The Philodendron sanguineum is a distinctive and appealing houseplant, part of the large and diverse Philodendron genus. This plant is characterized by its striking foliage, which is what primarily attracts plant enthusiasts. The leaves of the Philodendron sanguineum are typically elongated and heart-shaped, with a deep, rich green color. What sets it apart is the underside of the leaves, which often exhibits a reddish or coppery hue, hence the name "sanguineum" which suggests a blood-red color.
Like many philodendrons, the sanguineum is a climbing plant, which means it can grow quite large under the right conditions and is often paired with a moss pole or some other form of support in indoor settings. It thrives in environments with high humidity and prefers bright, indirect sunlight. The soil should be well-draining but kept consistently moist.
