Philodendron 'Pink princess' seems to be one of the plant community's favourite variegted Phiodendrons. It is a slow-growing, scandent hybrid philodendron which fatures colorful, variegated foliage and an upright, vining habit. Leaf blades are cordate,dark purplish-green with contrasting pink variegation. The pink coloration is variable, emerging as large splotches, small streaks, or occasionally an entire leaf.
These plants grow much better in low-light conditions and can suffer if exposed to bright light (sunglight or artificial plant light).
From the Modern Latin genus name Philodendron (Schott, 1830), from Greek philodendron, neuter of philodendros "loving trees," from philo- "loving" (see philo-) + dendron "tree" (from PIE *der-drew-, from root *deru- "to be firm, solid, steadfast," also forming words for "wood, tree"). The plant so called because it clings to trees.
