How to Care for your Philodendron Birkin
Light: As with many houseplants, Philodendron Birkin thrive best in bright spots with indirect light. Too much direct sunlight can damage the leaves, and low light areas can make it leggy and stunt growth.
Water: Watering is probably the most important part of your Philodendron Birkin care routine. They like to have moist soil but will struggle if they are consistently overwatered. We recommend checking the soil moisture before watering to make sure it has dried sufficiently.
Temperature: As they are native to the tropics, Philodendron Birkin will struggle in colder temperatures. Make sure it is not near any drafty windows or doors as the colder air from outside will over time harm your plant.
Humidity: Philodendron Birkin require medium to high humidity levels to properly thrive.
Fertilizer:We recommend you fertilize your Philodendron Birkin once a fortnight in spring and summer. Use a soluble houseplant feed at half the recommended strength. Make sure it includes calcium and magnesium as this will encourage healthy growth.
Propagation: You can easily propagate a Philodendron Birkin plant by taking a stem cutting. We recommend propagating in spring as the growth period is beginning. Place the cutting in water for a few weeks, replacing the water every other day. Once roots begin to develop you can pot your cutting in fresh soil and continue with your normal Philodendron Birkin care routine.
Toxicity: Unfortunately, digestion of any part of your Philodendron Birkin plant can cause minor irritation in pets and children so try to keep them out of reach.
