Philodendron 'Congo Green' Care Tips

How to care for information:

  • Binomial name: Philodendron tatei ‘Congo Green’
  • The thin leaves are susceptible to burning in direct sunlight. Instead place your plant in a location with bright, indirect sunlight.
  • Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10.
  • Stem cuttings can be placed in moist soil or water until it forms roots that are about 2-3” long then transplant to moist soil. Take a cutting with a node (where the petiole meets the main stem).
  • Use a well-draining, high organic matter soil mix.

Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10.
