Patches of pink stand out against the dark green of the heart-shaped leaves, giving the Pink Princess Philodendron, or Philodendron erubescens a distinctive and memorable look. The Pink Princess is a popular plant, and for a good reason. Philodendrons are easy to maintain, and this beauty is a head-turner. A lack of chlorophyll causes the unique coloring of the leaves, and the amount of light the plant receives will impact the variegation. The Pink Princess Philodendron has an upright growth habit, and the foliage grows from a central stem. 

Best Locations For Growing Pink Princess Philodendron

Sunlight and visibility are perhaps the most important factors when choosing a home for your Pink Princess Philodendron. A location with bright indirect light is best, but you also want a spot you frequent to admire the pink variegation. High humidity will benefit the plant, but you can also use a pebble tray or humidifier to make the plant feel at home.

Pink Princess Philodendron Sunlight Requirements

The Pink Princess Philodendron is prized for its pink foliage, and the amount of sunlight the plant receives directly impacts the color of the leaves. This stunner needs bright indirect sunlight to put on a colorful display. Direct light will damage the foliage, so avoid a spot directly in a south-facing window. The leaves will revert to green without enough light, and the plant may become leggy. A grow light is a good solution if the plant is not receiving the sunlight it needs.

Pink Princess Philodendron Care

Once you have the sunlight and humidity dialed in, the Pink Princess Philodendron is generally low maintenance. Remove dead or damaged leaves as they appear, so the plant can direct energy into new growth. The Pink Princess Philodendron is a slow grower, so be patient and give it time, and you’ll be rewarded with lovely foliage.

Watering Pink Princess Philodendron

Wait for the top few inches of soil to dry before watering the plant. The Pink Princess Philodendron has medium water needs; give the plant a deep drink when it is time to water. Let excess water drain through the pot, and never leave the Philodendron in standing water because that can damage the roots. High humidity will keep the leaves healthy.

Feeding Pink Princess Philodendron

Feed the Pink Princess Philodendron using a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer monthly during the spring and summer. Fertilizing the plant during the growing season will encourage new growth and keep this beauty looking its best.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
