Philodendron erubescens 'Dark Lord' is a striking appearance among plant enthusiasts, one of the rarest hybrids with dark-colored leaves in the Philodendron genus. Its large leaves can range in color from black to burgundy, copper, and green.

Due to its excellent growth rate, it will need a support pole, wrapped in coconut fiber or moss.

It is a very easy plant to maintain; the ideal growing conditions involve air humidity of 40% +.

Philodendron 'Black Majesty' loves full indirect sunlight (east-facing windows are the best options) and a moist substrate when the top two cm have dried out.

Attention! To check the moisture level of the substrate, inserting a finger into the pot at a depth of 2 cm is the best way to measure soil moisture. So, if you feel the substrate is wet, keep the sprayer away from it for one to two days, and if you feel it is dry, water it.

Attention 2! When we talk about watering, we must consider the pot in which the plant is planted, as well as the amount of substrate and its degree of aeration. That means we don't pour a liter of water into a pot with a diameter and height of 12 cm, because we drown the plant's roots. It is best to discard excess water from the collector pot half an hour after watering.

The plant should be mounted on a support pole wrapped in coconut fiber or moss, in which case the aerial roots will cling to this support, resulting in a plant with a more vigorous stem and increasingly larger leaves.

Success in caring for it! And don't forget to give us updates about your plant, using the hashtag #greenmirrors and tagging @green.mirrors in your Instagram posts! We promise to share them in stories.
