Similar to its Rojo Congo and Mccolley's Finale cousins, the Black Cardinal is a self-heading philodendron that brings a bright POP of color with new growth! New leaves grow in bright reddish-orange and will fade to a dark green with purple hues over time.Philodendrons
are perhaps the most commonly found genus of plants in the modern houseplant hobby, with dozens of species and cultivars for both beginners and experienced collectors. They are beloved for their (typically) easy growth and forgiving nature, thriving in strong indirect light
with moderate watering,
and often tolerating both low indirect light and some direct sun. Most are either vines or “self-heading” varieties, which have a more upright stem with a crown of leaves. The vines propagate very easily and self-heading varieties often generate pups around their base.
