Out of stock



The Pink Princess Philodendron prefers loose and well-draining highly organic soil, giving best variegation in bright, indirect light. Water heavily when the top few inches of the soil dry up. Ideal temperatures and humidity are 55-95 F (13-35 C) and 50%+. Use balanced fertilizer in moderation every 4-6 weeks.

Philodendron Pink Princess prefers loose, well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. These plants grow best in consistently moist soil so choose a soil mix that retains a lot of soil moisture, but it should not remain soggy. An Aroid potting mix is perfect for potting your Pink Princess.

The perfect soil mix for Philodendron Pink Princess drains quickly, holds adequate moisture, and is rich in nutrients to supply the rampant grower with all the nutrients it needs to grow healthily.  

Just like other Aroids such as Monstera Deliciosa or Pothos, Philodendrons prefer soil that is brimming with natural nutrients and beneficial soil microorganisms.

Philodendron erubescens is native to the rain forests of South America, where they grow on the humus-rich forest floor. The rain forest floor always holds abundant water, but the soil never is too soggy.

You need to replicate such conditions to help your Pink Princess plant thrive in your home or garden. A quick solution to achieve optimum soil conditions is to purchase an Aroid potting mix from your plant supply shop.

However, just buying and using a potting mix takes all the fun out of caring for such a precious plant. If you have the time, preparing your custom Pink Princess potting mix at home is an excellent idea.

Moreover, a DIY custom soil mix is a much cheaper option and allows you to prepare perfect soil combinations for all your houseplants.
