Philodendron Birkin

If you follow us on instagram you will have seen that I bought one of these guys from a plant shop for myself. I loved it so much I’ve decided to stock them 🙂 They’re such an interesting plant. Birkin, named after the famous Hermes bag – doesn’t actually occur in the wild, they are the result of a spontaneous mutation of a philodendron red congo. This makes it super interesting because they’ve been known to spit out a whole variety of leaves, some completely white, entire phil.rojo leaves and lots of variations in-between. As this is a philodendron, it’s really easy to look after too. I love a plant with a good story and this little anecdote doesn’t disappoint.

Availability: 5 in stock

Light :  Bright indirect light and never hot afternoon sun. 

Water:  Allow the top of the soil to dry out between waterings. Always check your soil before you water.

Humidity: Most tropical house plants will do well with a bit of misting. Not only does it help with keeping leaves dust free (which is vital for photosynthesis) but also helps them to feel at ‘home’. You could also pop this plant in your bathroom, or sit it with some other plants. 

Temperature: Keep this guy above 16 degrees.  

Food:  During the growing season (spring/summer) you can fertilise every 2 weeks. 

Toxicity: toxic if ingested – best kept out of reach of nibblers

Dimensions 14 × 25 cm

If your Philodendron suffers from shock, ie: repotting into a pot that’s too big or being sat by a draft or a radiator it could drop leaves.

Any crispiness always shows a lack of moisture.
