Prince of Orange is a relatively new plant hybrid, having been first introduced in 2016. It is a cross between several Philodendron varieties. This particular hybrid has been selectively bred to cultivate distinctive color-changing foliage.
As its name suggests, this plant's leaves start with a vibrant shade of orange and then mature into a lush and vibrant green, creating a captivating color transition. The leaves of the Philodendron Prince of Orange are heart-shaped with a slightly ruffled texture. This plant is a relatively compact grower, making it a great choice for homes with limited space. Its manageable size allows you to incorporate a touch of tropical beauty even in smaller rooms.
Philodendron Prince of Orange is a relatively fast-growing plant and can reach heights of up to 2 feet. It is a popular houseplant because it is easy to care for, relatively pest- and disease-resistant, and can tolerate a variety of indoor conditions, making it a wonderful choice for both beginners and seasoned plant enthusiasts.
Philodendron Prince of Orange serves as an excellent air-purifying houseplant, renowned for its capacity to efficiently eliminate toxins and contaminants from the air, thus promoting a healthier and more breathable indoor atmosphere.
This plant is versatile when it comes to lighting, but it is recommended to provide your Philodendron Prince of Orange with bright, indirect sunlight. While it can tolerate lower light conditions, prolonged periods in low lighting can make this plant lose its vibrant colors. Avoid direct sun, as it can scorch the leaves.
Keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy. Water when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch. Be cautious not to overwater, as this plant is sensitive to sitting in waterlogged soil.
Use a well-draining potting mix suitable for aroids or tropical plants. A mix that includes peat or coir, perlite, and pine bark is ideal.
This plant can adapt to most typical indoor environments with temperatures ranging from 65°F to 80°F. Avoid exposing it to temperatures below 50°F or sudden temperature fluctuations. It needs moderate humidity levels (about 40-50% or higher). If you live in a dry environment, consider using a humidifier, misting the plant occasionally, or using a humidity tray to maintain adequate moisture.
Feed your plant with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer) about once a month. Reduce or cease fertilization during the dormant winter months.
Keep in mind that the Philodendron Prince of Orange, like many Philodendron species, contains insoluble calcium oxalate crystals, which can cause irritation if ingested or if they come into contact with the skin. Be cautious and keep it out of reach of pets and small children.

Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered
light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do
NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour
off any excess water after a few minutes.
The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot
area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended
periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
