The Philodendron 'Rojo Congo' has bold red stems which lead in to contrasting green leaves. This little guy will grow fast for you if you keep him in bright indirect light and fertilise regularly during the growing season.
Philodendron in general are a great plant for beginners, they are relatively low maintenance and are happy in a normal home environment.
Light: Tolerant of medium light to bright indirect light, however too much light can cause brown, crispy tips on the leaves.
Water: This plant likes to be moist but doesn’t want its roots to be constantly wet. 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 fortnightly 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.
The baby Philodendron ‘Rojo Congo’ arrived safely, having been very well packaged and protected for its journey. Although a small plant it has three large leaves, another large leaf about to emerge and with 4/5 smaller leaves at the base of the stem. All are healthy and glossy.
This is the first time I have purchased from the Moose Plant Shop, on the basis of this experience I will not hesitate to go to them again, and to recommend them to family and friends.
Can't fault a single thing. Plants always turn up on time and undamaged.
Scrapping the previous review, it came with the wrong heading. Maria took the time to explain that they were having a software issue!
I give a 5star!
