The Philodendron "Pink Princess" (Philodendron erubescens) is a stunning and sought-after variety of the philodendron plant known for its striking pink and green foliage. Here's what you need to know about caring for the Philodendron Pink Princess:


  • The Pink Princess philodendron is recognized for its heart-shaped leaves that feature a unique variegation of dark green, light green, and varying shades of pink or burgundy.
  • The intensity of the pink coloration can vary from plant to plant, and new leaves often emerge with more vibrant pink hues.
  • The plant typically grows as a vine, and it can trail or climb with proper support.

Care Tips:

  1. Light: Provide your Pink Princess philodendron with bright, indirect light. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, which can scorch its delicate foliage. Inadequate light can result in less vibrant pink coloration.

  2. Watering: Keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Be cautious not to let the plant sit in standing water, which can lead to root rot.

  3. Humidity: Pink Princess philodendrons thrive in high humidity environments. Consider misting the leaves regularly or using a room humidifier to maintain humidity levels.

  4. Temperature: Maintain temperatures between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C). Protect the plant from drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations, especially during the winter months.

  5. Soil: Plant your Pink Princess in well-draining potting soil. A mix formulated for aroids (such as philodendrons) with good aeration works well.

  6. Fertilization: Feed your plant with a balanced, diluted liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or eliminate fertilization during the winter months when growth slows down.

  7. Pruning: Prune your Pink Princess philodendron to control its size and shape. Trimming back leggy stems and removing any yellowing or damaged leaves can help maintain its appearance.

  8. Repotting: Pink Princess philodendrons do not need frequent repotting. Repot when the plant becomes root-bound, typically every 2-3 years.
