Care Guide

More information can be found in the Red Congo.


One of the newer cultivars of the philodendron family, the Red Congo gets its name from the unique color of its leaves. Unlike other philodendrons, is not a climber and is instead considered a “self-heading” plant, growing new foliage from a single stalk at its base. As such, this plant easily maintains its elegant and erect form over time.

  • Approximately 3.5 feet in overall height
  • Botanical name: Philodendron “Rojo Congo”
  • Native to South America
  • Live, fully grown, healthy plant · Grown in the USA
  • Careful with pets · Learn More

Moisture Meter

Included with your plant to make watering easy.

We know finding the perfect watering routine is tough and unlike that armchair you bought last year, investing in a large living plant requires a little more attention. As a Léon & George customer, your plant comes with this simple and sleek tool that tells you when it’s time to water.

Designed and tested with research institutions and farmers, this moisture meter works without batteries and uses a simple color scale: blue = enough water, white = time to water.

Gorgeous Plants

The plants were in great condition because the packaging is rock solid. All three plants were very healthy. Only improvement I'd ask for is design a pot with a drainage hole. Most plants need watered all the way through and dont want to sit in water. Design a base to go with the pot and the stands.

Featured Questions

I have a last minute unforeseen event, I will be absent during the delivery, what should I do?

For White Glove delivery (XLarge and Large plants) the first thing to do is to notify us by email at bonjour@leonandgeorge.com or by phone at 0686879202 to tell us if a neighbor, friend, or caretaker can receive the plant for you, or if it can be safely dropped off at your doorstep. We will be able to transmit these new indications to the delivery person. If neither of these solutions is possible, we can also deliver to another address (office for example). Finally, as a last resort, we will schedule a new delivery. This service will be billed at the corresponding price to the delivery of your items, as indicated on the order form.

For Standard delivery (Medium & Small plants, accessories, care) La Poste Colissimo, Chronopost or UPS will send you an email to tell you the procedure to follow (redelivery or collection point). But don't delay in picking up your plant that needs light!
