Philodendron 'Prince of Orange' is a hybrid of the self heading (rather than vining type) Philodendron. It can attain heights to around 4 feet, with new leaves unfurling in bright shades of orange that change to green as they mature. This Philodendron requires bright, indirect light and a well draining potting medium.
