Dazzling striped varieagation on this rare Philodendron.
Beautiful yellow/white striped variegation on this rare Philodendron. Philodendron Birkin makes a striking houseplant. In a brightly lit and not too dry spot it will reward you with gorgeous patterned leaves.
The dark green leaves with bold venation will have every houseguest green with envy when they see it.
Philodendron Birkin likes bright indirect light and prefers very well-draining potting mix that allows the roots to breathe. Water sparingly and use Tropical Foliage fertilizer about every six weeks. We water every other day and are not concerned if we have to skip the occasional watering for an extra day.
In our greenhouse we use sphagnum moss and a soil mixture with bark and perlite which allows for balance of moisture retention while allowing the roots to breathe. Constantly wet roots are not recommended as rot can set in.
Philodendron Birkin will not tolerate cold temperatures. Warm conditions promote better more consistent growth.
