About Me

Introduce a touch of tropical flair to your home with the Philodendron Birkin! This captivating houseplant boasts lush green leaves adorned with unique creamy white or yellow stripes, making it a true conversation starter.

A sought-after variety of philodendron, the Birkin is believed to be either a rare mutation of the Philodendron 'Rojo Congo' or a hybrid of two philodendron cultivars, 'Congo' and 'Imperial Green'. It stands out for its beautiful variegated foliage and offers several reasons to bring it into your home:

  • Striking Variegation: The Birkin's defining feature is its stunning variegation. The glossy green leaves are splashed with creamy white or yellow streaks, creating a vibrant contrast and a touch of the unexpected.
  • Easy Care: The Birkin is a relatively low-maintenance plant despite its rarity. It's forgiving of neglect and thrives with consistent care.
  • Compact Climber: The Birkin has a bushy growth habit and can climb with support. This makes it versatile for displaying on shelves or windowsills or climbing a moss pole for a vertical accent.

Plant Height: 35cm

Pot Width: 14cm

While not as common as other philodendrons, the Philodendron Birkin is a rewarding plant for those seeking unique beauty with easygoing care.

Care Instructions

The Philodendron Birkin thrives with consistent care:

  • Light: Prefers bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sun, which can scorch the leaves. It can tolerate lower light conditions but may produce fewer leaves with less variegation.
  • Water: Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering thoroughly. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot.
  • Humidity: Appreciates moderate humidity levels. Regular misting, a pebble tray filled with water, or a humidifier can help create a happy environment.
  • Toxicity: Mildly toxic to pets and humans if ingested. Keep out of reach of curious creatures and little ones.

Bellr Bonus Tip!

The variegation on Philodendron Birkin becomes more prominent as the plant matures. Younger plants may have less defined stripes. You can encourage bushier growth by pruning the top of the plant. New growth will emerge from the cut areas.
