‘Lemon Lime’ is a refreshing new twist on the popular prayer plant - pink-ribbed markings are replaced by light green markings although the attractive patterns along their midrib with yellow-green splotches remain. Once settled and the shoots have lengthened, mature plants often develop a delightful trailing habit. So if you’re looking for a fresh new look, this could be just the tonic!
Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery alternative), but we have a wide and wonderful range on our website to choose from.
- Home care: Originating from tropical regions, ‘Lemon Lime’ prefers relatively stable temperatures (ideally above 15°C) and a well-lit position out of direct sunlight (think steamy jungle!) Keep well watered, reduce frequency/quantity of watering/water in winter. Maintain a humid environment - either grow it in a steamy room, misting it with water regularly, and/or sit the pot on a tray of dampened, washed gravel.
