Philodendron 'Cream Splash', known for its striking variegated foliage, is a popular houseplant among enthusiasts. This variety of Philodendron is appreciated for its decorative leaves and relatively straightforward care. Here’s a detailed guide to help you care for your Philodendron 'Cream Splash':


  • Appearance: The 'Cream Splash' has heart-shaped leaves that are a mix of green and creamy white variegation. The pattern of variegation can vary significantly from leaf to leaf, adding to its unique charm.
  • Growth Pattern: It exhibits a trailing or climbing habit, making it versatile for different indoor settings. When provided with a support like a moss pole, it can grow upwards; otherwise, it will cascade beautifully in a hanging basket.

Care Guide

  1. Light Requirements:

    • Prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the variegated leaves, while too little light can cause the variegation to fade and the plant to become leggy.
    • A position near an east or west-facing window is ideal, where it can receive filtered sunlight.
  2. Watering:

    • Water when the top inch of the soil feels dry. Over-watering can lead to root rot, so ensure the pot has good drainage.
    • Water less frequently in winter when the plant's growth naturally slows.
  3. Humidity and Temperature:

    • Thrives in a humid environment. If your home is dry, consider using a humidifier, or placing the plant on a pebble tray with water.
    • Prefers temperatures between 18°C and 27°C. Avoid placing it in draughty areas or near heat sources.
  4. Soil and Fertilisation:

    • Use a well-draining potting mix, ideally one that's rich in organic matter.
    • Fertilise every month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertiliser. Reduce fertilising in autumn and winter.
  5. Pruning and Repotting:

    • Prune as needed to control growth or to remove any yellow or damaged leaves.
    • Repot every 2-3 years or when the plant becomes root-bound. Use a slightly larger pot each time to encourage growth.
  6. Pest and Disease Management:

    • Watch out for pests like spider mites and mealybugs. Treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
    • Avoid over-watering to prevent fungal diseases.
  7. Propagation:

    • Easily propagated through stem cuttings. Place a cutting with at least one node in water or directly into soil to root.

Additional Tips

  • Support for Climbing: If you prefer a climbing Philodendron, provide a moss pole or trellis for support.
  • Variegation Care: To maintain the variegation, ensure that the plant receives sufficient light. However, too much direct sunlight can cause the variegated parts to burn.
  • Leaf Cleaning: Regularly clean the leaves to remove dust and enhance photosynthesis.

Philodendron 'Cream Splash' is an attractive and relatively low-maintenance plant that can add a touch of elegance to any indoor space. With proper care, it can thrive and become a long-lasting addition to your collection of houseplants.
