Philodendron Painted Lady – Features, How to Grow and Care

Philodendron Painted Lady is a beautiful, tropical, climbing plant that has light green leaves with a particular “design” on them. They are yellowish and have darker green speckles on their large surface. Because these plants are climbers, they appreciate external support, for example, a brass stake or a coco pole.

Painted Lady Plant Classification

  • Family: Araceae
  • Subfamily: Aroideae
  • Genus: Philodendron

About the Philodendron Genus

In the Greek language, “philo” means love, whereas “Dendron” means “tree”. The plant was named Philodendron in 1829 in reference to the fact that it is a “tree hugger” and loves to climb along with trees. These plants are one of the largest groups of genera in the family Araceae. They are flowering plants most commonly used as indoor, ornamental houseplants. Their foliage is what makes them so popular. Philodendrons have over 400 species, all of which vary in shapes, colors, and sizes. They can be oval, heart-shaped, or pointy. Similarly, they all vary in colors as well. Some have dark green leaves, some have light ones, but all of them have a thick, leathery texture to avoid excessive loss of moisture.

In some cultures, a Philodendron plant stands for health and abundance. This genus has been cultivated extensively and some of its beautiful variations are Philodendron Hastatum, Philodendron Sodiroi, Philodendron Serpens, and also, Painted Lady plant Philodendron.

Common Names and Synonyms

  • Calostigma
  • Meconostigma
  • Sphincterostigma
  • Arosma Raf.
  • Telipodus Raf.
  • Thaumatophyllum
  • Elopium
  • Baursea

Origin and Distribution

The first Philodendron goes back to 1644 and is native to the Caribbean and Colombia. These plants mainly belong to the tropical rain forests of America and the West Indies. Apart from rain forests, they can also be found growing alongside river banks and swamps. These plants can also be found in parts of Australia and Africa as well as Asia.

Philodendron Painted Lady is a hybrid plant of two-parent Philodendrons, namely, P. Erubescens Emerald Queen plant and P. Erubescens Burgundy plant.

Painted Lady Plant Philodendron Features

Foliage and stem

As mentioned earlier, these plants are very much in demand for their foliage. They have large, unique yellow leaves that have speckles of green on them and are shaped like hearts. This yellow color turns into green as the plant matures. Their leaves have a leathery texture and a shiny, glossy appearance. They have red petioles and the leaves can grow as long as 6 inches.


Luckily, these plants are evergreen. This means that their leaves stay large, thick, and beautiful as long as they live. This is always a favorable feature for houseplant lovers that wish to grow tropical plants indoors.


If given the right Philodendron Painted Lady care, these plants can grow as tall as 2 to 5 feet and spread as wide as 12 to 16 inches. However, every plant has its genetic makeup and may vary greatly in terms of size.

Temperature Tolerance

Philodendrons are not temperature tolerant plants. They need to be kept away from extreme temperatures, especially colder environments.

Humidity Tolerance

As tropical plants, the Philodendron Painted Lady loves moisture. You can use a humidifier in the house to compensate for dry air in your area. Misting the plant every once in a while is also not a bad idea. Just make sure you don’t overdo it because standing water on leaves is what calls dangerous insects for a visit.


Very rarely, these plants bloom and grow flowers. These flowers are green or white and may show up during the late spring or mid-summer season. However, plant specialists suggest that if you are growing this plant indoors, it is better to cut these flowers off. Not only do they take up a lot of the plant’s energy and resources, but they also have an annoying smell and are not all that beneficial anyway.


As discussed, these plants love water. So, they are not drought-resistant plants. They need frequent watering sessions and humidity around them.

Disease Resistance

When it comes to diseases, this plant is fairly resistant and has no popular complaints.

Pest Resistance

Spider mites, mealybugs, scale insects, and thrips are some of the most common attacking insects you can expect near a Philodendron Painted Lady plant. You must keep the leaves and stem of the plant clean and dry because water sitting for too long on the surface of the plant is what attracts them in the first place.

If you do find insects attacking your plant, simply spray them with soap water or an insecticide to kill the insects and their babies. For a more natural alternative, you can use Neem oil or rubbing alcohol to wipe the leaves.


Generally, these plants are slow-growing. So, if your plant is not growing rapidly even though you are feeding it properly, don’t worry. It takes its time. Be patient, be consistent and don’t overwater or overfeed the plant.


Unfortunately, Philodendron Painted Lady is a very toxic plant. It consists of calcium oxalate crystals that can irritate your skin, your eyes, and your digestive tract, all the way from your mouth to your stomach. It can cause inflammation, pain, and swelling. Keep these plants away from your pets and children. Because of their climbing nature, you need to be extra cautious about their vines.


Their perennial life cycle makes them very durable plants. They can last up to years and even decades if given the right care and environment.


Given that these plants do require a certain routine of watering and feeding, and demand your attention to prevent pest attacks, they are not the easiest to maintain. They need to be kept away from children and also have a slow-growing rate.


These plants go into a “resting phase” during the winter season. This means that they stop growing and start conserving the water and food they get. So, if your plant has suddenly “gone to sleep” during the cold days, don’t panic. Give it care and time and it will come right back when spring arrives.

Philodendron Painted Lady Care

Philodendron Painted Lady care includes a set range of temperatures to grow in as it cannot tolerate cold environments. They are very sensitive to over-watering as well as under-watering and love humidity around them. Rich, lightweight, and well-drained soils do great for these plants.

Water Requirements

To water, these plants, use the soak and dry method. Simply, water the plants thoroughly once and then wait for the soil to be completely dry, or at least moist, before you water them again. To check this, you can use moisture meters or simply use your finger to feel the texture of the soil. If you water the plant while the soil is still wet and soggy, it will get water-clogged and cause many problems, decreasing the growth rate of your Painted lady and may even end up killing it.

It is advised that you use lukewarm warm (or room temperature) water for this plant.

Soil Requirements

The Painted Lady plants love a rich, lightweight, well-drained soil. You can use a regular cactus mix in containers for these plants. Sand and all the other beneficial ingredients for plant growth and proper drainage are already present in this soil mix. However, avoid using cheap soil for this plant. Invest in good quality soil mix for the long run. Your plant will thank you.


Philodendrons appreciate the medium, indirect light, and sometimes even partial shade. Try to keep them in a well-lit, bright room but not under direct sunlight because that can burn its leaves. If you must keep them outdoors, using a shade cloth can help mellow the sunlight hitting your plant.


The optimum range to grow Philodendron Painted Lady plants is from 55 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. It cannot survive in extreme environments. Thus, as soon as it starts getting extra chilly outside, make sure you move the plant to a warmer spot. Also, make sure your plant is not kept directly in front of a fan or an air conditioner.


A little extra humidity doesn’t bother this plant. You can mist the foliage now and then, especially during the warm and windy days of summer and spring, while the plant is growing.


Two types of fertilizers can be used for this plant. Either a water-soluble, fast-releasing, liquid fertilizer or a granular, slow-releasing fertilizer can work. Feeding them once every two weeks is enough. You don’t want to over-feed the plant because that can damage its roots. Also make sure you decrease the feeding frequency during winters, as the plant is in its “resting phase” and does not need any food, so fertilizing once a month is enough during the winter season.


Since it grows slowly, you will not need to repot it very frequently; not for at least 2 to 3 years. However, if the plant has somehow overgrown its current pot, replant it preferably during the spring and summer seasons because those are the “growing seasons” for the plant. Simply, take out the plant from its current pot, brush off the excess soil and clean the roots. Now, carefully plant it into its new, bigger pot. Resume watering and fertilizing the plant as per routine.

Grooming and Cleaning Requirements

You can groom these plants by trimming and cutting off any unwanted, excess growth. However, make sure you don’t cut off too much of these plants, as that may shunt their overall growth.

Also, make sure you keep the plant clean and dry. Their broad leaves can collect dust as well as water, which can attract all kinds of insects.

Philodendron Painted Lady Propagation

Propagating your Philodendron is relatively simple. Follow the steps below for Philodendron Painted Lady propagation.

  • Choose a mature plant, and during its growing phase, cut off a tip with a clean, sterilized pair of scissors or blades. The cutting can be as long as 4 to 6 inches.
  • Now, pot this cutting in a pre-prepared pot with a suitable soil mix.
  • Put this pot under warm temperature and indirect sunlight, water and fertilize it according to its individual needs and watch it grow!

If you wish to propagate it in water, the procedure is very similar.

  • Fill a jar with water and put the plant cutting into it.
  • Keep it away from direct sunlight because that can stimulate algae growth, and change the water frequently.
  • Once the roots start appearing, you can switch the plant to a soil pot.


Day 1-7: Plant your cutting and water under suitable conditions. If already in the water, make sure you change the water regularly.

Week 2-3: Roots start forming in both soil and water-propagated plants.

Month 2-4: You can now shift the water-propagating plant to a soil pot. After this stage, the plant will take its time to grow, since this species grows slowly. Just keep watering it and protecting it from external damage.

Some Common FAQs

Why Are the Leaves of My Philodendron Plant Going Yellow and Wilting?

Too much watering, improper soil drainage, and soggy soil with standing water are all possible causes of your plant wilting or becoming pale. Make sure you only water your plant when the soil looks dry. Also, make sure your pot is breathable and has a good drainage system.

Why Do the Leaves of My Philodendron Plant Have Brown Spots and Patches?

When you put the plant under direct sunlight for too long, it starts to look unwell. It grows brown or yellow spots and patches on its leaves and looks pale and dry. This means that the plant’s leaves are burning and that you need to move the plant to a more shaded spot.

Displaying Philodendron Painted Lady

These species can be grown in masses and displayed in a bushy manner. They can also be grown next to palms outside in the garden or tree ferns inside the house. You can also grow these next to walls to create a “green wall”. These would also look beautiful set up in hanging baskets. Because of their comparatively light green foliage, they will look great displayed next to plants with darker leaves because of the contrasting colors.

Final Thoughts

Philodendrons are popular tropical, climbing plants that have big beautiful yellow leaves with speckles of green and red petioles. They do not easily catch diseases and are very easy to propagate. Because of their size and foliage, they look great displayed around the house, in the rooms as well as in the balconies and sunrooms, however, be careful of where you put them because they are highly toxic and should be kept away from the reach of children and pets.

Philodendron Painted Lady will prefer dry soil conditions, so choose a well-draining potting soil and always allow your plant to dry out between watering. This tender plant loves warm environments.

The word Philo means ‘love’ and Dendron means ‘tree’ in the Greek language. For this reason, Philodendrons are considered tree huggers and grow well with support. With the right care, this durable perennial can also survive for several years’ even decades.

This climbing tropical from the Araceae plant family is a great addition to any outdoor or indoor space. This plant will definitely demand a certain level of attention from you in terms of watering and feeding.

This article will help you understand the recommended care instructions for the Philodendron Painted Lady.


How Not To Kill Your Philodendron Painted Lady

Basic plant care for Philodendron Painted Lady



A rich, moist soil mixture works great for the Painted Lady Philodendron. Consider planting it in a well-draining cactus or succulent mix (partly sand). Just make sure whatever potting medium you choose is lightweight.

In mild climates, you can grow it outdoors, the most suitable USDA hardiness zones for outdoor planting are 9b-11. You can grow it on a patio in USDA hardiness zones 4a – 11.

For growing it in a container or pot, you can use a regular potting mix with sand. Adding sand will help improve drainage. The ideal soil pH is 6.1 – 7.3, slightly acidic to neutral.



The Philodendron Painted Lady prefers to stay on the drier side. Allow the plant to dry well between watering sessions. This plant needs frequent watering, but Philodendron growers highly discourage keeping this plant wet or standing in water.

Water it using the soak and dry method. This is done by watering your plant thoroughly and then allowing it to dry out completely before watering again. Closely monitor the moisture levels using your fingers or a moisture meter.

If you water your Painted Lady plant too often, it will probably not survive. Philodendron species can go for weeks without water, so skip watering if you are unsure whether your plant needs water or not.

Painted Lady plant is sensitive to both over and under-watering. Therefore it is important to experiment and understand the watering requirements to help your Philodendron plant grow well.

Generally, you can water every 7-9 days in the summer and every 2-3 weeks in the winter.



This plant will require a 70-85% sun. It will thrive well in either bright, indirect sunlight or even low light conditions like fluorescent lights.

Keep it in a well-lit room with adequate sunlight. Place the Painted Lady plant near the window where the direct sunlight cannot hit the foliage. This plant can happily survive in medium lightand partial shade.

Protect the Philodendron Painted Lady from prolonged sun exposure; else, the foliage will start browning. Too much sunlight causes yellowing of foliage, whereas too little lighting will make the stems leggy.

For outdoor locations, use a shade cloth to protect your plant from direct sunlight.



The Painted Lady plant is not temperature tolerant; therefore, it cannot withstand any extreme temperatures. It is sensitive to cold environments.

The optimum temperature range for this plant is around 12 to 26 degrees Celsius (55 to 80 oF). It tolerates a minimum temperature of 10 degrees Celsius (50 o F). Move your outdoor plant inside as soon as the weather starts getting chilly.

Indoors, the Philodendron Painted Lady, should not be placed next to fans, air conditioners, or vents.



This tropical plant loves moisture, 65-80% humidity is perfect. If your house has a dry environment, you can use a humidifier to improve the indoor humidity level.

Occasionally mist the leaves with water on warm and windy days during spring and summer. But don’t allow the water to sit on foliage because this increases the risk for diseases and pest infections.



Since this plant is mainly grown for its beautiful foliage, you can use any all-purpose foliage fertilizer for the Philodendron Painted Lady. You can use a liquid quick-release fertilizer to provide the necessary nutrients, feed the plant every 2 weeks in the active growth season, spring and summer.

You can also fertilize the newly planted Painted Lady three times per year using a slow time-released fertilizer. Make sure you are fertilizing 6 inches away from the base.

This plant does not need much food in winter, feeding once a month is enough. Overfeeding will damage and kill the plant roots.



The Philodendron Painted Lady has a well-established and robust root system. This slow-growing plant will not require repotting at least for 2 or 3 years. You can repot anytime in the growing seasons if it’s outgrowing the pot.

Move it to a slightly bigger pot (one size bigger than the previous one) and resume the usual planting care. This plant needs looser roots instead of being pot bound, that’s how it’s going to get tall and healthy.



You can maintain this plant’s appearance by trimming any excess growth. However, avoid over-pruning, it can reduce the overall growth of the plant.



Philodendron plants are considered the easiest to propagate. Propagation is a great way to multiply your houseplants without spending any money. Always use clean, sterilized scissors or blades when trimming or cutting your plants.


Water Propagation:

  • Choose a mature and healthy plant for propagation. Take stems cuttings of 4-6 inches above an existing leaf joint in the growing season.
  • It is important to identify the location where you will make a cut on your plant; ideally, it should be ¼” below the node. Pinch off two to three lower leaves from the cutting so that you have some bare leaf nodes. Now let the cuttings dry for a few hours.
  • You can place this cutting in a jar of water, vermiculite, perlite, or soil.
  • For water propagation, fill a glass jar with water leaving 1-inch space at the top. I would suggest leaving the water to sit overnight; this will dissipate chlorine. This will also bring the water to room temperature because using too cold or hot water can shock the plant leading to a failed propagation.
  • Submerge the leafless nodes in water, ensure that the remaining upper leaves are not touching the water.
  • Refresh the water after 2 to 3 days using room temperature water and place the cutting in bright, filtered sunlight during the rooting phase. You can add sheer curtains to windows for diffusing the sunlight.
  • Direct sunlight can also encourage algae growth in water propagation.
  • When you are changing water, gently rub the roots with your fingers to wipe away the dirt. I really enjoy propagating my plants in water because that way, I get to watch the root development.
  • The cutting will start rooting in 10 to 20 days. Once the roots are 3 to 5 inches in size, your cutting can be transferred to soil. The longer you keep the cutting in water, the difficult it becomes for the plant to acclimate to the soil.
  • This plant will take some time to establish itself. Follow the care instructions mentioned above to help it grow.
  • You have to be patient with water propagation because the cuttings may not show any signs of root development for about 2 weeks.


Air Layering:

This is the most interesting propagation method because it allows you to propagate a plant before you take any cuttings from the mother plant. Keep reading to learn how:

  • All you need is sphagnum moss and a healthy Painted Lady Philodendron. Choose a healthy stem and wrap the moss around the node and the support. Wrapping around the support is optional, but it secures the moss better.
  • It is better to soak the sphagnum moss in water for 1 hour before starting the air layering. The moisture on the moss will create a humid environment that encourages growth.
  • You can use the regular plastic sheets to wrap; you’ll end up with a wrapped moss ball.
  • Don’t wrap any leaves because they will rot. Keep a small opening while wrapping for air circulation.
  • This approach for air layering is the safest because even if the propagation fails, you haven’t taken the cutting, so you are not losing anything.
  • Spray the moss ball every day to keep the moss moist. Roots will start appearing in 2 to 3 weeks.
  • Open the wrapping and gently remove some moss around the roots. Now take stem cuttings by making a cut just below the node. Choose a spot so that the final cutting will have at least two leaves on it.
  • Place the cutting in a transparent plastic cup and add fresh sphagnum moss to it. Follow the care instructions mentioned above for the Philodendron Painted Lady.



This Philodendron plant won’t bloom often. But when it does, the flowers are green, cream and white in color. The blooming season is late spring to mid-summer.

These flowers have an unpleasant smell, and waste plant’s energy and nutrients. Therefore most growers remove them as soon as they grow.



This is a self-heading plant; it grows upright and spreads outwards. The leaves are glossy and smooth-edged. Young leaves begin neon yellow in color, and as the plant matures, leaves fade to a deeper green with blotches and spots. The plant retains the bright pink color of the stems through maturity.

The large, heart-shaped leaves are the most appealing aspect and the selling point of the Philodendron Painted Lady. The leaves are glossy, textured, and on a mature plant are about 6 inches in size.

This is a slow-growing plant, but a mature plant can easily reach a height of 2 to 5 ft with support. And can be between 12 to 16 inches in width.

The growth rate for this Philodendron plant varies depending on temperature, light, and soil type.  It takes about 5 years to reach maturity.



Like many other houseplants, this one also goes into a dormant or resting phase during the winter. The plant will automatically stop growing to conserve the food and water. You don’t have to bother the plant during this phase, just let it be, and it will get normal when spring arrives.


Common Problems for Philodendron Painted Lady

This plant is a no-fuss plant with little pest or disease issues. Some of the possible problems are discussed below.

Mealybugs: These are common houseplant pests. They feed on the plant nutrients by sucking the sap. Neem oil is the most organic solution for treating mealybugs. You can even wipe the leaves with rubbing alcohol.

Spider Mites: Keep the stems and leaves dry because moist foliage attracts pests like spider mites. Spray your plant with insecticide or soap water to kill the mites. These mites also feed on the plant’s sap.

Yellowing or Wilting leaves: Overwatering, soggy soil, and inadequate soil drainage are the main reasons foryellow and wilting leaves on Philodendron Painted Lady. All these cause the roots to suffocate. You can easily solve these issues by watering the plant only when the soil feels dry and ensure proper drainage by choosing a container with at least one drainage hole.

Brown Spots: Your plant will start having brown spots or patches when it’s exposed to direct sunlight for too long. The leaves will also have pale and dry appearance due to sunburns. Immediately move your plant to a shadier place and see how it performs.

Bacterial leaf spot diseases: The main symptoms of leaf spot diseases include brown spots with yellow halos, dark areas on the leaf, and black-eyed lesions. The leaves become very delicate and papery with crispy brown edges.

Leaf spot diseases mostly affect the older leaves, but they can also damage the new, young leaves. Stop overhead watering to prevent the spread of these bacterial diseases. Remove the affected leaves and apply a copper fungicide.

Bacterial Blight: If your plant is rapidly developing small dark green spots, it is affected by bacterial blight. The leaves will start dropping, and the plant has a foul smell, the first step is to stop overhead watering. Water your plant in such a way that the leaves and stems are dry.

Tip curl: Overfertilization will cause the leaf tip to curl downwards and turn brown. Tip curling can be avoided by reducing the fertilization rate. If you were using a slow-release fertilizer, flush the soil with water. You can also consider repotting in new soil if you believe there is still some fertilizer left.


Tips for growing Philodendron Painted Lady

  • Do not overwater or overfeed the Philodendron Painted Lady; this will inhibit the growth.
  • When watering this plant, use lukewarm water to prevent any temperature shocks.
  • The large leaves can collect dust particles, clean them regularly to prevents pests or infections.
  • Never water the plant if the soil is still wet; this will waterlog the soil and cause many problems. The growth rate will decrease, and the plant may even die.
  • The potting mixture should be chunky to promote air circulation for the roots.
