Philodendron 'pink princess' is another philodendron with super cool leaves that has variations of pink, white, bubble gum pink, maroon, green & anything in between. I've debated about listing our philodendron 'pink princess's early on because I'm soooo not into the hype of it. I feel they aren't worth the extreme money people were charging in the past. So here you have it friends, if you don't already know, this philo. has been a super hot trending aroid for some time now. It is a 'wish list' plant for many people and ours have specially nice coloration. These can grow in a bit brighter light than most variegated plants and super easy to grow. BUT plese note, they are known to be fickle in reverting to a solid color and/or changing their bright colors to dull/muted color tones. Ours get about a couple of hours of dappled full sun throughout the day. Though ours are growing in outdoor conditions with natural sun light, wind, rain, etc. so if you are going to be growing them indoors or a grow house you might get different coloration and/or patterns than what ours look like. Maybe even better than ours :) One thing we do see is they don't like to be moved around alot if you are trying to find the right spot for them. Our best advice is to put them where you think they will do best and leave them to acclimate for as long as you can. If you need to move them, try to make small adjustments rather than a drastic move or a big change.
Like all aroids, 'pink princess' grows in warm high humidity, moist soil and bright light. We currently have them growing in part sun/part shade as understory plants under palms & tree canopy. They will usually need some sort of structure to grow on as they get larger as they will want to either sprawling on the ground or clambering up a structure. Philodendrons are great climbers and can attach themselves to grow on a wall and tree/palm trunk for a spectacular display. They can also grow along the ground if growing in the landscape looking for something to cling to.
Though be aware for all you pet owners and parents to check whether any plant has poisonous elements to it before introducing it as a house plant. The philodendron family is considered poisonous if parts of the actual plant are ingested. Here is a link for your concerns on the symptoms and treatment for philodendrons because we are animal lovers and parents as well.
