About the plant: Philodendrons come from the rainforests of Central and South America. Their name is derived from the Greek wordphileo= to love adendron= tree, because many varieties are climbing and can cling to trees with their aerial roots. We can ensure a similar life for them in domestic conditions as well, if we give them some support in the flowerpot, which they could also climb on, e.g. a coconut stick.
Philodendron White Princesshas dark green oblong leaves with white spots or annealing. The white variegation is different every time, which is why each piece is unique! This cultivar has slightly lighter leaves than Philodendron White Knight.
It belongs to the Araceae family - so beware, it is poisonous! These plants contain calcium oxalate crystals in their tissues, which after ingestion will cause irritation of the mucous membranes of the oral cavity and digestive tract. But if we place it in a safe place where children and pets can't reach it, its amazing color will surely catch everyone's eye.

Every plant is different, just like us humans. Please allow for a possible deviation in appearance compared to the product photo.
Because even in its country of origin it lives attached to trees in the forest, it does not need too much light even at home. Brighter diffused light will do, but certainly not direct sunlight, as it could burn the leaves.
It prefers higher air humidity, it will do well near an air humidifier, we can also mist it. Or place it on a saucer with pebbles, which you fill with water - but be careful that the water does not touch its roots.
It is propagated by top or stem cuttings, which are best cut in spring. If the plant is mature enough, even a cut will benefit it and make it thicker. Let the cuttings root in water or in a mixture of peat and sand at approx. 25 °C.
