It can't just be us that gets excited about plants that change colour? This beauty has bright red leaves in its youth which change to burgundy and purple, before finally a dark green in its mature years. It is also a great air-purifier and tolerates shade too, making it a dream all-rounder.
Thought you had a big family? There are around 500 different species of Philodendron.
With origins in southern and central America, the Philodendron Imperial Red likes a humid environment, so treat it to a mist every now and then. Feed with weak liquid fertiliser a couple times a week during growing season, but don't overdo it - a salt build up can burn the roots of the plant, resulting in brown spots appearing on the leaves.
