The leaves of the White Princess are heart-shaped and have a dark green base color with prominent white variegation that often takes on a creamy, almost silvery hue. The variegation can be in the form of stripes, splashes, or patches and varies from plant to plant. The Philodendron White Princess can grow up to 2 feet tall and wide, but it can be pruned to maintain a smaller size.

Philodendron White Princess is a low-maintenance plant that can thrive in a range of lighting conditions from bright indirect light to medium shade. It prefers well-draining soil and should be watered moderately, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. The plant can also benefit from occasional misting or wiping of the leaves to keep them clean and dust-free.

Philodendron White Princess is a popular houseplant due to its striking appearance and ease of care. It can be grown as a trailing or climbing plant and is often used in hanging baskets or on trellises. It is also a popular choice for terrariums and indoor gardens.
