Boasting larges leaves with a truly tropical feel, the Philodendron Congo adds a splash of color to any home. This exotic tropical plant is suprisingly easygoing. While in the wild, it would climb a tree trunk or wall, Congos can grow low and bushy in containers to add the elegance of the jungle.

Yellowing, mushy leaves are an indication of overwatering. Leaves will be limp when thirsty and will bounce back up when fully hydrated. Mist leaves daily, and/or keep on a pebble tray of water. Keep away from AC & heat drafts to ensure adequate humidity levels. Wipe down leaves monthly with a neem oil application to prevent pests.
Native to South America. This Philodendron is different to its counterparts in that it does not have a vine or creeping habit but rather has an upright tree like shape.
