Forget the Birkin handbag - this is the designer item you want! New in-demand variety of philo with deep green leaves strongly striped with creamy-white. Really nice addition to your houseplant corner, and like most philodendrons, it's pretty easy to take care of.
DESCRIPTION: Ornamental plant with dark green heart shaped glossy leaves which start off green and gradually develop variegation as leaves grow. Brighter light may increase colour contrast also. Usually stays compact.
USE IN: Attractive indoor plant; will grow in subtropical gardens as shaded underplanting.
PLANTING: Needs a warm frost-free position, avoid direct hot sunlight. Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks.
CARE: For best results provide plenty of bright, filtered light. Protect from cold and keep moist during hot periods, letting it dry out a little between so it's not overwatered. Philodendrons thrive in humid conditions, mist regularly. Apply a slow release fertiliser during spring and a liquid based fertiliser every 2-4 weeks during the warmer months, take care to dilute your solution to half the recommended dose to avoid burn. For indoor plants - wipe leaves gently with a damp cloth if you notice them collecting dust, this will refresh the foliage to its usual glossy finish. Re-pot container plants at the beginning of spring.
If you have heating units or air-conditioners, it is best to avoid placing plants underneath or next to them. This is because of the air blowing out from these units can be extremely hot or cold which can leave a healthy plant burnt, damaged and stressed.

*Disclaimer: We pack our gorgeous plants for shipment extremely carefully, however we do ask that you keep in mind that once they leave our store, we cannot guarantee how carefully they are handled in transit. We cannot guarantee they have been sung to or talked to by the postmen!
So, if a leaf is a little bent, bruised or maybe a small stem broken off, we cannot control this. If by some chance your plant did not arrive alive, never fear, we have got you covered just email our customer service team email@example.com and we will either replace the plants pronto or refund you.
