Plant Features

The Prismacolor™ Sun Red Philodendron, also known as the Rojo Congo Philodendron, is a stunning houseplant with vibrant reddish-purple foliage. Its heart-shaped leaves emerge with a coppery hue, gradually maturing to a deep burgundy-red color. The undersides of the leaves boast a contrasting lime green, adding a touch of intrigue to the plant's overall appearance. This Philodendron cultivar has a compact and upright growth habit, making it an excellent choice for desktops, shelves, or windowsills.

For trouble shooting, excessive leaf drop can be caused by overwatering, underwatering, or sudden changes in temperature or humidity. Ensure the plant receives adequate water, avoid overwatering, and maintain consistent environmental conditions. Leaf pale color, characterized by fading or washed-out hues, indicates insufficient light. Move the plant to a location with brighter indirect light. Philodendron plants are susceptible to mealybugs, spider mites, and thrips. Regularly inspect the leaves for signs of pests and treat promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Root bound plants, characterized by stunted growth and difficulty absorbing water, may require repotting in a larger container. Gently remove the plant from its pot and check the roots. If they are tightly wrapped around the root ball, repot the plant in fresh potting mix.
