Deets: The Congo Rojo is a unique tropical plant native to South America. This plant is different than most philodendrons as its stems will not grow in a vine like habit. It gets its name from the red underside on each of its large burgundy-green leaves.
Name(s): 'Congo Rojo' Philodendron
Water: Through Spring and Summer the soil should be kept moist but during winter the soil should be allowed to dry out between waterings. Always loves a good misting.
Light: This plant is relatively durable and it can thrive in many different conditions but it is more suited to bright light but not direct sun, as direct sun will burn the plant. It can, however, cope with low light but the coloring will fade.
Grower: Beginners, all types.
Size: 10" nursery pot
Pet Friendly: No, this plant is toxic to pets
Extra Info: Most philodendrons exhibit a fast growth pattern and the philodendron rojo is no exception. With a size that can reach 10 x 10 feet, you’re going to need to control its growth by cutting it back whenever necessary. Because it can spread to as much as its height, it also needs quite a bit of space around it. This is not a small apartment plant. It requires quite a bit of space and looks best in larger homes or offices.
