Description

The Variegated Philodendron ‘Burle Marx’ is a great way to start learning how to care for rare and variegated plants without the pressure of losing a huge investment. This climbing, trailing vine will begin to produce oblong leaves as it matures, and the variegation should continue to impress as long as you provide the plant with bright, indirect light. Too little light and the variegation will begin to fade, and too much will cause the lightest parts to burn, but luckily if you move it as soon as you notice a change it should recover with time. Watering needs are the same as other philodendrons, and we do recommend a moss pole with humidity on the higher end for best results!
