Philodendron Pink Princess
The gorgeous and highly sought after pink princess philodendron (philodendron erubescens ‘pink princess’) is at the top of many plant collector’s wish lists, and for good reason. Characterized by deep green, heart-shaped leaves with bubblegum pink variegation, the pink princess is truly unique in the plant world. While it can be easily confused with the Philodendron pink congo, the variegation of the pink princess is stable as it occurs due to natural processes, whereas the pink congo variegation is a result of chemicals that are injected into the leaves, usually reverting back to green a couple months after being purchased.
Light: Prefers bright, indirect light. It will, however, survive in lower light and the leaves will turn a darker green. Direct sun or too much light will burn or fade the leaves.
Water: Water when 95% of soil is dry.
*We recommend Bottom-watering, sometimes called reverse watering, is when you place a plant in a bowl of water, allowing the soil and roots to soak water from the bottom up. (Naturally, your pot needs to have drainage holes for this to work.)
Humidity: Normal household humidity is fine , but higher humidity encourages larger leaves. Your plant will benefit from regular misting.
Temperature: Your plant will grow well in temperatures between 65-80 degrees during the day and above 55 degrees at night. Keep it away from drafts, especially during the winter months.
Food: Feed once a month during spring and summer with a liquid fertilizer for indoor plants. Feed every other month during the fall and winter.
Toxicity: Philodendron leaves are toxic to pets and humans.
