How to care for your Philodendron Imperial Red?
The Philodendron Imperial Red will love a spot in bright but indirect sunlight. It will tolerate darker spots but the leaves probably will not grow bigger and the plant might not grow so fast in general.
Watering your plant once a week should be fine. Of course this will depend on your local climate and time of the year. It is recommended to keep the soil a little moist in between waterings.
The Philodendron Imperial Red doesn’t have many requirements. Make sure the soil has good drainage by using perlite or pot it up in a hydroponic solution.
This Philodendron Imperial Red is a real though one and can survive in any home. A humidity between 50% and 70% would be fine for your plant.
In the summer months you can fertilise the plant once every week. In the colder and winter months no fertiliser is needed. Please always check the instructions on your own fertiliser if it has other care instructions.
The best time to repot is during the beginning of the growing season. Check if your plant is root bound in it’s nursery pot. Then it’s time to move it to a bigger size pot of around 2 cm extra.
The Philodendron is toxic for humans and animals if ingested.
