Philodendron Birkin care
- This relatively compact aroid was created by isolating a genetic mutation of a Philodendron ‘Rojo Congo’ and is native to Central and South America.
- They will thrive in bright, indirect light and will want more light to encourage the emerging white leaves.
- Happiest in a well-draining aroid mix with lots of organic matter. We use coco coir instead of peat with spongerock, horticultural charcoal and some hydroton pebbles. We use Nutricote to fertilize in the warmer months, every 3 months or so, and cut back when it gets cooler.
- Let the top few inches of your aroid dry out before you water again, careful not to overwater.
- Does best in temperatures ranging from 65-75°F with humidity levels above 60% but will survive at lower humidity just not the fastest growth.
