Philodendron 'White Princess' Description

The Philodendron 'White Princess' features heart-shaped leaves that are a deep, lush green with splashes or streaks of white. The variegation is random and can vary significantly from leaf to leaf, making each one unique. This plant tends to climb or trail, depending on how it is supported, making it versatile for different types of displays, from hanging baskets to climbing walls with the support of a moss pole.

Care Plan for Philodendron 'White Princess'

Light: This plant thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate medium light levels, but its variegation will be more pronounced if it receives sufficient light. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.

Watering: Water the 'White Princess' when the top inch of soil feels dry. Ensure that you provide thorough watering, but let the soil dry out somewhat between waterings to avoid overwatering, which can lead to root rot. Use well-draining soil to help prevent water accumulation.

Humidity: Philodendron 'White Princess' benefits from higher humidity but can tolerate average indoor levels. If you notice the leaf tips becoming brown and crispy, it’s a sign that the humidity might be too low. Increase humidity by misting the leaves regularly, placing a humidifier nearby, or using a pebble tray.

Temperature: Keep the plant in an environment that’s consistently between 65-78°F (18-25°C). Avoid drafts and sudden temperature changes, which can stress the plant.

Child and Pet Safety: Like many Philodendrons, the 'White Princess' is toxic if ingested. It contains calcium oxalate crystals that can irritate the mouth, tongue, and throat and cause gastrointestinal upset in pets and humans. Therefore, it's best to keep this plant out of reach of children and pets.

General Tips: Fertilize every month during the growing season with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength. Prune any excessive growth or remove yellowing leaves to keep the plant healthy and tidy. Support its climbing habit with a stake or trellis to encourage vertical growth.
