Plant Care Guide for Congo Rojo:

  1. Light Requirements: Place your 'Congo Rojo' Philodendron in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions but thrives in moderate to high light. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.

  2. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels slightly dry. Ensure proper drainage in the pot to prevent overwatering.

  3. Temperature and Humidity: Maintain a room temperature between 65-80°F (18-27°C). The 'Congo Rojo' Philodendron appreciates higher humidity levels. Regular misting or using a humidity tray can help create an ideal environment.

  4. Soil and Fertilization: Use a well-draining potting mix suitable for aroids. Feed your 'Congo Rojo' Philodendron with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).

  5. Pruning and Maintenance: Trim any brown or damaged leaves to encourage new growth and maintain the plant's appearance. You can also prune to control its size and shape.

  6. Toxicity: Philodendron plants, including 'Congo Rojo,' can be toxic if ingested. Keep it out of reach of pets and children.

  7. Pests: While relatively pest-resistant, occasional mealybugs or spider mites may appear. Use our Damn Bug! Organic Pesticide to treat and prevent any pest issues.
