120 - 150cm Philodendron Pink Princess on a mosspole 27cm Pot House Plant
Philodendron Pink Princess is a popular houseplant known for its attractive pink and green variegated foliage. Here are some care tips to help you keep your Philodendron Pink Princess healthy and thriving on a mosspole:
Light: Philodendron Pink Princess prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can burn the leaves and cause damage. If your plant is in a low light area, consider using grow lights to supplement its light needs.
Water: Keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry. Make sure to water the moss pole as well to ensure that the roots of the plant can access enough moisture. Avoid overwatering as it can lead to root rot.
Humidity: Philodendron Pink Princess loves high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by placing a humidifier near the plant or by placing a tray of water near the plant. Alternatively, you can mist the leaves regularly to help increase humidity.
Temperature: Philodendron Pink Princess prefers warm temperatures between 65-80°F (18-26°C). Keep the plant away from drafts and cold windows.
Fertilizer: You can fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced liquid fertilizer. Do not fertilize during the dormant season (fall and winter).
Pruning: You can prune the plant to control its size and shape or to remove any damaged or yellowing leaves. This will also help promote new growth and variegation.
Propagation: You can propagate your Philodendron Pink Princess by taking stem cuttings with at least one node and rooting them in water or soil. Make sure to keep the cuttings in a warm, humid environment until they have rooted.
Pests: Philodendron Pink Princess can be prone to spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects. Inspect the plant regularly and treat any pests promptly with an appropriate insecticide.
Soil: Philodendron Pink Princess prefers a well-draining soil mix that is rich in organic matter. You can use a mixture of peat moss, perlite, and potting soil to create a soil mix that is well-draining and nutrient-rich.
Using a moss pole is a great way to support your Philodendron Pink Princess as it grows and to promote new growth. Following these care tips will help your plant thrive and stay healthy, allowing you to enjoy its beautiful variegated foliage for years to come.
