Philodendron Orange Prince Overview

Philodendron Orange Prince likes a position in bright, indirect light, in well-draining soil for optimal growth. It also benefits from the highest humidity you can provide! This tropical plant is a fiendishly popular houseplant in many areas. However, finding one is another story! Philodendron erubescens 'Prince of Orange' is an evergreen perennial cultivar in the Araceae family. It climbs through aerial roots and will benefit from a moss pole to encourage its climbing habit. The leaves are the main reason for growing Orange Philodendron. Foliage is glossy and coloured green. New leaves emerge a fantastic orange colour, later developing to green. The leaves are oval in shape and grow to around 20cm in length. Mature plants may produce red-purple flowering spathes, but this is rare.
