The gorgeous and highly sought after Pink Princess Philodendron aka Philodendron Erubescens is at the top of many plant collector’s wish lists, and for good reason. Native to Columbia, the Pink Princess Philodendron is a tropical aroid in the Araceae family. Despite its high price tag, this colorful plant is actually pretty easy to care for. Characterized by deep green, heart-shaped leaves with bubblegum pink variegation, the pink princess is truly unique in the plant world. While it can be easily confused with the Philodendron Pink Congo, the variegation of the Pink Princess is stable as it occurs due to natural processes, whereas the Pink Congo variegation is a result of chemicals that are injected into the leaves.
Thrives in medium to bright indirect light. Can tolerate low light conditions. Not suited for direct sun.
Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.
