The Philodendron is native to Colombia and this latest designer variety is called the Birkin. This easy to care for plant can adapt to all kinds of conditions (as long as its warm), making it a popular houseplant. The Philodendron Birkin has stunning glossy green leaves that as the plant matures will develop a stripe or variegated look. The Philodendron Birkin doesn’t require a lot of watering. Allow the top layer of soil to dry between watering. The Philodendron Birkin thrive in humid conditions, so ensure you protect your plant from the frost. Position in bright, indirect sunlight to help encourage the leaf to develop the variegating. If you plant is indoors mist regularly, and wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to keep the foliage looking shiny and fresh.
