The shiny leaves are heart-shaped. This plant can grow to around 3 feet tall and wide at maturity. The red congo philodendron has an upright, shrubby habit, in contrast to most other philodendrons which have a vining nature.

How to Care

This philodendron prefers bright, indirect light. It can, however, adapt to lower light conditions. Direct sunlight can burn the leaves so use caution when putting this plant outside or in front of a sunny window. If the light is uneven rotate your congo rojo philodendron every few weeks to ensure even growth. 

Good quality organic planting mix is perfect for this plant. They enjoy well-draining soil. 

The water requirements for this plant are low to moderate. Water it when the soil dries. Test the soil moisture by putting your finger down about 2 inches into the soil. If it is dry go ahead and water. If it is wet, hold off for a few more days. Watering thoroughly about once per week usually works well for the congo rojo philodendron. 

Fertilize 2 to 3 times per year with a balanced slow release fertilizer

This plant is fast growing and will need to be repotted every so often. When you notice the roots taking over the soil and/or the soil not holding water well it is time to repot. Choose a container with good drainage that is slightly larger than the existing pot. 

Trim back any dead or dying leaves. This is a natural process, but feel free to prune anytime to keep your plant looking nice.
