This stunning new plant is the king of Philodendrons and has wonderfully delicate leaves and deep purple stems and leaves. The new growth unfurls into delicate deep burgundy coloured leaves, fading to black, and finally to dark rich green leaves as the plant matures. We have a very limited quantity of these beautiful, new Philodendrons Congo and they really are very special. The reason Philodendron Congo make such amazing indoor plants is that they adapt to a wide variety of lighting and water conditions in the wild and so will thrive indoors very well. The plants have large, green, dark leaves which allow them to absorb even the tiniest traces of light and water in the wild or at home.
If you love interesting foliage, this Philodendron Congo is easy to care for and is a perfect addition to your collection. A rainforest regular hailing originally from South America and it really brings a touch of the exotic! Brighten up dreary days by looking at your Philodendron and imagining hot, moist heat and birds screeching, let yourself be carried away to the jungle!
The Philodendron Congo aren’t hard to look after, they will thrive in the shade which makes them ideal if you have no experience of looking after houseplants. It also means they aren’t hard to situate in your home, they will love any corner of any room really, in the sun or in the shade.
