Philodendron ‘Rojo Congo’ is a large plant with thick, shiny, smooth-edged leaves.
Its new foliage is brown to coppery red, maturing to dark green with a reddish blush, but the fleshy leaf stems remain maroon
Rojo Congo is different from many other philodendrons in that it doesn’t have a climbing or vining habit. Growing instead in a “self-heading” manner, it grows both outward and upward, peaking at about 2 feet in height and 2 ½ feet in width.
It needs at least partial shade to prevent scorching by the sun, and it will tolerate full shade. The plant is a very heavy feeder and does well with two or three applications per year of slow release fertilizer.
These Rojo Congo's are growing at an alarming rate. We have decided to reduce the price of the last few. A couple have started to lean towards the light but this will just take a few days to rectify.
