Philodendron Black Congo

Philodendron, derived from Greek Philo (love) and Dendron (Tree) is a classy tropical plant grown for its foliage. Native of the American Tropics, Philos have travelled around the world and have been naturalised across tropical Asia and parts of Australia. Grown ornamentally for their foliage, these plants are collected for their spectacular leaf forms, variegation and leaf fenestration. Philodendrons evolved under the forest canopy and hence love shaded conditions outdoors or in areas of filtered light, indoors. They are moisture lovers, needing additional humidity in drier parts of India.

Adopting and caring for Philodendron Black Congo

Adopting: Adding a well-grown Philodendron to a plant collection is a feeling only a plant parent can understand. At eplants, we bring you display-ready, well-trained plants with high-quality growth and lush leaves.
Locating: Philodendrons are shade growers that thrive in medium to bright light even though they are known to tolerate low light conditions too. If you are locating them indoors, it?s best to rotate the plants around once every few weeks, giving them a bright window or a balcony for a few days.
Potting: Philodendrons do not need any special type of potting soil. Being tropical natives, they do well in any well-drained potting soil, rich with organic material. Use a mix of coco-peat, compost, sand in 20:60:20 ratio.
Watering: Overwatering is the chief cause of disease or loss of plant life. While Philodendrons need regular watering, do ensure that you don’t overwater them. To get the plants to show off their richly coloured leaves, it is best to wipe them clean with moist tissue or cloth once every month. In drier months, misting them a few times a week could help improve humidity around the plant, helping them flourish.
Fertilising: Feeding your Philodendron a few times a year is a good way to get them to stay healthy. Give them some organic liquid fertiliser once or twice a year. Dilute it in water as described on the pack and add a little to each pot as part of your watering routine. If you are using a chemical fertiliser, do ensure that you keep it away from the plant and its base.
A Philodendron is an easy to care plant. You can take cuttings of any stem from the plant, place it in a bottle or jar of water, and in days it will begin to root. Even in just water, these clippings will continue to grow and leaf out.

Did you know?

A Philodendron can tear up! If you overwater this wonderful plant it won’t sit in wet roots as fussier plants do. It will absorb all the water and then releases the excess through its leaves.

    I bought a ficus elastica variegated ruby, and the plant arrived in beautiful condition. The packaging was also brilliant and the plant arrived with 0 transit damage, which is usually what I worry about when I’m getting plants from out of my city. I also really appreciate the in depth explanations about the plant and it’s care that’s provided on the website.
    I’ve just had the most wonderful plant experience with them! In fact, I just bought 3 more plants, even though I told myself that I shouldn’t get any more plants for the time being ??
