The Rojo Congo Philo is species of philodendrons, a very large genus of plants which has more than 500 species categorized under family araceae.  This beauty is a cross between the beloved Imperial Red and Tatei. 

Like many variants of the classic Philodendron houseplant, new growth appears as a striking accent, and the Rojo Congo sports a striking red stem with a burnt orange/green gradient on new growth as it hardens.

Care

Light: Philodendrons do well in a range of light conditions. They prefer moderate to bright indirect light, but can tolerate shadier lighting conditions as well. Avoid direct sunight.

Water: Keep the soil moist at all times. Allow the top of the soil to dry out slightly before re-watering. Will tolerate some degree of drought better than having its roots too wet. 

Temperature/Humidity:  Average to warm household temperatures from 18-28°C and short periods down to 12°C at an absolute push. Avoid cold draughts. Comfortable in average household humidity.

Care Tips: Wipe leaves with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust. Please note, leaves can develop yellow patches after a change in temperature or environment. These can be removed at the base of the stem if required

*Philodendrons are toxic to cats and dogs. Do not consume*

Philodendrons were part of NASA clean air study and found effective in improving indoor air quality by removing formaldehyde.
