Philodendron White Princess Plant Care

Family: AraceaeBotanical name: Philodendron erubescens 'White Princess'

By on

Philodendron White Princess it's a rare Philodendron with stunning foliage. The broad leaves with splashes of white make this plant stand out in any environment.

This Philodendron is part of the Araceae family, which contains over 400 different species. Like all other Philodendrons, the White Princess has both underground and aerial roots. The air roots allow the plant to attach to trees or poles for support or to gather water and other supplements from their environment.

Philodendron White Princess are slow growers. To create an optimum environment for them to grow, you will need to provide high humidity, good light levels and temperatures between 18-23 degrees Celsius.


Due to its stunning variegation this Philodendron requires an abundance of indirect light to maintain it. If you notice browning on the white parts of the leaves it needs more light to photosynthesise.

Lower amount of lights will likely cause the variegation to fade and could result in the plant dying.


Water when top soil is dry but don’t the plant plant suffer long dry spells.


These are tropical plants and require humidity to survive. A humidity of 60%-80% is needed for most Philodendrons.


Adjust feeding to your growing environment and plant growing patterns. I personally fertilise all year around but that’s because my growing environment remains pretty consistent all year round.

Moisture level

If you are using a moisture meter to measure, keep the soil moisture level around 4 in between watering.
