SUN

Prefers medium to bright, indirect light. The Birkin will not do well under low light or any direct light, both of which can cause discoloration of the leaves. Placement in rooms with an east, south, or west-facing window is ideal.

WATER

Keep soil moist and water well once the top inch of soil has dried, allowing excess water to drain out. The Birkin will not do well under drought or periods of dry soil. 

AIR

Mimic a tropical environment with temperatures between 65º-85º and a high moisture content. Provide a regular boost of humidity by:

  • Misting the leaves 4-6x per week with non-tap water
  • Adding a humidifier nearby
  • Creating a pebble tray that lives underneath the pot
  • Placement in a bathroom or kitchen, if lighting is suitable

PET FRIENDLY

Keep out of reach from curious pets. These are toxic when ingested. 

AESTHETIC

Native to tropical rainforests of South America and a variation of the Philodendron Rojo Congo, the Philodendron Birkin flaunts green leaves with fascinating paint strokes of cream variegations. The thick stems keep each leaf perky and upright under proper care. The Birkin’s round leaves with pointed tips have been known to grow with shades of cream or red. Growing up to 3 feet in height, the slow growth is made up for by its beautiful, life-giving appearance.

HEALTH BENEFITS

Active exposure to and care for plants has many proven wellbeing benefits, such as: 


  • Lower stress levels
  • Improved mood
  • Superior mental clarity and focus

Philodendrons are also tremendous air purifiers, capable of removing significant amounts of indoor toxins. Keep their leaves free of dust for optimal photosynthesis and oxygen production.

SPIRITUAL INTERPRETATIONS

Philodendrons symbolize health and abundance, offering a deeper and intentional connection to its care. According to Feng Shui practices, thoughtful placement in the center of your home can channel positive energy for health. Additionally, any other area of your home where you’d like to be mindful of abundant energy.

OUR RECS

We recommend a ceramic planter with a drainage hole to provide ideal moisture balance for your Philodendron Prince of Orange. When repotting, keep your plant in a planter of the same size or no more than 2 inches larger.  


Ideal soil is a high-quality, well-draining mix with aerating and moisture-retaining amendments such as perlite, orchid bark, and coco coir.

 

Nature is unique - each plant may vary slightly from the plant shown here. Ceramic planters are sold separately.
