About Philodendron Prince of Orange
One of the most colorful Philodendrons, the Prince of Orange has brightly colored leaves the emerge a deep pink/red, and mature to orange, and then green 🧡 Philodendrons grow aerial roots that grip the bark of trees, allowing them to grow over 20 feet tall! Their heart-shaped leaves change shape as they climb and can grow larger than a dinner plate. Fossils show Philodendrons growing as far back as 30 million years ago when South America was still connected to Antarctica! ❄️

What other plant parents say
I love this plant. It gives you beautiful colors throughout the year. BUT the second the sun starts to go away or it gets cold the plant stops growing, browns, and the leaves fall. It sucks trying to keep it alive during the winter but it’s exciting to see new leaves grow during the spring and summer.
I bought this plant probably about 2 months ago and this is EXACTLY how it looked when I bought it. It hasn’t changed at all since I purchased it. It hasn’t dropped any leaves, gotten any more brown spots, or even had any new growth. I guess it’s just content with what I’ve given it so a boost will bring about new growth. I’m going to try fertilizing it soon and maybe giving it a little more light.
I thought I wanted a Pink Prince$$ because it looks so pretty, but I￼ think the Prince of Orange is TOTALLY underrated. I love it! It grows so quickly and it's put up with all the rough-housing that goes on at my place (it has been knocked over twice). It's survival of the fittest at this house. When the leaves unfurl, it's so colorful! When the older leaves settle in, it really is stunning. The stems are a beautiful red. There's nothing I don't like about this plant!
