Philodendron 'Prince of Orange' Description

The 'Prince of Orange' features large, shiny leaves that grow from a central point, creating a compact, bushy appearance. New leaves unfurl in vibrant orange hues, making this plant a dynamic addition to any indoor space. Over time, the leaves mature to deeper greens, giving this plant a multi-colored effect that is both eye-catching and delightful.

Care Plan for Philodendron 'Prince of Orange'

Light: Philodendron 'Prince of Orange' thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate medium light levels, but its colors are most vibrant when the plant is placed in an area with plenty of light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

Watering: Water this Philodendron when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure consistent moisture without overwatering, as waterlogged soil can lead to root rot. Good drainage is essential to keep the plant healthy.

Humidity: This plant prefers higher humidity levels but can adapt to average indoor humidity. If the air is too dry, consider using a humidifier or occasionally misting the plant to increase humidity, especially during dry winter months.

Temperature: Maintain temperatures between 65-78°F (18-25°C). Avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature changes, which can stress the plant.

Child and Pet Safety: Like many Philodendrons, the 'Prince of Orange' is toxic if ingested due to the presence of calcium oxalate crystals. These can cause irritation and swelling of the mouth and gastrointestinal tract in pets and humans. It's important to keep this plant out of reach of children and pets.

General Tips: Fertilize every month during the growing season with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer to encourage growth and vibrant leaf production. Regularly remove any yellowing or dead leaves to keep the plant looking tidy and to promote better air circulation around the foliage. Cleaning the leaves with a damp cloth not only keeps the plant looking fresh but also helps it photosynthesize more efficiently.
