    Features

    Prismacolor ‘Orange you Gorgeous’ is a philodendron that will have you saying “Orange you Gorgeous!” This tropical houseplant is a living kaleidoscope of citrus-inspired colors, with elongated, spade-shaped leaves emerging a mottled bright orange color, then slowly fading to a marbled tapestry of gold & green. Leaf petioles, midribs, and margins have a warm, orangey glow, reminiscent of a sunrise over a tropical grove. Given the light it craves & structure, ‘Orange you Gorgeous’ will reach towards the sun, unfurling lush, large leaves as refreshing as a sip of fresh-squeezed orange juice on a summer day.

    Maintenance Notes: 
    • For optimal performance, keep your Philodendron at 60-85°F (15-29°C). 
    • Philodendrons perform best in bright, indirect light or filtered sunlight. Too much direct sunlight, especially in the middle of the day, can scorch the leaves. A little morning or evening sun, however, may help your Philodendron to flourish, especially in the short, dim days of winter. Philodendrons will tolerate lower light conditions, but they will not show their coloration/variegation as intensely in low light, or grow as quickly.  
    • Philodendrons appreciate higher humidity, but are generally adaptable to ambient household humidity. In general, if your philodendron has thicker, waxier leaves, it will be able to tolerate less humidity; if your philodendron has thin, fine leaves, it will perform better if given a higher humidity situation. You can help maintain humidity above 50% by using a humidifier or keeping your Philodendron on a pebble tray. 
    • Philodendrons prefer to be watered when the top 1-2 inches of soil feels dry. Ensure good drainage and do not allow your Philodendron to sit in water for extended periods of time, after it has received a good soaking. 
    • Feed your Philodendron once per month at half strength when it is actively growing. Reduce frequency of fertilization in the winter months. If no new leaves are growing, it does not need to be fertilized.
    • Protect furniture when watering & fertilizing.
    • When repotting your Philodendron, use an all-purpose potting mix, with additional orchid bark and perlite added, to ensure your Philodendron has good drainage and plenty of nutrients.
    • This is a CLIMBING PHILODENDRON. It is capable of producing aerial roots that can cling to structures.  As such, this Philodendron will benefit from having a moss pole, trellis, stakes, or other structures to climb.

    • I picked this plant up at a Calloway's nursrey in the Dallas, Tx area. The new leaves are a beautiful mottled orange that fades to yellow. From what I have seen so far this hybrid is staying very compact with limited little space between nodes.
