The Pink Princess Philodendron is a beautiful hybrid climbing Philodendron with colorful variegated foliage in shades of pink, purple, cream and green. This plant prefers bright light (no direct sun), warmth, high humidity and a well draining potting medium. Some people like to allow this plant to trail out of the pot but I prefer to give it a support for climbing. I wrapped a tree branch with coir (coconut fiber) and placed it in the container allowing my young plant to climb.

I lost most of my plant to the cold last winter but was able to save one stem (pictured) and it seems to be recovering. I have hopes that it will continue to do well, and this winter I will bring it inside!
