About Pink Princess Philodendron
The Pink Princess Philodendron has developed a cult following in recent years 💕. Known for its famed pink leaves, mature specimens of this plant have sold for thousands of dollars. Philodendrons grow aerial roots that grip the bark of trees, allowing them to grow over 20 feet tall! Their heart-shaped leaves change shape as they climb and can grow larger than a dinner plate. Fossils show Philodendrons growing as far back as 30 million years ago when South America was still connected to Antarctica! ❄️

What other plant parents say
If you love pink, you’ll love philo. Pink princess! They thrive in high humidity & I’ve found they also do well in leca. When given a pole, they’ll put off larger leaves. They do brown / not put out a lot of pink if in too bright of light.
Very beautiful low color Philodendron Pink Princess from American Plant Exchange (more light will give it more color they say). Best price available for a great plant. Shop around for the best plant for you! These babies don’t come cheap. And they prefer distilled water and high humidity. If you’re getting this Pink Princess do yourself and it a favor and get a distiller and a levoit humidifier. They’ll help you give her the proper care!
