Philodendron Birkin is such an interesting and excellent houseplant, with white striped variegation on dark-green waxy leaves that truly looks marvelous. The stunning white stripes of these leaves contrast the dark emerald foliage (they almost look as if they were painted on) and they only become more prominent as it matures.
In Greek, Phileo means 'to love' and dendron means 'tree', so it's perhaps not surprising that Philodendrons grow as epiphytes in their native habitats in the rainforests of Brazil and Paraguay. If you're all about those tropical vibes then put Philodendron Birkin on your plant wish list.

Philodendron Birkin plants are generally easy to care for at home. Although the compact, leafy plant is native to humid tropical regions, it adapts well to indoor conditions. With its pinstripe white variegation contrasting with glossy green leaves, the Philodendron Birkin is a colorful addition to your collection of tropical and rare houseplants.
There can be considerable variation in the amount of variegation that Philodendron Birkin can exhibit, and those plants with more white leaves will need brighter light to thrive, than those with predominantly green leaves.
Bear in mind that lighting in your home will change through the year, so you may need to adjust your plant’s position to keep it out of intense sunlight in summer, and move it closer to a window to maximize lighting in winter.
Philodendron Birkin loves lightly moist soil that is allowed to dry out slightly between waterings. They can normally tolerate drought better than being overwatered, so make sure your plant actually needs a drink before lifting the watering can.
You should let the top 2-3cm (1 inch) of soil dry out before watering your Philodendron Birkin. Poke your finger into the soil to test how dry it is, but also lift the pot, as you will get a rough idea of how wet the soil is from the weight of the pot.
Philodendron Birkin care requirements include bright, indirect light, humidity of 40-70%, and well-draining soil. Water once the top inch of soil dries out, maintain temperatures of 60-85°F(16-30°C), avoid drafts, and fertilize lightly every 2-4 weeks during spring and summer.
