Hi, I found this plant over the summer someone had put next to a dumpster. I'd like to know what it is so I can care for it properly. I think it was a bit greener when I first found it, now it is still green but it has some traces of red around the edges (could have always been there). I had it outside during summer/fall but it's been on a window sill behind a block window wall since. Also, it's grown out sideways and hangs out over the bucket/pot that it's in. I'm wondering if I could replant it so the curve faces upward, or if maybe I could train it to grow upward. I'm thinking it's just a ground dwelling plant though. TIA! - Don

I cant see clear wether it is a climbing philodendron erubescent, or it is a self heading type of Philodendron, (which has many cultivar with burgundy color), what ever it is I think you are lucky...
I wish you could show more picture showing stem to see the internode, to see wether it is a climbing type or not.

Thanks for the additional images, I think it is some type of hybrid phylodendron, this type I use to call semi-climbing, it does climb but not as fast as P erubescent or other types, for the cultivar, I have no idea, since most my philo are NOID, and I am just satisfied by their look,
other will chime in soon I hope for onother opinion, also when the plant grows the precise "cultivar ID" could be more possible.
