Philodendron 'Imperial Green'
Philodendron Imperial Green is a cultivar of Philodendron erubescens which originated from Columbia. Its name comes from its large glossy green leaves. This plant is perfect for removing harmful toxins such as Benzene from the air. Perfect for the bedroom!
Philodendron Imperial Green is what is known as a 'self-heading' Philodendron variety. This means it has leaves that are spaced so closely on the stem that they are not visible until they are much older or until of the lower leaves begin to naturally fall off. This makes it unique from most other philodendrons which are distinctly vine-like.
These varieties make awesome indoor plants due to their abundance of beautiful foliage and stiff stems which allow them to remain upright for a number of years, unlike vining types which require a support to remain upright.
These plants are shipped in a 1.5L nursery pot that is wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in during transport. They will fit any pot from our Classic Pot Range.
Wait until the top 2-3cm centimetres of soil in the pot has dried out before watering heavily.
Bright indirect light and a humid position is great for these guys. For example an East or North facing window in your kitchen. They'll handle a bit less light though, just give them a bit less water.
Currently about 40cm tall but may get up to 75cm tall when mature making them a striking feature in the home.
Greeting your Philodendron Imperial Green
When you recieve your plant open up the packaging, cut the string, carefully remove it from the insert (or cut the insert and pull it out the front) and of course, give it a really good water.
