Deets: Unlike its tree-dwelling relatives, this eye-catching philodendron hybrid won't climb. It is a clump-forming plant growing from a ground-hugging rosette. Short, upright stems carry large, thick leaves. It will reach about 2-ft tall and spread about as wide. The good news is that Philodendron 'Prince of Orange' won't need staking. But if it gets too leggy, you can cut off some of the stems to keep the plant in shape.
Name(s): Philodendron 'Prince of Orange'
Light: Although Philodendron 'Prince of Orange' will tolerate lower light levels, its leaves will maintain their color better in bright light. Keep your philodendron plant in a bright location, but not into direct sunlight which can scorch its leaves. It thrives under fluorescent light too, making it an ideal office plant.
Water: Water thoroughly, then allow surface to dry out before watering again. Water sparingly in winter, when growth is slower, but don't allow potting medium to dry out. Yellow leaves are often caused by over-watering. Never allow the potting medium to become soggy, which can suffocate roots, leading to root rot; roots need air, too. Remember to always use tepid water for your houseplants because cold water is a shock to these warmth-loving tropicals.
Temperature: Average to warm room temperatures (70-85°F/21-29°C) year-round. Keep this tropical plant from cold blasts from windows and doorways, and away from heat/AC vents. It will tolerate a minimum of 60°F/16°C.
Grower: Beginners, all types.
Pet Friendly: No. Toxic to pets.
