The Philodendron Pink Princess is a beautiful plant with stunning pink variegation on its leaves. It is a relatively easy plant to care for, but it does require a few specific conditions to thrive. Here is a care guide to help you keep your Philodendron Pink Princess healthy and happy:
Philodendron Pink Princess needs bright, indirect light to thrive. Direct sunlight can damage its leaves, so it's best to place the plant near a window with filtered light or in a spot where it receives bright but indirect light.
Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so make sure the soil has proper drainage and don't let the plant sit in water for too long.
Philodendron Pink Princess prefers high humidity levels but will adapt to household humidity just fine. You can increase the humidity by placing a humidifier nearby or by misting the leaves with water regularly.
Philodendron Pink Princess likes temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Avoid exposing the plant to temperatures below 55°F (12°C) or above 90°F (32°C).
Use a soil formulated for aroids - a well-draining soil that's rich in organic matter. To make your own mix together equal parts of peat moss, perlite, and orchid bark.
Feed the plant with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce the frequency to once a month during fall and winter.
Trim any yellow or brown leaves to keep the plant looking healthy. You can also prune the plant to encourage bushier growth.
Philodendron Pink Princess can be propagated by stem cuttings. Simply take a stem cutting with a few leaves and nodes, dip it in rooting hormone, place it in damp sphagnum moss inside of a prop box. Once it grows roots plant it can be transplanted into an aroid potting mix.
