Philodendron Imperial Red
A lush, decorative foliage plant with large, oval, leathery leaves. Young leaves are a bright red, maturing to burgundy red-purple and ultimately dark glossy green. Philodendron Imperial Red has a compact, bushy habit.
A great low maintenance option and shade tolerant into the bargain. Ideal for adding interest and air-purifying benefits to the home or office.
Origin: West Indies and Tropical Rainforests of Central and South America
Height: 120cm indoors
Light: Best in moderate to bright, indirect light but can tolerate shady spots too. Avoid direct sunlight.
Water: Keep the soil moist at all times. Allow the top of the soil to dry out slightly before re-watering. Will tolerate some degree of drought better than having its roots too wet.
Temperature: Average to warm household temperatures from 18-28°C and short periods down to 12°C at an absolute push. Avoid cold draughts.
