This Philodendron is a non-stop display of colour changes. It's new growth starts as a copper colour, then changes to a vibrant red, and finally to a deep shiny green. It is a very low maintenance plant, and a great air purifier.
Height: 12in - 40in
Spread: 12in - 40in
Pet Safe: Toxic to pets in ingested.
CareGeneral 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.
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.
