Philodendrons are known to have amazing air-purifying benefits. They help remove harmful airborne toxins and break them down into organic matter, reducing levels of xylene and formaldehyde.

Philodendron 'Birkin': Good For You!

  • Indoor humidity: Tropical plants are known to help increase indoor humidity. This can help trap dust, relieve dry skin and other benefits like reducing infections and allergies.
  • Empathy and compassion: Studies have shown that looking after and caring for plants can help build more compassion and empathy towards those around you.

Plant Care Tips

  • Light: Philodendron 'Birkin's thrive in bright spots! Place in a bright area with plenty of indirect light or filtered bright light. Optimal locations help your plant maintain lovely white-yellow variegation.
  • Water: Water every one to two weeks. Check the soil and allow the top 5 cm to dry in between watering. Ensure there’s proper drainage.
  • Fertilizer: Birkin’s appreciate being fed monthly. Use a balanced fertilizer during their active growing periods, from Spring to Summer.
  • Propagation: To propagate, take a stem cutting with a node and place in soil or water. In water, let the roots grow to around 5-7 cm long and plant in soil. 
  • Repotting: Check to see if the plant needs repotting every 12-18 months. If the roots are coiled, repot with a pot that's 5 cm larger in diameter than the previous pot. If you want faster growth, repot when the roots are poking through the pot’s holes.

Where is it from?

Whilst this plant is a designer plant, it is part of the Philodendron genus which are native to Brazil’s and Paraguay’s rainforests.

Is the Philodendron 'Birkin' for me?

With just one look, it’s easy to see why the Birkin is a must-have amongst all plant lovers. Each leaf is a masterpiece, decorated with dramatic thin creamy-white stripes. Birkins are easy to care for, as long as you have a little knowledge under your belt! They are great beginner-friendly plants and avid gardeners alike. 

Fun fact:

The Birkin doesn’t have just any ordinary background. It came into existence through a rare mutation in the Philodendron Rojo Congo’s leaf, creating unique variegation. Fascinated with its new form, the grower propagated the leaf which grew into the Birkin we know today. Now, all new Birkin plants are created through tissue culture! 

Philodendron 'Birkin': Common Problems

My plant is losing its variegation. What shall I do?

Your plant might not be getting enough light. Move into a bright area with plenty of indirect light.

The edges of my plant’s leaves are turning brown

This can be a symptom of your plant suffering from low humidity levels. Mist with a spray bottle or turn on a humidifier. They love humidity!

Common Pests: Susceptible to spider mites.

You’ll notice fine webbing and small round yellow or browning on the leaves. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Can Philodendron 'Birkin' revert?

As the Birkin grows, it can revert to its original variety - the Rojo Congo. If this happens, cut the green leaves back and leave only the variegated type. Ensure your plant is in a bright location with lots of indirect light.

My Birkin’s leaves are turning yellow

This is commonly caused by overwatering. Stop watering immediately and check for root rot. Disregard any root rot you identify. Ensure you only water when the top 5 cm of soil is dry.
