Philodendron Burgundy Princess
Philodendron Burgundy Princess is a Philodendron Pink Princess that didn't meet our standard of variegation or completely reverted. It is a climbing aroid with dark burgundy leaves but has no or very minimal pink variegations so far. And they often come with degradations that look like a 'Burn’. With that being said, although they haven't shown any signs of strong variegation, there is still a chance for them to push out variegated leaves later on.
They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.
They will thrive in bright light, but also can tolerate medium light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
They like the soil to be relatively dry before the next watering. That usually takes about 2 weeks in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. droopy, floppy, or soft leaves). Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.
They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.
The Philodendron Pink Princess can survive in low light conditions, but grows faster and produces more variegation in its leaves in medium or bright indirect light. If the leaves are pale in colour, the plant may be getting too much light. Do not put it in direct sunlight as the sun will burn the foliage.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
