Philodendron Black Cardinal

Philodendron Black Cardinal

This species of Philodendron  is a tough little lady hailing from the rainforests of South America. She distinguishes herself by her lush, beautiful leaves which emerge glowing with a bright orange hue before changing quickly to a deep black-green. Clean the large leaves with a damp cloth. These houseplants can thrive well near a window where the sunlight will shine directly on its foliage. Philodendrons are exotic tropical plants and therefore prefer humid environments. Misting them about once a week can help to encourage these humid environments, which may accelerate growth. Compared to most Philodendron houseplants out there, Philodendron Black Cardinal is not a climber, so you don’t have to train or trail it. Only water your Black Cardinal Philodendron when the top inch of its potting soil looks dry. To verify the dryness of the soil, stick your index finger up to the knuckle to check if it is still damp below the surface. In time, you’ll get an understanding of your plant’s watering requirements. If you want to add some variation to your plant collection, or if you’re on the lookout for a statement plant for a particular spot in your house, the Black Cardinal might be just what you’re looking for. It creates a calming atmosphere and increases general wellbeing and filters the air for a cleaner, healthier and relaxing environment. Even though this plant rarely blooms, its striking colored foliage makes the house plant stand out in any plant collection and indoor garden.

Ficus Audrey

Ficus Audrey

Blog content on Ficus Audrey, we have three specials:

Ficus Audrey is the national sacred tree of India and also known as the Banyan tree, found growing in the tropical forest. This species is a beautiful statement piece for any plant collection and is much more forgiving to environmental changes and under- or over- watering than its other ficus cousins. It is quite easygoing, it likes to dry out a little bit in-between watering and doesn’t like to sit in wet soil. Too much water and it can cause the leaves to drop, too little water and the leaves will lose their color and wilt. Watering once a week is normally absolutely fine. Likes a high nitrogen plant food.

While Ficus Audrey can grow rapidly outdoors, indoors they grow more slowly. As a general rule, you can repot Ficus Audrey every year. Younger plants tend to grow faster and need to be repotted more often than more mature ficus plants.  They are quite sensitive plants, and can go into shock when repotted. Best to wait until it’s really necessary.

The best time to repot your Ficus Audrey is in early spring during growth season so it can recover faster. 

To encourage branching, trim the main stem. The cut is best if angled, this way water can't stay and collect and potentially cause problems.

Ficus Audrey is one of the pure green fig varieties. It produces glossy, oval, thick green leaves with striking yellow veins. This immediately gives a tropical accent to any interior.

Its lush green leaves filter airborne toxins from the surrounding atmosphere. When looking closely at your Ficus Audrey’s leaves, you’ll notice that it has a fuzzy layer. This is normal, but the fuzz does tend to collect dust and as the dust gets thicker, it blocks sunlight. Whipping off the dust on leaves on a regular basis with a damp cloth is a good idea. However, don’t use leaf shine as it will damage the leaves.

Philodendron Fuzzy Petiole

Philodendron Fuzzy Petiole

Philodendron Fuzzy Petiole is a tropical vine that originates from Ecuador.
This unique philodendron delights not only with beautiful, large leaves but also with peculiar petioles, which is why collectors eagerly cultivate and seek after it. An unusual part of this species is the characteristic red petioles covered with thick bristles of stiff hairs, making this plant an extremely cool species to grow.
Philodendron Fuzzy Petiole is an undemanding plant that is easy to grow. In nature, it grows as a climbing and creeping plant. However, pot-growing is best conducted with vertical supports. It prefers a position that is slightly shaded with indirect sunlight. The plant should be fertilized with a liquid fertilizer from spring to autumn once a month. You get the best results by using rich, loose potting soil high in organic matter.
This species of philodendron makes an unusual addition to any collection.
