Philodendron "Painted Lady"

Description

The Philodendron “Painted Lady” is a captivating climbing houseplant that can be added to an aquarium emersed, known for its striking variegated foliage and easy-care nature. Here are some details about this delightful plant.

  1. Appearance: Each new leaf emerges in a golden -yellow colour adorned with chartreuse speckling, the leaves are heart shaped and elongated tapering to a point. The plants unique bright pink petioles give an eye-catching touch. 

  2. Benefits of Including Philodendrons in Your Aquarium:

    • Nitrate Removal: Like all plants, Philodendrons need nitrogen to grow. They efficiently remove toxic compounds like nitrates, nitrites, and ammonia from the water, helping to purify it. While fish are sensitive to these compounds, plants thrive on them. Can grow up to 4" per week. 
    • Low Maintenance: Philodendrons are virtually foolproof and require minimal care. They’re hardy and adaptable, making them suitable for beginners and experienced plant parents alike.
  3. Safety Considerations:

    • While Philodendrons are safe for aquariums, there are two important caveats:
      • Toxic Leaves: Philodendron leaves contain a high concentration of oxalic acid, which is poisonous when ingested. Fish should not come into contact with these leaves.
      • Root Safety: The submerged roots of Philodendrons are non-toxic and pose no harm to fish. However, other pets (such as cats or dogs) may be more at risk.
    • Ecosystem Impact: Philodendrons are efficient root feeders and grow rapidly. In an already-planted aquarium, they could outcompete other plants for resources, potentially starving them. On the bright side, they also help control algae growth.

In summary, if you’re looking for an attractive, low-maintenance addition to your aquarium, the Philodendron “Painted Lady” could be a delightful choice!
