Philodendron Black Cardinal is a stunning dark foliage plant, its new growth emerges in a bright burgundy colour and gradually deepens to a gorgeous blackish green. Peaking out between its lush leaves are more deep burgundy red stems.
This gothic houseplant is fast growing and needs very little attention to thrive. It is particularly tolerant to neglect, lower light conditions and irregular watering. It's growth pattern would make it a fantastic floor plant.
The perfect low-maintenance plant for starting or expanding your indoor jungle.
Light: Tolerant of medium light to bright indirect light, however too much light can cause brown, crispy tips on the leaves and low light can slow down growth.
Water: Water when the top ⅓ portion of soil dries out. For best results water from underneath with the use of a saucer to reduce the chance of root rot. Reduce watering during winter months.
Food: Feed monthly during the growing season but not during winter.
Humidity: High humidity will produce a happier plant but will tolerate a normal household humidity. A low humidity will cause brown, crispy tips on the leaves.
Bought as a gift for a friend. She says it's beautiful ...so it must be!
