The Philodendron Birkin is part of the immense Araceae family native to Central America. This variety was recently created by growers. Its variegated foliage makes it THE plant you wish to add to your collection.
Its heart-shaped leaves are green when they are young and develop lovely pale stripes as they mature. The more ambient light it receives the more the contrasts will be clear-cut. A striking ornamental choice for any luminous space at home or the office!
The Philodendron Birkin appreciates a warm and humid environment where good indirect light prevails. This easy-care philodendron appreciates slightly humid soil, but reacts unfavorably to overwatering which leads to soggy soil. It will require a drink when the first third of the pot is dry.
When you take possession of your plant, make sure you assess its watering needs. Before you give it a drink the first time, check the soil’s moisture level to verify whether or not it is moist near the surface. It is best to aerate the soil before the initial watering since it is often compacted to avoid shifting during transit. This also allows it to breathe and release moisture.
Rotate your plant periodically in order to encourage an even growth. Cleaning the leaves regularly will stimulate proper photosynthesis. As you wipe the foliage, inspect the leaves on either side to make sure there are no pests.
