Philodendron Birkin 'White Wave'

English name:

Philodendron Birkin 'White Wave'

Latin name:

About me:

I am a new variety of Philodendron with beautiful white markings on my leaves. My name Birkin relates to the famous designer bag by Hermes.

Useful to know:

Origin

I came about through a spontaneous mutation of the Philodendron Rojo Congo so I don't exist in the wild!

Height/Growth

I can grow up to 80cm.

Light

I like bright indirect light and no direct sunlight.

Water

Allow top layer of soil to dry between waterings and water me less in winter.

Temperature

Room temperatures of 16-24°C are perfect.

Feeding

Feed me fortnightly from spring to autumn.

Grooming

Give my leaves a regular dusting.

Care

I like higher levels of humidity so please mist me or place me on a tray of pebbles. If the edges of my leaves are yellowing, you're probably overwatering me.

Toxicity

I am toxic so please don't eat me.

Fact

I have been known to produce purely white or green leaves and there's even evidence that I can randomly grow a Rojo Congo leaf!
