For a long flowering season 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.
Water the plant when the top inch of soil is dry. Water moderately and regularly so that the soil is consistently moist, but not soggy. Clean the leaves occasionally by wiping them down with a soft, damp cloth.
The Rojo Congo Philodendron will thrive in bright, indirect light but will be perfectly fine in extremely low levels of sunlight as well. Avoid placing her in direct sun, as the rays can scorch the leaves.
