|Description||A hugely popular philodendron, with its bold dark green-burgundy leaves with large splashes and speckles of bright pink. It is a stand out plant, especially as it matures and the leaves grow larger. New leaves emerge a dark olive-green, maturing to a dark burgundy-green with pink tones. The pink princess is a natural climber, and needs a trellis, stake or moss pole to climb up, which also encourages large, healthy new leaves. Develops best pink colouring in bright indirect light. Requires a free draining mix. Allow surface to dry between watering, keep a little on the drier side in the winter.|
