The glossy, bright green and red oval shaped leaves on this philodendron are spaced very close together on a single stem. This stiff, barely visible stem keeps Imperial Red upright and elegant looking as it matures. It's most commonly used as a tabletop plant and as it grows larger it becomes a low, full-floor plant. Imperial Red prefers bright natural light. It will tolerate higher light but be sure to keep it out of any direct hot sun to avoid sunburn. Let this plant go almost 3/4 of the way dry before watering again.
