45 - 55cm Philodendron Purple Congo 21cm Pot House Plant
Philodendron Purple Congo is a tropical plant with vibrant purple leaves that can add a pop of color to any indoor space. Here are some tips for caring for your Philodendron Purple Congo:
Light: Philodendron Purple Congo prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while too little light can cause the plant to lose its color. It can tolerate some low light conditions, but growth may be slower.
Water: Water your Philodendron Purple Congo when the top inch of soil is dry. Do not let the soil dry out completely, as this can cause the leaves to wilt. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so be careful not to let the plant sit in standing water.
Humidity: Philodendron Purple Congo likes high humidity. You can increase the humidity around the plant by placing a tray of water nearby, using a humidifier, or grouping it with other plants.
Temperature: Philodendron Purple Congo prefers temperatures between 60-80°F (15-26°C). It is important to keep the plant away from cold drafts and air conditioning.
Soil: Philodendron Purple Congo prefers well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter.
Fertilizer: Feed your Philodendron Purple Congo with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Do not fertilize during the winter months.
Pruning: Prune your Philodendron Purple Congo to maintain its shape and encourage bushier growth. You can also remove any yellowing or damaged leaves.
By following these tips, you can help your Philodendron Purple Congo thrive and add a pop of color to your indoor space.
