Philodendron White Princess
Philodendron White Princess is a relatively rare, climbing aroid with rounded, slightly narrow green leaves that can have lots of marbling and the occasional patch of vibrant white. This variegation will occur on the leaves but the stems are green with pink edge, which helps distinguish it from other similar aroids, such as the Philodendron White Wizard only has green stem or White Knight has brownish-purple stem. All of its unique features make it a truly fascinating houseplant.
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 will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist daily or get a humidifier.
As the plant grows, it may need to be secured to a bamboo stake or moss pole to support its main vine and to have something for its aerial roots to latch onto. Keep it in a warm room but make sure there is a healthy amount of airflow and no drafts blowing on the plant. To promote the best colouring, make sure to keep your plant in lots of bright, indirect light.
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.
