It's easy to see why this plant is a favorite amongst plant collectors and new plant parents alike. The beautiful variegated leaves have the appearance of a hand-painted art piece! As the plant matures the delicate cream pinstripes become more pronounced with each leaf.
To maintain the white-yellow variegation consistent bright lighting is required. This Philodendron is self-heading thus it does not require staking or a climbing structure.

- Prefers bright, indirect light or filtered bright light.

- Stem cuttings can be placed in moist soil or water until it forms roots that are about 2-3” long then transplant to moist soil. Take a cutting with a node (where the petiole meets the main stem).

Is the Philodendron ‘Birkin’ the right plant for me?
Philodendron plants are fairly easy to care for. They prefer the top 2” of the soil to dry in between watering as they are quite susceptible to stem rot. Place your plant in a location with bright, indirect light or filtered bright light and watch it grow!
The large leaves are absolutely stunning but need regular dusting to ensure they can photosynthesize at their optimal levels.
Pet Friendly: Unfortunately, Philodendrons are not pet-friendly.
