Philodendron mandaianum 'Ruby"... This Philodendron is rarely offered and a very easy guy indeed. The dark green leaves are broadly arrow-shaped with prominent rounded ears. Young foliage is a deep bronzy green colour, with a beautiful ruby red stems. These grow pretty tall very similar to the Philodendron red emerald.

 

Care: A bright position would be ideal, but he will also tolerate low light. Keep the soil moist.

When I water my plants I always check the soil first by sticking my finger about 3 cm down to check if it still feels damp I also tend to look underneath the plant at the drainage holes and if the soil is damp I hold off until next time. I generally feed all my plants once a month or weakly weekly.  

 

Providing your plants with a good level of humidity can really help them flourish also help stop their tips from going brown and crispy! You can help raise the humidity by misting regularly, placing your plants on a moist pebbles tray also grouping your plants closer together or even a humidifier.

 

Other information:

Size: Pot Diameter 13cm - Total height is approximately 30-35cm

Toxicity: Toxic to pets and humans

Difficulty: Easy peasy

Feeding: General, the majority of houseplants should be fed every 2nd watering during the growing season (Spring and Summer), for me, it's about which every 14 days. In autumn and winter, I feed less, as indoor plants will require fewer nutrients.
