Our Philodendron Congo Rojo comes in a 14cm Nursery Pot. 

The Philodendron Black Cardinal is one of those truly fascinating foliage houseplants, prized for its large foliage that changes with age, starting out a brilliant burgundy then fading through shades of deep green into almost black. Not only does this plant make a statement but is truly eye-catching when you feel the need to add a touch of contrast among the greens.

As with all Philodendron, the Black Cardinal houseplant has a super care friendly nature and will create that instant jungle vibe in any home. Ideal for all levels of plant parents, be you a beginner or expert.

This low maintenance,  ornamental plant does well in medium to bright light conditions and prefers warmer temperatures, so avoid cool corners or chilly drafts to keep it thriving.

Pair this lush beauty with a palm leaf basket or contrasting planter for a gorgeous standout display. 

Please note: Philodendron can cause illness if eaten, keep out of reach of pets and hungry children.

Follow these instructions to keep your Philodendron Black Cardinal healthy and happy.

Water: Keep potting mixture moist to the touch during the summer months but allow to dry well during winter.
Light: Medium to bright light conditions, but no direct sunlight
Humidity: Appreciates humidity but will happily live in average room humidity conditions.
Fertilize: Feed every 2 weeks with a balanced fertilizer during the growing season of Spring through Summer, avoid feeding in Winter.
