Birkin philodendron is a relatively new -- and especially trendy -- philodendron variety that boasts large, dark green leaves liberally streaked in creamy white. Each leaf is different so you can enjoy an ever-changing display throughout the year.
A slow-growing houseplant, it makes for an excellent addition to your favorite desk or tabletop when young. As it matures, it can reach 3 feet tall and wide or so as a houseplant. Believed to be a sport of Red Congo, Birkin is a self-heading philodendron (meaning it does not climb and is self supporting). You sometimes see Birkin produce leaves with red patches, or leaves that are entirely reddish-green.
Philodendron Plant Care Guide
The different species and varieties of the philodendron genus like similar conditions. So, we can look at how to grow them all right now, rather than one by one.
- Watering requirements: always allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil to dry up before watering your philodendron. Do not allow the soil to go completely dry at any time. Water with room temperature water.
- Humidity: philodendron likes high humidity, between 60 and 80%! Mist spray it regularly or use a saucer as a “water tank” to keep humidity high. High humidity will result in larger leaves!
- Potting soil: philodendron like loose, well drained soil which is rich in organic matter. A mix of sphagnum moss (or substitute) and perlite is ideal.
- Soil pH: the ideal pH for philodendron is 6.5 to 7.5.
- Feeding: use an organic fertilizer with NPK ratio of 3-1-2 and which is rich in macronutrients (organic matter). Fertilize every month in spring and summer, every 6 to 8 weeks in fall and winter.
- Propagation: propagation is easy by tip and leaf cuttings.
- Outdoor time: if you can, philodendron will like to spend the hot months outside, but make sure you place it in a shady (!!!) place with constant conditions and no wind!
