The Philodendron Birkin is a beautiful plant with striking white stripes on its green leaves. These patterns might make you think that the Philodendron Birkin is a difficult plant to take care of, but luckily that's not true. The Philodendron Birkin shows you when it's not happy, which makes it the perfect plant for beginners.

Light: The Philodendron Birkin is the perfect house plant when it comes to light requirements. It doesn't want to be in a low-light place, but also not in direct sunlight. However, you can put it in any other type of light exposure. This makes it great for windowsills that don't get any direct sunlight, or just any other place away from windows in sunny rooms.This plant doesn't like low-light situations. When it doesn't get enough sunlight, two things will happen. The first thing you'll notice is that the plant starts to grow towards a light source. The second thing is that the bright white lines on its leaves will start to fade to dark green.When the Philodendron Birkin is exposed to direct sunlight, it will get sunburns quite easily. Once you see sunburns, move your plant to a place where it doesn't get any direct sunlight.

Watering: Watering your Philodendron Birkin is one of the easiest things to get right. Watering is always quite a tough subject when it comes to plant care, but not for this plant. The Philodendron Birkin is a thirsty plant and likes to be watered as soon as the soil is dry.If you're looking for a watering schedule to use for this plant, it's this: Water this plant once per week. It doesn't really matter which season it is at the moment, this plant loves to be in moist soil most of the time. Even though it loves to be in moist soil, it also likes to dry out.

The Philodendron Birkin, like many other tropical plants is toxic to both pets and humans. Because of this, make sure you keep it out of range of your cats and dogs, but also small children.
