There are several theories about Philodendron Ring of Fire. One of them suggests it is a hybrid Philodendron, formerly known as Henderson's Pride. Another theory suggests that Philodendron Ring of Fire is actually a hybrid between two Philodendron species: wendlandii and tortum, both perennial plants native to South America. 

Philodendron Ring of Fire has a rather slow growth rate and features foliage characterized by a unique combination of colors. Thus, the leaves are variegated and can have shades of pink, orange, or red. 

Attention! To check the substrate's humidity level, inserting your finger into the pot to a depth of 2 cm is the best method for measuring soil moisture. 

So, if you feel the substrate is wet, keep the sprayer away from it for one to two days, and if it feels dry, water it. 

Attention 2! When watering, consider the pot in which the plant is planted, as well as the amount of substrate and its aeration level. That is, do not pour a liter of water into a pot with a diameter and height of 12 cm, as you may drown the plant's roots. It is best to discard excess water from the collector tray half an hour after watering.
