The Philodendron White Princess, a resplendent rarity among houseplants, originates from the lush, tropical rainforests of South America. This exquisite plant has captivated the hearts of indoor plant enthusiasts in New Zealand, weaving its way into homes as a symbol of sophistication and a beacon of natural beauty. Its striking variegation, featuring glossy green leaves adorned with white, and occasionally pink, accents, makes it a coveted addition to any plant collection.

Why the Philodendron White Princess Commands a Premium


The allure of the Philodendron White Princess lies not just in its beauty but also in its rarity. Its unique variegation requires precise conditions to thrive and propagate, contributing to its higher cost. This plant is more than an ornament; it's a living piece of art, each one boasting a unique pattern, making it highly sought after among collectors and enthusiasts in New Zealand.

Deciphering the Royal Lineage: White Princess vs. White Wizard


The Philodendron White Princess and White Wizard are both celebrated for their stunning variegation, but they bear distinct differences. The White Princess generally exhibits a more compact growth habit and its leaves are adorned with a mix of white and green, often with hints of pink. The White Wizard, on the other hand, tends to have larger leaves and more pronounced white variegation, lacking the pink hues. Both are jewels of nature, but their subtle differences cater to varied aesthetic preferences.

Cultivating Your Own Royal Beauty: Care Tips

Caring for a Philodendron White Princess involves mimicking its native tropical environment. It thrives in bright, indirect light, which encourages vibrant variegation without risking sunburn. The soil should be well-draining and allowed to dry slightly between waterings to prevent root rot. A consistent temperature between 18°C to 29°C suits this tropical beauty well, making it a perfect indoor companion for the New Zealand climate.

A Spectrum of Colors: The Pink Phenomenon

The Philodendron White Princess occasionally surprises with leaves that develop pink variegation, a rare and delightful quirk that adds to its allure. This pink hue can appear due to genetic variations or specific growing conditions, such as light exposure, making each plant truly one-of-a-kind.

The Pinnacle of Rarity: Philodendron Treasures

While the White Princess holds its own in terms of rarity and beauty, the Philodendron spiritus-sancti reigns supreme as the rarest in the world. Native to a small area in Brazil, its limited natural habitat and breathtaking appearance make it the Holy Grail of Philodendrons.

Illuminating the White Princess: Light Requirements

The Philodendron White Princess flourishes under bright, indirect sunlight. This level of illumination ensures its leaves remain vibrant and its variegation pronounced. Direct sunlight, however, should be avoided to prevent damage to its delicate leaves.

The Stability of Beauty: Variegation Consistency

Variegation in the White Princess is relatively stable but can vary with changes in light conditions. Ensuring consistent, indirect light helps maintain its striking patterns. However, nature's unpredictability adds to the excitement of growing such a splendid specimen.

Embracing the Royal Elegance in New Zealand

The Philodendron White Princess represents a blend of nature's artistry and the nurturing spirit of those who grow it. In New Zealand, where appreciation for the natural world runs deep, incorporating such a plant into the home aligns with values of beauty, sustainability, and well-being. Its care requirements, though specific, are a testament to the dedication of plant lovers, and its rare beauty enhances any space, making it a cherished addition to New Zealand homes.

By integrating this tropical marvel into our living spaces, we in New Zealand not only enrich our indoor environments but also connect with a wider community of plant enthusiasts who share a love for nature's most exquisite creations. The Philodendron White Princess, with its elegant variegation and captivating presence, remains a symbol of sophistication and a commitment to bringing the unparalleled beauty of the tropics into our daily lives.

This is a lovely established plant in a 15cm nursery pot. Please note that the plant received will be the one shown.

If kept in the right conditions it will continue to send out new growth into Summer. I would recommend keeping it in a spot with high indirect light, to ensure the variegation stays strong.

Please note that the plant will be delivered in a 15cm size black nursery pot. Please feel free to add a 15 or 16cm Ceramic Pot to your order from our selection.
