Philodendron Congo Appearance
Philodendron Congo Care
Philodendron Congos grow well in normal household temperatures between 70°-85°F (21.1° 29.4°C). Keep these plants away from cold drafts and air conditioners.
A Philodendron Congo can grow almost anywhere except in the direct sun. In low light the plant often looks stretched out as it tries to reach for the light.
Always allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering a Philodendron. When watering, cover the entire surface to prevent leaf problems because of dry soil areas.
Higher humidity is a plus, but philodendrons do well in basic household humidity.
Use a rich quick-draining soil for philodendrons. You may have to add a little sand to your usual soil mix.
Growers use tissue cultures to propagate this Philodendron hybrid. You can use off- shoots or air layering if you want to try to propagate a Congo.
Philodendron Hybrid is toxic if ingested. Keep away from pets and small children. It may also cause skin irritation.
Fertilize monthly only when the plant is actively growing with a balanced food at 1/2 the recommended strength. If the plant is not producing new leaves, it doesn’t need plant food.
