All Hail the Royalty of Philodendrons

Philodendron ‘Imperial Red’ is a beautiful and easy-to-care-for houseplant that can thrive in a variety of indoor environments. It requires bright, indirect light, regular watering, and well-draining soil. Regular fertilization and humidity are also important for maintaining healthy growth. Pruning and propagation can help maintain the shape and size of the plant and promote healthy growth. With proper care, this stunning plant can thrive for many years, providing a touch of tropical beauty to your indoor space.

Caring for your Imperial Red Philodendron

This plant is easy to care for and can thrive in a variety of indoor environments. Here are some tips on caring for your Philodendron ‘Imperial Red’.


Philodendron ‘Imperial Red’ prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much direct sunlight can cause the leaves to burn. If the plant is not receiving enough light, the leaves may turn yellow and fall off.


This plant prefers consistently moist soil, but it is important to avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot. Water the plant deeply once a week, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. During the winter months, the plant may require less frequent watering.

Soil and Potting

Philodendron ‘Imperial Red’ does well in a variety of soil types, including standard potting soil and a mix of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite. It is important to choose a pot with drainage holes to prevent water from accumulating in the soil. The plant can become root-bound, so it may need to be repotted every two years.


This plant prefers a humid environment, but it can tolerate lower humidity levels. If the air in your home is dry, you can increase humidity around the plant by placing it on a tray of pebbles filled with water or using a humidifier.


Philodendron ‘Imperial Red’ benefits from regular fertilization during the growing season. Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every two weeks. Do not fertilize the plant during the dormant season (fall and winter).


Pruning can help maintain the shape and size of the plant and promote healthy growth. Remove any dead or damaged leaves or stems, as well as any suckers that grow from the base of the plant. To promote bushier growth, pinch back the tips of the stems.


Philodendron ‘Imperial Red’ can be propagated by stem cuttings taken in the spring or summer. Cut a stem tip with at least two leaves and place it in a jar of water or moist potting soil. Keep the cutting in a bright, warm spot and change the water or moisten the soil as needed until roots form.

Pests and Diseases

Philodendron ‘Imperial Red’ is generally a hardy plant that is resistant to pests and diseases. However, it can be susceptible to spider mites and scale insects, particularly if the plant is stressed or grown in hot, dry conditions. If you notice any signs of pest infestation, such as webbing or sticky residue, treat the plant with an insecticidal soap or horticultural oil.
