Just as in nature, all plants are different... so these pictures only illustrate one of our plants!


Origin: South-American rainforests. 
Personality: Killing it would be a true performance!
Earmark: Its exceptional multicolor variegations, unique in the Philodendron species.
Say Something Smart: The origin of this hybrid is still quite unsure, but its red stems and leaves-shape indicate a probable hybridation from a Philodendron Erubescens, making it part of the beautiful family of Pink Princesses and Painted Ladies.


Which pot? 

A planter is beautiful, but never put your plant directly in it. Leave it in its original pot until Spring, and only repot it if it seems cramped. The ideal container: the terracotta pot with draining holes.

Finding its place

Brightness: Good level of brightness, as close as possible from a window but no direct sun.
Avoid letting it feel draughts near the windows and take it away from heating sources.
Humidity: 50 % or more.
Tip : Spray its leaves with water (ideally rain-water) once a week. 
Tip 2 : Place some wet clay pebbles under the pot, so they keep diffusing humidity. 
Temperature: Min : 18°C | Max : 27°C | Ideal : 20-22°C

Careful: high dosage ingestion of the plant can lead to risks for your pets.
Make sure to keep it away from them and don't serve it for their dinner ;-)

Day-to-day care

Watering (purely indicative, depends on your local environment): once a week in Spring/Summer, and once every 10 days in Autumn and Winter.
Tip : Put your knuckle in the ground. If it feels totally dry, add some water to keep the soil wet (but not soaking it). 
Fertilizer: Prefer a slow release fertilizer to renew every 3 months. Some great ones exist in the shape of sticks to put in the substrate.
