      The Best Unboxing Practices:

        Properly caring for your newly unboxed Philodendron Lemon Lime for the first week of its new life is crucial to the extended wellness of your plant. Follow these practices to get the best results:
          • Watering: Exotic Forest ships freshly watered plants. Do not water your Philodendron until it exhibits the proper signs.
          • Repotting: Do not immediately repot your plant, which would likely result in shock and leaf-loss. Allow it to acclimate to its new environment for at least one week. 
          • Lighting: Place your Philodendron in filtered, low light for a few days to acclimate. Relocate your Philodendron Lemon Lime to your desired location that fits its care needs afterward. Do not ever place a freshly un-boxed plant in direct sun.

          FAQ about Philodendron Lemon Lime:

            • How to propagate Lemon Lime Philodendron? As a self-heading Philodendron, the easiest way to propagate your plant is by division. At maturity, your plant will produce “pups” that can be harvested. Stem cutting can also be successful! For more instructions, read this.
            • How to care for a Lemon Lime Plant? Lemon Lime Plants are easy to care for. Average household humidity suits them and they can survive in a wide range of lighting conditions. The #1 thing to remember: Don't overwater, which is the cause of most houseplant deaths.
            • What’s the best watering routine for Philodendron Lemon Lime? You should allow the first 1-2 inches of soil to dry before rewatering your plant. Sadly, this doesn’t happen on a set schedule, so you should be flexible with your watering routine. Regularly check the soil’s moisture and water only when it is at the proper dryness level. With these plants, it’s best to err on the side of caution! They will easily recover from slight underwatering; whereas routine overwatering will cause root rot.
