Philodendron 'Weeks red hybrid' is a very unique and rare philodendron in most tropical garden lovers and aroid addicts "must have" wish list. Look no further, we are growing these beauties in our nursery and they are absolutely freaking gorgeous and full in a 7-gallon pot. Our philodendron 'Weeks red hybrid's are approx. 3-4 feet high x 4 ft wide in a 7-gallon. Ron Weeks, an incredible grower, a Miami native and one of the nicest people you'd ever meet, is whom this philodendron is named after since he is the orginator of the hybrid. The new leaves are born a strawberry color with heavy reddish pink mottling in the leaves. As the hastate shape leaves age they also grow in size and change color from the starwberry pinkish/red to a yellow/lemon-lime color with green mottling. Then they become a more deep solid emerald green with a light red mottling in the stems. The 'weeks red hybrid' philodendron grows to be about 5-6 ft high maybe larger if happy and can get fairly wide as it continues to grow along a main central lead producing roots along the way. Philodendrons are great climbers and can attach themselves to grow on a wall and tree/palm trunk for a spectacular display.
