Philodendron Pink Princess Overview

Philodendron Pink Princess likes a position in bright, indirect light, in well-draining soil for optimal growth. It also benefits from the highest humidity you can provide! Originating from Columbia, this tropical plant is a fiendishly popular houseplant in many areas. However, finding one is another story! Philodendron erubescens 'Pink Princess' is an evergreen perennial cultivar in the Araceae family. It climbs through the use of aerial roots and will benefit from a moss pole to encourage its climbing habit. Foliage is glossy and coloured dark green, with splashes of attractive variegation in shades of pink, purple and cream. When grown with care, they can produce stunning whole pink leaves! The leaves are oval in shape and grow to around 20cm in length. Mature plants may produce red-purple flowering spathes – however, this is rare.
