We are in luck! We found this beautiful and RARE plant in our stock!
The Philodendron Birkin is the newly discovered when it comes to trending house plants and it is bound to intrigue any plant enthusiast. The name Philodendron comes from the Greek word phileo, meaning “to love” and dendron meaning “tree”.
Birkins stand out from the other houseplants and brings creativity to your home. The Birkin grows to become a compact plant of rounded leaves which display dramatic pin stripe variegated line across their face. The height of the mature Birkin is something that is yet to be confirmed.
The Birkin isn’t the fastest growing Philodendron so pick a pot you love as you will be able to enjoy it. The Birkin will tolerate our dry indoor conditions, but thrives in humidity as most Philodendrons do. A misting from time to time would be welcomed.
Note that it might be toxic to pets, so put it somewhere nobody can get a bite of it.
