It grows in compact rosettes and sprouts large, glossy burgundy leaves with a green tinge that turns fully green when it matures. Compared to similar red species, Rojo Congo has larger leaves and longer, thicker petioles. The plant is a self-supporting self-header that doesn’t need stakes or moss poles to grow.
