New leaves emerge bright orange/red and fade to a muted maroon or yellow and then green as they mature. Philodendron 'Prince of Orange' is great for adding a pop of colour to any home or garden. They will thrive in a bright but indirect sunlight with plenty of airflow and a water when their soil is 80% dry.
