A variegated Philodendron, Berkin showcases dark green heart-shaped glossy leaves which start off green and gradually develop variegation as leaves grow.

SUNLIGHT
  • Set the plant in a location with bright, indirect sunlight.
  • Find a position near a window where the sun’s rays never actually touch the foliage.
  • While it’s normal for older leaves to yellow, if this happens to several leaves at the same time, the plant may be getting too much light.
  • On the other hand, if the stems are long and leggy with several inches between leaves, the plant probably isn’t getting enough light.
WATER
  • When growing philodendron plants, allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings.
  • The length of your index finger to the first knuckle is about an inch, so inserting your finger into the soil is a good way to check the moisture level.
  • Droopy leaves can mean that the plant is getting too much or not enough water.
  • But the leaves recover quickly when you correct the watering schedule.
FERTILIZER
  • Feed philodendron houseplants with a balanced liquid foliage houseplant fertilizer that contains macro-nutrients.
  • Water the plant with the fertilizer monthly in spring and summer and every six to eight weeks in fall and winter.
  • Slow growth and small leaf size is the plant’s way of telling you that it isn’t getting enough fertilizer.
  • Pale new leaves usually indicate that the plant isn’t getting enough calcium and magnesium, which are essential micro-nutrients for philodendrons.
