philodendron Pink Princess and Red Empress

Posted by ZhivagoTom Atlanta (My Page) on

Does anyone have experience growing either philodendron Pink Princess or Red Empress? What are the ideal cultural conditions regarding light, temperature and fertilizer? What are the safe minimum temperatures? Are they slow or fast growers?
What are the factors that affect the amount of variegation in the Pink Princess leaves?

I have a greenhouse and am trying to situate my 2 new philos so they will be happy.

Thanks! Tom

RE: philodendron Pink Princess and Red Empress

My Pink Princess is an easy Philo to look after, at least for me. It thrives just a few feet away from a bright window and away from warm or cold air blowing directly on it. The new leaves emerge in light pink then turns to red mix with green and pink as it matures. I do not think it is much slower grower than any other Philo I grow. Good luck!
