One of the most rare and desired tropical houseplants, the Philodendron White Princess hails from the humid rainforests of South America. Bearing large, heart shaped leaves with generous splashes of marbled variegation, this houseplant is an energetic climber, producing strong aerial roots that look for something to cling onto. Providing it with a moss pole comes highly recommended, enabling this stunning cultivar to continue to thrive.

Variegated plants have long been popular due to their crisp cream and / or white marble-like patterns adding delightful and distinctive interest to a houseplant’s foliage. Variegation in leaf colour occurs due to the lack of green pigment chlorophyll in some plant cells, as a result of cell mutation.
