The Congo Green Philodendron is a hardy tropical plant native to South America. This unique plant has an upright growth habit, which differs from other philodendrons since it doesn’t trail or vine. Its thick leaves are strikingly glossy and dark green. As the Congo Green Philodendron matures, it grows up and out, reaching up to 4ft tall. This plant is fairly low maintenance and will look great in any home or office. 

Best Locations For Growing Congo Green Philodendron 

The Congo Green Philodendron will tolerate bouts of dryness and low humidity. This plant is a perfect choice for growing indoors in homes and offices. Place it on a shelf to fill a space where other plants might not be able to thrive, and this plant will handle it like a champ. 

Congo Green Philodendron Sunlight Requirements

This philodendron appreciates bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions, but ideally should be placed near an east- or west-facing window. More indirect sunlight will help this plant grow faster and thrive. 

Congo Green Philodendron Care

The Congo Green Philodendron is from a tropical climate and prefers a high temperature and humidity level. Regular household temperatures of around 70 degrees should be perfect for your plant. For extra humidity, consider placing a humidifier nearby or misting the plant regularly. You should repot this plant when roots are coming out of the pot’s drainage hole. 

Watering Congo Green Philodendron 

As epiphytes with aerial roots, the Congo Green is sensitive to overwatering. Make sure to give it a period to dry out between waterings; wait approximately 7-10 days between watering this plant as a good rule of thumb. 

Feeding Congo Green Philodendron 

Use an all-purpose, balanced fertilizer about once a month during the growing season to feed your Congo Green.
