Plant Care Guide: Philodendron Birkin

Philodendron 'Birkin' // Philodendron 'Birkin' 

A true style queen; the Philodendron Birkin's striking variegations make her a stand out in a crowd. If you're looking for a plant pal to elevate your style game, then the Birkin's your gal. Bright, indirect light will keep this beauty's variegations bright and creamy, and be careful not to overwater.

Love notes

Keep your plant pal nourished and supported with a good quality plant food like We The Wild Grow Concentrate and We The Wild Support Pellets. These powerful plant essentials will keep your plants happy, strong and resilient, and will reward you with new growth a'plenty! 
These beauties thrive in humid conditions, so you can give them a mist every so often, and don't forget to wipe down those leaves when they're looking a little dusty. You can also spray with We The Wild Protect Spray every couple of weeks to keep leaves looking lush and healthy. 
Follow the recommended advise on watering above - if unsure, a Moisture Meter could be your secret weapon! This handy tool will show you exactly how dry your soil is to avoid any over or under watering fails. 
To ensure your new bestie gets enough drainage, we recommend keeping them in a nursery pot and displaying in a cover pot. If you do want to pot up your plant, make sure your decorative pot has a drainage hole and you've removed the plug. 
Thanks to those stunning variegations, the Philodendron Birkin is one of those plants that looks expensive, but doesn't come with the hefty price tag, making her a great investment for the style conscious plant parent.
New Birkin leaves can sometimes lose their bright stripes, reverting back to their non-variegated version. If this happens and you'd prefer to keep her variegated look, simply trim back those non-variegated leaves, and pop her in some bright-indirect light to encourage her variegated leaves to grow.
