Philodendron Pink Princess prefers loose, well-draining soil rich in organic matter. These plants grow best in consistently moist soil so choose a soil mix that retains plenty of soil moisture, but should not remain soggy. An Aroid potting mix is perfect for potting your Pink Princess.
The perfect soil mix for Philodendron Pink Princess drains quickly, holds enough moisture and is rich in nutrients to provide the rampant grower with all the nutrients it needs to grow healthily.
Like other Aroids such as Monstera Deliciosa or Pothos, Philodendron prefers soil that is full of natural nutrients and beneficial soil microorganisms.
Philodendron erubescens is native to the rainforests of South America, where it grows on the humus-rich forest floor. The rainforest floor always holds plenty of water, but the soil is never too moist.
You need to replicate such conditions to help your Pink Princess plant thrive in your home or garden.
A quick fix to achieve optimal soil conditions is to purchase an Aroid potting mix from your plant supply store.
But just buying and using a potting mix takes all the fun out of caring for such a precious plant.
If you have the time, it’s a great idea to prepare your custom Pink Princess potting mix at home.
Additionally, a DIY custom soil mix is a much cheaper option and allows you to prepare perfect soil combinations for all your houseplants.
