Philodendron Black Cardinal has deep burgundy almost black leaves and red stems. If you’re into dark houseplants, this one is for you! As the leaves mature, they will turn to almost black and can reach an impressive size.
Unlike most Philodendron’s, Philodendron Black Cardinal does not climb nor vine meaning it will remain ‘basal’. Provide it a spot with bright indirect sunlight for best coloration.
Like all Philodendron’s its best to plant it in a loose soil and let the top 3-4cm of soil dry out between waterings. A mixture of perlite, bark, soil and charcoal has been proven to be the best potting mix for Philodendron’s. It will also grow well in 100% sphagnum moss or peat-perlite/vermiculite mix.
Size: about 24cm tall and comes in pot size 12.
