Becky, a Philodendron Birkin, is a striking plant with dark green leaves that almost looks like she’s been painted straight across her leaves! Native to the rainforests of South America, Becky is one of the new kids on the block which means she’s a rare find.
Did you know, that the word Philodendron comes from the Greek word phileo, meaning ’to love’ and dendron, meaning ‘tree’? So, basically you’d have yourself a love tree!
Becky, Philodendron Birkin - Small
Becky prefers indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight wouldn’t go a miss.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
