Introducing McColley's Philodendrons, a unique variety of philodendrons that stands out with its remarkable name and captivating copper-coloured foliage. Philodendron Mccolley's Finale is not considered a rare plant, but it is not as common as some other Philodendron varieties. It is a relatively new hybrid, first introduced in the 1990s. It is also a slow-growing plant, which can make it more difficult to find.
The rarity of Philodendron Mccolley's Finale can vary depending on where you live. It may be relatively easy to find in some areas, while in others, it may be more difficult. This plant has become increasingly popular in recent years, which has led to an increase in demand. This can make it more challenging to find the plant, especially in areas where it is less common.
McColley's Philodendrons are native to the lush tropical rainforests of Central and South America. In their natural habitat, they thrive under the dense canopy, receiving filtered sunlight and enjoying warm, humid conditions.
One of the distinguishing features of McColley's Philodendrons is their striking copper colouration. When young, the leaves emerge in a mesmerising shade of copper, creating a visual spectacle that adds warmth and vibrancy to any indoor space. As the leaves mature, they gradually harden and transition to a rich green colour, showcasing a delightful contrast between the new growth and the established foliage.
Caring for McColley's Philodendrons is relatively straightforward, making them a great choice for plant enthusiasts of all levels. Here are some essential care tips to keep your philodendron thriving:
Light Requirements: McColley's Philodendrons prefer bright, indirect light. Place them near a window with filtered sunlight, ensuring they are shielded from intense, direct sunlight, which can cause leaf burn.
Temperature and Humidity: These philodendrons thrive in average room temperatures ranging from 18°C to 24°C (65°F to 75°F). They appreciate moderate to high humidity levels, so misting the leaves or placing a humidifier nearby can help create a suitable environment.
Watering: Water your McColley's Philodendron when the top inch of soil feels dry. Allow excess water to drain away, as overwatering can lead to root rot.
Soil and Potting: Plant your McColley's Philodendron in well-draining potting soil. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and compost works well to provide proper drainage and nutrition for the plant.
How big does a Philodendron Mccolley's Finale get? Under ideal conditions, a Philodendron Mccolley's Finale can reach 1-3 feet tall and wide in 1 year.
What are the main differences between Philodendron Mccolley's Finale and Philodendron Prince of Orange? The main differences are in their leaf coloration and shape. Both plants are of similar size, but Mccolley leaves are more oval, heart-shaped, and red-colored vs. Prince of Orange leaves, which tend to be more orange and elongated.
Fertilising: To promote healthy growth, feed your philodendron with a balanced, water-soluble fertiliser during the growing season (spring and summer).
