The older the plant becomes, the bigger the chance that the new leaves are pink (or contain). The color is therefore changeable, the plant is a kind of chameleon. New leaves can be more pink. Provided the plant gets a lot of light, but is not in full sun. Keep in mind that what seems to us 'a lot of light' is not the right light spectrum for a plant. If your plant does not make pink, you should probably change the light intensity and/or the light spectrum.
These plants are sensitive; Due to low humidity or a sudden high temperature, cells can fold inwards. Brown spots can then occur instead of pink. Unfortunately, this is something that can occur during transport, for example. These spots also grow out again, it doesn't hurt for the health of the plant. We do our utmost to pack them carefully and well!
Rarely do one see one Philodendron With dark leaves. The combination of the dark leaves with the pink shades of this 'pink princess' are therefore unique. The stems are also pink tinted. The young leaves appear as dark olive green with white variation. As the plants grow up, the bright pink spots appear. This coloring may depend on the light level.
Philodendron Pink Princess "Marble" is a climbing Araceae and can be supported with a plant stick with moss or coconut fiber. This plant grows easily in the living room. The leaves can be up to 25-35 centimeters long.
Place the Philodendron In a location with clear, indirect sunlight. Ideal is a place near a window where the sun's rays never touch the foliage. The light level must be built up. Although it is normal for older leaves to turn yellow, it is a bad sign when several leaves turn yellow at the same time. Then the plant may get too much light. On the other hand, when the stems are long -legged with a few centimeters between the leaves, the plant probably doesn't get enough light. This can also be seen in a vague leaf color since good light is required for maximum coloring. Plain pink leaves can be a goal for growers, but this is not often seen. Moreover, the plant must be mature enough to show the pink color.
This one Philodendron Preferes moist but well -drained soil. Allow the top centimeter of soil to dry up between the casts. Put your finger in the ground is a good way to check the moisture level. Hanging leaves can mean that the plant gets too much or not enough water. But the leaves recover quickly when you correct this.
The ideal temperature for the Philodendron Is between 18 to 25 ° C during the day and around 15 ° C at night.
Philodendrons do the best in loose and airy soil. They grow well in sphagnum moss. Mixtures such as peat-vermiculite or peat-perlite are also fine.
Give the plant some fertilizer in the water every month during spring and summer. This may be reduced in the fall, nutrition is not necessary in the winter. If the plant does not get any food, it will grow little and have smaller leaves. A light blue appearance on the leaves usually indicates that the plant does not get enough calcium and magnesium, which are essential micronutrients for Philodendrons.
