We’d love to introduce you to the stunningly cheerful Philodendron Birkin, a unique, tropical houseplant! Distinguished by its oval-shaped dark-green leaves, marked with creamy-yellow pinstripes you will never find two leaves that look the same!

This smaller variety of Philodendron is non-vining and loved for its upright growth habit with thick, lime-green stems. Add this rare and compact beauty to any room in your home- the perfect conversational pop of colour!

Philodendron Birkin Care & Maintenance:  

  • Light: Bright, indirect light (ideally an east or west-facing window) protected from direct rays of the sun.
  • Water: Water when the top 1-2″ of soil feel dry
  • Fertilizer: A balanced liquid fertilizer once a week during the growing season and once a month in the winter. Ensure the fertilizer contains micro-nutrients calcium and magnesium. 
  • Humidity: Place your plant in a room with high humidity (ie.bathroom or kitchen) or use a tray of pebbles. Fill the tray up with water and place your plant pot on top of the pebbles.

What to do if your Birkin has: 

  • Brown Leaves: When the leaves on a Philodendron Birkin are turning brown, it means it’s not getting enough humidity. Try creating a pebble tray, or misting the leaves every other day to create humidity for your plant.
  • Drying Leaves: When your leaves are yellowing around the edge and drying up, it is an indicator that you are over-watering your plant. Ensure that you check your soil before you decide to water to ensure that it’s dry.
