The Philodendron Birkin is a real favourite among houseplants, Philo also means 'to love' in Greek. Originally, this plant comes from the tropical rainforests and it is a climbing plant by nature. Rest assured, this variant will not climb to your ceiling! The white markings on the leaves are striking, although you will not see much of them when you buy the plant. The older the plant gets, the more stripes it will get on its new leaves. As the plant grows more leaves, a contrast of colours will develop.
