellow mottled leaves, enjoys being in lower light conditions than other house plants and benefits from a mossy pole to climb. It is sometimes confused with another wonderful Philodendron. The distinguishing features between 'Painted Lady' and 'Calkins Gold' is that the latter lacks any red coloration to the petiole, the spacing between each leaf is more compact and the leaves are more upright.

Pro tips

It truly enjoys indirect light as direct light will most likely burn the leaves on the plant. The leaves are large and flat so it would be best to dust them once in a while to aid in photosynthesis.

Care Guide

How to take care of Philodendron Calkins Gold

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will thrive in bright light, but also can tolerate medium light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They like the soil to be relatively dry before the next watering. That usually takes about 2 weeks in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. droopy, floppy, or soft leaves). Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist daily or get a humidifier.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.
