Blooming is rare for this type of Philodendron and their insignificance plays second fiddle to the plant’s lush foliage.
The young leaves of the Bloody Mary Philodendron start out burgundy but take on a reddish tone as they mature.
The large leaves reach a length of 22 inches (56 cm) long and 9 inches (23 cm) wide when mature.
The plant does produce blooms, but only after 12 to 15 years when it reaches maturity.
Prized for the red hairs that grow on its petioles, the Hairy Philodendron is a vining plant that grows 5 to 6 feet (1.5 to 1.8 meters) indoors.
The foliage goes through several stages of color change, making a stunning visual.
The foliage texture is thick, leathery, and hide-like. The leaves wrinkle where they meet the stem, resembling pig ears.
