Philodendron 'Birkin' Care

Philodendron 'Birkin' is a cultivar that does not occur in the wild. It is the result of a natural mutation that occurred in a Philodendron ‘Rojo Congo’. 'Rojo Congo' is a hybrid that was created by crossing Philodendron ‘Imperial Red’ and Philodendron ‘Tatei’. 'Imperial Red' and 'Tatei' are themselves hybrids. (Crazy!) Due to this genetic background, 'Birkin' have a small chance of putting out leaves with a reddish hue or a solid color. The solid color is a sign that the new growth is reverting to 'Rojo Congo.' View the slideshow to learn how to care for 'Birkin' (very easy BTW) and how to prune away new reverting growth.
