About the plant: Philodendrons, or simply philodendrons, are plants from the Araceae family. It comes from the rainforests of Central and South America. Unlike the others already mentioned, this robust perennial herb has an interesting way of life. In tropical America, it is commonly found in treetops, on rocks or in swamps. We can ensure a similar life for them in domestic conditions, if we give them some support in the flowerpot, which they could also climb on, e.g. a coconut stick, otherwise we let them flow freely, for example from a shelf. An interesting feature of the life of philodendrons is the temperature reached during pollination - scientists measured an incredible 43 °C.
Philodendron Ring of Fire is a rare species of variegated philodendron, which has elongated toothed leaves with variegated variegation, mostly white, yellowish and green.

Every plant is different, just like us humans. Please allow for a possible deviation in appearance compared to the product photo.
Because even in its country of origin it lives attached to trees in the forest, it does not need too much light even at home. Brighter diffused light will do, but certainly not direct sunlight, as it could burn the leaves.
It prefers higher air humidity, it will do well near an air humidifier, we can also mist it. Or place it on a saucer with pebbles, which you fill with water - but be careful that the water does not touch its roots.
It is propagated by top or stem cuttings, which are best cut in spring. If the plant is mature enough, even a cut will benefit it and make it thicker. Let the cuttings root in water or in a mixture of peat and sand at approx. 25 °C.
