Care Guide

Light Level: Indirect Sunlight

This plant loves direct sunlight. Place it by a window or on a porch that gets direct, natural light for at least a portion of the day.

Water Level: Thirsty

This plant can only go 1-2 weeks without water so check on it weekly and add water every time the top two inches of soil dry out.

Quick Tips

Birkin is relatively slow growing, especially compared to other common philodendron varieties. Be patient with it.

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.
