This fast-growing species of Philodendron is native to tropical South America and belongs to the Araceae family. The Philodendron cream splash is also called Philodendron brasil tricolor. It has heart-shaped leaves with a beautiful variegation. In the center they are yellowish to light green, around the outside are the cream-colored stripes that give it its name, edged all by a rich, darker green.
This rare houseplant can be cultivated both as a hanging plant and on a climbing stick. Suitable are self-made climbing aids made of Sphagnum moss or commercially available vine sticks for climbing plants. Temperatures between 20° and 25° as well as increased humidity are optimal for the rare Philodendron cream splash, and it also enjoys bright indirect light. The substrate should be nice and loose and never dry out completely. To avoid waterlogging, it is recommended to water again only when the first few inches of soil are dry. How often you then actually need to water depends largely on the light, humidity, size of the plant and that of the pot.
