This plant grows vigorously in an upright but spreading or open manner. New leaves are brownish maroon to almost red in colour while the large mature ones are dark green in color with a touch of red. The plant’s leaf petioles remain reddish purple to bright right with long-lasting petiole sheaths.
When selecting a space for your Congo, moderate natural lighting conditions are ideal, and diffused natural light and northern exposure are best. Artificial light can also work well as long as there is significant exposure time to the light.
When watering your Congo, keep moderation in mind. Its moisture content should remain regular and consistent. If its environment has moderate heat, light, and airflow as recommended, you should only need to water about every week or two.
I have styled this plant with a White Out Pot 30x30 cm
