The Story

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

5 out of 5 stars

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.
