ABOUT THE PLANT

Philodendron Black Congo, also known as Philodendron 'Black Cardinal' or Philodendron 'Black Congo,' is a striking cultivar of Philodendron known for its dark-colored foliage. Here is some information about Philodendron Black Congo:

  1. Appearance: Philodendron Black Congo features large, heart-shaped leaves that are a deep, rich shade of green with a velvety texture. As the plant matures, the leaves develop a glossy, almost black color, which gives it its name. The new leaves emerge as a vibrant coppery-red color before gradually darkening.

  2. Growth habit: This Philodendron variety has an upright growth habit. It typically grows to a height of around 2 to 3 feet (60 to 90 cm), forming a compact and bushy plant. The leaves emerge from a central stem, and the plant develops a dense and full appearance.

  3. Light requirements: Philodendron Black Congo thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions, but it may exhibit slower growth and less intense leaf coloration. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

  4. Temperature and humidity: This plant prefers temperatures between 65°F and 85°F (18°C to 29°C) and appreciates higher humidity levels. It can adapt to average household humidity, but it will benefit from increased humidity. Regular misting, using a humidifier, or placing the plant on a pebble tray filled with water can help create a more humid environment.

  5. Watering: Water the Philodendron Black Congo thoroughly when the top inch (2.5 centimeters) of soil feels dry. Allow the excess water to drain out from the pot to prevent waterlogged roots. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.
