A hugely popular philodendron, with its bold dark green-burgundy leaves with large splashes and speckles of bright pink. It is a stand out plant, especially as it matures and the leaves grow larger. New leaves emerge a dark olive-green, maturing to a dark burgundy-green with pink tones. The pink princess is a natural climber, and needs a trellis, stake or moss pole to climb up, which also encourages large, healthy new leaves.
Pink markings vary from plant-to-plant and are unique, so although your plant won't be the exact plant shown, we have hand picked the stock and they all have lovely variegation. One Pink Princess per customer. These come in a 15cm nursery pot on a coir pole.
Habitat: Can grow to a mature size of 1.2m tall. Ideal for pots indoors.
Light: Bright to medium bright indirect light. Do not allow the direct sun to contact leaf. This is to keep high variegation levels while avoiding sun burn.
Water: Water about once a week, allowing the top layer of soil to dry out between waterings.
Humidity: High, mist plant 2 times a week to minimise brown leaf tips.
Soil: Re-pot into Oderings houseplant potting mix
Fertiliser: Use a Liquid fertiliser only once or twice a year, preferably in the spring or early summer.
Flower Color: Non-flowering
Pests: Aphids are most common and can be found on new growth
Poisonous for pets: Toxic to pets and humans if ingested.
Other tips: Like many other philodendron, the pink princess likes a support to grow on. Use a stake to support your plant to get maximum leaf growth and size.
This plant has a smaller root system than most, therefore we do not recommend you pot into a bigger sized pot this season. If you have a fully pink leaf, it is best to remove it, as it will not survive.
