About philodendron ‘Prince of Orange’
How often do you see an orange houseplant? The answer is: almost never. This rare and unusual philodendron will be one of the stars of your collection.
New leaves emerge yellow, then turn a bright orange, before slowly transforming to lush green.
To make sure new leaves turn orange your plant will need lots of light. It likes a spot that’s really bright but out of direct sun, which can scorch the leaves. If it gets too little light the leaves will emerge green rather than orange.
There are many different varieties of philodendron. Most of them grow as vines but this one is a little different. Its leaves emerge from the centre, so it grows into a lovely round, full shape. It will eventually grow to about 60cm across, becoming a real eye-catcher.
