Birkins are identified by their round, deep green leaves with mildly pointed tips and vivid white pinstripes and variegation. They do not exist in the wild, and came to be because of a rare mutation in the Philodendron Rojo Congo plant. It was then separated and propagated, and to this day most Birkin plants are produced in this way.
The philodendron is a mainstay in any plant lovers collection and is an easy intro plant to the plant world. They come in vining growing patterns as well as bushy upright plants. Pay attention to your philodendron as their appearance can tell you exactly what it needs. Droopy leaves can mean that the plant is getting too much or not enough water. But the leaves recover quickly when you correct the watering schedule. Browning or discoloration can also indicate watering issues, as well as too much or too little sunlight. All in all, philodendrons are perfect collection plants and come in many different colors and shapes.
