Light Requirements

Philodendron Birkin plants enjoy bright, indirect sunlight which can be attained by placing at a distance from a window and not directly in front of it. That is what makes this plant so versatile as it will thrive in almost any place you put it. Lack of light will cause the detailed lines on its leaves to fade and the shape of the plant will become irregular as it grows towards the light source.

Watering Schedule

Hydration is key when caring for this plant as it enjoys having moist soil. As soon as you notice that the top 1 or 2 inches of soil is dry, then it is time to water it. Allow the soil to drain thoroughly after watering and aim to follow a schedule of watering the Birkin once a week.

Humidity

The Philodendron Birkin is a humidity lover so to ensure you keep the plant happy, misting every few days is a must. Alternatively, you can place it on a pebble tray which can increase humidity with less maintenance. Another effective way to keep the Philodendron Birkin happy is to place it around other plants which will increase humidity too.

Additional Tips

The Philodendron Birkin is toxic to animals so it is vital that you keep it away from your furry friends. Additionally, yellow leafy tips could be a sign of overwatering so getting the right balance is important.
