We received this limited run batch from Tissue Culture several months ago labelled as Philodendron 'Painted Lady' but after watching their progress, we believe that the proper ID is actually Philodendron 'Calkins Gold' !
The distinguishing features between 'Painted Lady' and 'Calkins Gold' is that the latter lacks any red coloration to the petiole, the leaves are erect and lanceolate instead of pendant and deltate, and internodes are more compact than vining.
This purchase was a lot better than my previous one. Very please with this.
This plant arrived in pristine condition. The picture does it no justice. It's such a beauty.
Beautiful plant, arrived in perfect condition. Very happy with my new baby!
This is a cool looking plant!
I love my new plant. Hands down my favorite philodendron I own. Also the healthiest plant I have received in the mail
I was so excited when I received this Calkin’s Gold as the coloring is so vibrant and i just loved it!!! It may look like Painted Lady but there are so many differences between the two, and the fact that this will grow more compact it will always looks fuller. :)
I have been purchasing from Gabriella lately and so far they have been exceeding my expectations :) packaging are just superb!
The plant is super healthy and I absolutely love the coloring of the calkins gold! The soil was extremely wet when received, which led to some of the baby leaves at the bottom of the plant coming off, but it is bouncing back after allowing the soil to dry.
Beautiful plant! Highly recommend. Snag it!
