Philodendron gloriosum, Croton Nervia and Red Maranta

Philodendron gloriosum, Croton Nervia and Red Maranta  (Philodendron gloriosum)

These are a few of the plants that have just been planted in my front yard. They should be well established by December. Photo taken April 18, 2024.

I have an indoor gloriosum and love its leaves. Still trying to work out how best to please it inside!

Indoors, it needs lots of light and humidity. Outdoors it’ll grow pretty large. I have a feeling by December it may take over this area.

Thank you. I've moved it into the kitchen to try and provide more moisture. I also mist it regularly. Good luck with yours, Delonix.

The kitchen is probably very good for humidity. Good luck!

I’ve seen P. gloriosum with leaves to more than 2 ft (61 cm) long. I’m hoping it doesn’t outgrow this area too quickly! I once had a Philodendron ‘Green Congo’ which grew from a very small plant into a gigantic monster within one year. My P. ‘Congo Rojo’ pretty much did the same thing.

A great combination, Andy! Hope they do well for you. All three are houseplants here in the UK!

They should grow very well, as long as bugs don’t attack them.

Let's hope not! 🤞

So far, so good. 😎
