Niamh, a Philodendron Neon or Philodendron Cordatum Neon, has chartreuse-yellow, heart-shaped leaves cascading in a flowing vine. Think the Philodendron Micans crossed with a tennis ball.
Niamh can grow to astonishing lengths either as a climber or left trailing from a hanging pot or shelf. If you’re looking for that wow factor, try placing a few of Niamh side by side to make a living curtain!
Niamh, Philodendron Neon
Niamh prefers indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight wouldn’t go a miss.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
