Philodendron ‘Black Cardinal’


Philodendron erubescens

Black Cardinal has large deep burgundy, almost black leaves and deep red stems, giving this tropical plant a mysterious and decorative appearance. Strong compact growth, it needs no support and is ideal for pots and containers. Can be grown inside in a brightly lit position.


Product Description

Black Cardinal is best grown in well-drained, moist soil in part shade. Too much light or too little moisture can cause the leaves to become pale and brown. Philodendrons also do not like overly wet or cold soils. Avoid alkaline soil.

Black Cardinal philodendron is a fantastic understory plant in shady gardens in warm, frost-free regions. It is also an excellent houseplant in bright, warm indoor spaces.
