Philodendron Prince of Orange

$15

Philodendron 'Prince of Orange' is a Philodendron hybrid that grows up to 2 feet tall. It is self-heading rather than vining, meaning it grows in more of a clumping form, with the large leaves growing from a central base. Eventually, the older leaves will fall off, making way for new growth. Its leaves start out a bright coppery orange colour, changing to light green as they age.

They do not need to see the sun directly. But filtered sunlight through glass is fine. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day, like somewhere shady outside or inside behind a window.
A low light plant can pretty much survive anyplace inside your home as long as you have a small window or you have lights on at night.
They like the soil to be completely dry before the next watering. That usually takes about two weeks in an average home environment. It may vary depends on your environment and light condition, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water like floppy, droop, or soft leaves.
They can live in any humidity condition.
Philodendron Prince of Orange can survive in low light conditions, but grows faster and produces more leaves in medium or bright indirect light. If the leaves are pale in colour, the plant may be getting too much light. Do not put it in direct sunlight–the sun will burn the foliage.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will thrive in medium to bright light, but also can tolerate low light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed almost anywhere in the room but remember, plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They like the soil to be relatively dry before the next watering. That usually takes about 2 weeks in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. droopy, floppy, or soft leaves). Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They can live in any average home humidity condition and are fairly hardy.

Although they can survive in lower light conditions, they will grow much fuller and faster, producing more leaves, in medium or bright indirect light. If the leaves are pale in colour, the plant may be getting too much light. Do not put it in direct sunlight as the sun will scorch the foliage.
