DESCRIPTION: Ornamental plant with big glossy leaves which start off deep red-brown and gradually mature to green-burgundy. Usually stays compact. USE IN: Plant as a border in tropical style gardens and shaded underplanting. Perfect indoors in pots PLANTING: Needs a warm frost-free position, avoid direct hot sunlight. Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Plant away from areas where children and pets play as the leaves contain a poisonous substance. Avoid contact with skin. CARE: For best results provide plenty of bright, filtered light. Protect from cold and keep moist during dry periods. Philodendrons thrive in humid conditions, mist regularly. Apply a slow release fertiliser during spring and a liquid based fertiliser every 2-4 weeks during the warmer months, take care to dilute your solution to half the recommended dose to avoid burn. For indoor plants - wipe leaves gently with a damp cloth if you notice them collecting dust, this will refresh the foliage to its usual glossy finish. Re-pot container plants at the beginning of spring. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 1-2m H x 1m W.
