These incredible plants are one of the newer hybrids to make it into the plant world and we love them! Birkins do not exist in the wild, they came to be completely by accident. It started out as a mutation in the Philodedron Congo Rojo, known as a spontaneous chimeric mutation. It was cut from the plant and propagated and the variegation proved to be stable. Now all Birkins are produced via tissue culture. Although the leaves are typically green with white pinstripes, they can also produce fully red or slightly pink variegation in the leaves, which originates from it's mother plant, the Congo Rojo.
Light: Bright indirect sunlight is ideal for your Birkin. You can place it indoors near a window, where the sun lights but doesn’t reach the plant directly. Importantly, exposure to direct sunlight may burn the foliage.
Water: These plants prefer to stay slightly moist during their active growth periods, however, avoid letting the soil get soggy. The best way to do this is to allow your soil to dry out slightly in between watering.
If ingested, poisonous to people and pets.
