The best part is , it does not make for a difficult plant to care for. Give your Pink Princess the brightest indirect light possible short of direct sunlight to keep the leaves producing pink variegation and provide it with relatively warm humid conditions to keep it looking its best.
This Philodendron is a little slower growing than most and will require some form of support as it journeys upwards, such as a moss pole, although they can be left to hang. Be warned however, that over time she can become rather large and with maturity will lose most of her pink colouring, this can be rectified by propagating pinker parts of the plant often.
Pair your Princess with a sleek planter to allow its foliage to be its focal point and place either on it's own as a statement piece or cluster with other plants, to allow its pink to contrast.
Ultimately, sit back and revel in your Princesses beauty, while she works hard at purifying your air removing household toxins and leaving your home jungle fresh!
