Philodendron Imperial Red | Philodendron Imperial Red

I am a decorative foliage plant with large leathery leaves. When my leaves come out they are bright red but they'll darken as they mature, turning deep purple, and finally a dark glossy green.

Useful to know:

Origin

I can be found in the West Indies and the Tropical Rainforests of Central and South America.

Height/Growth

I grow fairly quickly and can reach as high as 120cm indoors.

Light

I like moderate to brighly lit rooms, but can tolerate some shade. Keep me away from direct sunlight.

Water

Keep me lightly moist but let the top inch of my soil dry between waterings to ensure my roots don't rot.

Temperature

A warm environment is best, I'll suffer if I'm in a room below 12°C.

Feeding

Feed me with diluted liquid fertiliser every 2-3 times over spring and Summer.

Grooming

Dust my brilliant leaves to keep them looking tip-top, and to allow me to photosynthesise correctly.

Care

I can get brown leaves if you leave me in sunlight, and if you over or under water me. Too much light will cause brown spots. Too much water will make me wilt and too little water will give me dry tips and edges.

Toxicity

I contain calcium oxalate crystals which are poisonous. Keep me away from children and pets and take care when handling.

Fact

With my robust foliage, I am a champion air purifier. Pop me in an enclosed office or in the home and I will absorb some of the nasties in the air. Click here to buy Philodendron Imperial Red.
