  • Philodendron Rojo Congo is native to South America, specifically regions in Brazil and neighboring countries. Its natural habitat is the rainforests, where it thrives in the warm and humid climate. This philodendron typically grows upright with a bushy habit, making it a fantastic choice for enhancing interior decor or filling a corner that needs a dramatic touch.

    Rojo Congo's most notable feature is its deep, velvety, burgundy-red leaves. These large, heart-shaped leaves have a glossy sheen, adding a touch of luxury to any space. The contrast between the red foliage and the plant's green stems creates an exquisite visual display.

    As with many Philodendrons, the Rojo Congo contributes to improved indoor air quality by helping to remove common pollutants and toxins, making your home a healthier place to live. It's also considered relatively easy to care for, making it a good choice for both novice and experienced plant enthusiasts.

    Philodendron Rojo Congo is not primarily grown for its flowers, and it is relatively rare for it to produce blooms when cultivated as a houseplant. However, when it does flower, the blooms are typically inconspicuous and pale in color.

  • Rojo Congo prefers bright, indirect sunlight, but it also tolerates medium light conditions.It needs at least a few hours of light daily. Avoid harsh direct sun to prevent scorching leaves.

    This plant prefers slightly moist but not waterlogged soil. Water thoroughly and drain well after each watering. Check the soil twice per week and only water when the top 1" of the soil is dry to the touch.

    Rojo Congo likes rich soil that can retain some moisture, but the soil should also drain well to prevent root rot. It is recommended that you mix some peat with general houseplant soil to improve drainage.

    This plant grows best in normal room temperatures (between 65°F-80°F). It does not grow well in temperatures below 50°F and over 90°F. Red Congo thrives in normal indoor humidity, and it is recommended that you mist your plant and use a humidifier when the environment is too dry (humidity level falls below 50%).

    This plant should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.

    Rojo Congo plant is toxic if ingested, so keep it out of reach of pets and children.

    When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive.

  • It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
