Plant Bio

Philodendron Birkin

Philodendron ‘Birkin’ is a new houseplant that has emerged on the scene and it is believed to be a mutation of the more common philodendron variety Red Congo. It differs by featuring dark green leaves with dramatic creamy-white pinstripes. Like Red Congo, it is not a vining variety, so you don’t need to provide a support on which to climb. Like other philodendrons, Birkin is a member of the aroid family (Araceae), and shares kinship with plants like alocasia, monstera, and pothos.
