This low growing Philodendron variety is so exciting to watch as it matures.  New growth starts out as a redish-bronze colour, then turns to a deep green, and eventually to an almost black as it ages. 



Type: Tropical 
Height: 12in - 30in
Spread: 12in - 36in
Zone: 9-11
Pet Safe: Mildly toxic to pets if ingested


General Maintenance: Ensure your pot has adequate drainage to avoid root rot.  Repot every 1-2 years as needed.  Trim away any dead leaves, as necessary.  Easily propagated from cuttings with nodes, or by division. 

Temperature: Thrives in normal household temperatures, between 15º-26º Celsius.   Keep away from drafts and drastic temperature changes.

Light: Can tolerate lower light conditions, but will grow fastest in bright, indirect light.  Avoid direct sunlight, as it may scorch the leaves.  

Watering: Water thoroughly, then allow the top 50% of the soil to dry before watering again.  Yellow leaves may indicate overwatering, while brown leaves may indicate that your plant needs more water. 

Soil: Any well-draining potting mix.

Fertilizer: Philodendrons are not heavy feeders, but will benefit from a balanced houseplant fertilizer every 3 weeks or so, during the spring and summer.
