Description

One of the newer cultivars of the philodendron family, the Red Congo gets its name from the unique color of its leaves. Unlike other philodendrons, is not a climber and is instead considered a “self-heading” plant, growing new foliage from a single stalk at its base. As such, this plant easily maintains its elegant and erect form over time.

Gorgeous Plants

The plants were in great condition because the packaging is rock solid. All three plants were very healthy. Only improvement I'd ask for is design a pot with a drainage hole. Most plants need watered all the way through and dont want to sit in water. Design a base to go with the pot and the stands.
