Sun: Indirect

Avoid placing the plants where they can directly receive sunlight, but early morning or late evening sun exposure is acceptable. Optimal conditions include filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain, as most homes offer indirect sunlight. Ideally, position them in areas with bright, indirect light and minimal direct sun exposure throughout the day for optimal growth.

Light: Medium

Optimal conditions for the Philodendron Red Congo include medium to bright light, although it can thrive in medium light as well. Positioning the plant in a spot with ample natural light, such as near a regular-sized window in the center of a room, promotes healthy growth. It's important to note that the rate of growth is influenced by the amount of light the plant receives, so providing sufficient light ensures robust development.

Water: When half dry

Water your Philodendron Red Congo when the top half of the soil feels dry to the touch, typically every week in a standard indoor setting. However, factors such as seasonal changes, your home's environment, and lighting conditions may affect watering frequency. To prevent overwatering, it's advisable to err on the side of underwatering and always check the soil moisture before watering again. Note that brighter light conditions may necessitate more frequent watering, while lower light conditions may require less frequent watering.

Humidity: Medium

In moderate humidity conditions, Philodendron Red Congo plants thrive, but they can benefit from slightly higher humidity levels. Consider misting them daily or using a humidifier to create a more favorable environment for optimal growth.

Pet Friendly: Caution

While Philodendron Red Congo adds beauty to your space, it's essential to note that it's moderately toxic if ingested by pets. As a precaution, it's advisable to keep it out of reach from curious pets. However, if your pets typically avoid munching on plants, this stunning specimen can still thrive safely in your home.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
