Light: Philodendron 'Congo' does best in medium to bright indirect light. The green 'Congo' variety may handle lower light conditions better than cultivars such as "Rojo Congo'.
Water: Water your Philodendron 'Congo' when about half to nearly all of the soil has gone dry. Philodendron 'Congo' are pretty easy going plants and do not require any added humidity.
Did you know? You may notice your plant producing what looks like small beads of water from the underside of the leaf or along the stem. These droplets along your plant are actually nectar that the plant secretes from pores called extrafloral nectaries. In the wild this nectar is used to attract ants who in turn leave organic material among the roots of the plant that fertilize it! Don't worry though- these extrafloral nectaries wont attract any ants into your home!
