A Philodendron Congo is one of several cultivars of Philodendron that has been developed by growers over the last few years. This is a plant that can adapt to all kinds of conditions as long as you keep it warm. Its care instructions can be used for the following other Philodendron hybrids: Imperial Red, Black Cardinal, Moonlight, Red Emerald, and Autumn. Many Philodendrons are climbers, but not this one. A Congo is a self-header that spreads outward as it grows upward. The glossy dark green thick leaves are spaced very close to each other on a single stem. The stiff, barely visible stem, keeps the Congo upright and elegant looking as it matures.
These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants
