Philodendron Purple Congo
A fairly rare new Philodendron variety the Purple Congo has dark purple tinged green leaves. … It has a unique shape and structure created by crossing over stems and leaves in different shades. It requires bright conditions with mainly indirect light and regular watering.
Need to water about every week or two. When watering, feel the surface of the soil; if it is dry to touch, water your Congo just enough to moisten the soil through.
Requires plenty of indirect sunlight for best growth. The wide and dark green leaves are indicative that it is a bright shade plant. In fact the plant loses the red tinting in the leaves in prolonged and dense shade.
The soil of the Philodendron ‘Purple Congo‘ must stay quite moist, but its excess moisture should be drained through a hole at the bottom of its container.
