About White Princess (Philodendron erubescens)

Care Instructions

Light Requirements:

Blushing Philodendrons thrive in bright, indirect light. They can tolerate lower light conditions but will grow best with plenty of indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.

Water Requirements:

Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Reduce watering in the winter months when the plant's growth slows.

Soil Requirements:

Use a well-draining potting mix. A mix designed for aroids or a blend of potting soil with peat moss and perlite works well.

Humidity:

Philodendron erubescens prefers high humidity levels. Regular misting or placing a humidifier nearby can help maintain the necessary humidity, especially in dry indoor conditions.

Pro Tip

Provide a moss pole or trellis for the White Princess to climb. This will help it grow taller and develop larger, more vibrant leaves.
