Why is Lemon-Lime Philodendron so difficult to find?
I've been searching high and low for the chartreuse variety of Heart Leaf Philodendron (I've seen it called 'Lemon-Lime' and 'Lemon Glow' and 'Aureum' ... Not sure which is most common). I haven't found it at any of the Houston nurseries I've been to, and Hirt's is sold out. There are a couple listed on ebay, but I want them for a mass indoor planting and I'll need about 8 of them if they come in 4-inch pots. Are these normally this difficult to find? I'm pretty new to house plants and I read that 'Lemon-Lime' behaves more or less like the more common types of Heart Leaf Philodendron, so I'm just wondering why such an attractive, easy care plant would be so rare.
