Common Problems with a Philodendron Birkin

The Ultimate Philodendron Growing Guide: Tips and Care Information

 

Photographs are representative of the species and not always of the specific plant shipped. Normal variations in size, pruning and leaf structure may occur.

Sun: Indirect

Provide bright, indirect sunlight to promote healthy growth. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

Light: Medium

Aim for medium to bright indirect light for optimal growth. Too little light may result in leggy growth, while too much direct sunlight can cause leaf burn.

Water: When mostly dry

Water your Philodendron Birkin when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.

Humidity: Medium

Maintain moderate to high humidity levels, ideally between 50-60%. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves or placing a humidifier nearby.

Pet Friendly: No

Philodendron Birkin is toxic to pets if ingested. Keep it out of reach of curious pets to ensure their safety.

Pro Tip

To encourage bushier growth and maintain the variegation of your Philodendron Birkin, periodically rotate the plant to ensure even light exposure on all sides. This helps prevent the plant from leaning towards the light source and promotes balanced growth throughout.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
