Philodendron Pink Princess 4 inch
The gorgeous and highly sought after pink princess philodendron (Philodendron erubescens ‘pink princess’) is at the top of many plant collector’s wish lists, and for good reason. Characterized by deep green, heart-shaped leaves with bubblegum pink variegation, the pink princess is truly unique in the plant world.
Native to Columbia, the pink princess philodendron is a tropical aroid in the Araceae family. Despite the usually high price tag, this colorful plant is actually pretty easy to care for.
Providing your pink princess philodendron with enough light is the most important factor influencing the amount of variegation it will have. Choose a location that receives several hours of bright, indirect light. When grown indoors, the pink princess philodendron can also tolerate a couple hours of direct light, which may help to increase its variegation. If you do not have a location in your home that receives enough light, buying a grow light for this plant is recommended.
Allow the top half of the soil to dry out between waterings and then water well. Ensure that your pink princess is never sitting in waterlogged soil as they are susceptible to root rot. It is far easier to overwater your pink princess philodendron than to under water it, so if you are unsure about whether it needs water, air on the side of caution and wait another day.
