    An easy plant to grow that will add colour and shape to a room. Philodendrons have been popular houseplants for some time now as they are fast growing with glossy heart-shaped leaves. This variety also has noticeable red stems to contrast against the lush foliage. A great climber, it will be delivered growing up a moss pole.

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Water freely when in growth, but keep drier in winter. Mist the leaves regularly with water to increase humidity and every so often put it under a cold shower to wash off the leaves. Make sure the winter temperatures stay above 10°C, and repot every couple of years.
  • Harmful if eaten/skin & eye irritant
