No, not Philodendron Pink Princess! The Philodendron Pink Marble have white and pink tiny splashes on its leaves which makes it more unique than the Pink Princess. It requires similar care to other philodendron species, with a few specific considerations for its pink marble variation. Here are some care tips:

  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light for your Philodendron Pink Marble. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves. However, too little light can result in leggy growth and reduced variegation.

  2. Watering: Water your Philodendron Pink Marble when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure that the pot has proper drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot. Overwatering is a common issue with philodendrons, so it's better to underwater than overwater.

  3. Humidity: Philodendron Pink Marble prefers high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves regularly, placing a humidity tray filled with water and pebbles beneath the plant, or using a humidifier.

  4. Temperature: Maintain temperatures between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C). 

  5. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix with organic matter, such as peat moss or perlite. A typical houseplant potting mix or a mix formulated specifically for philodendrons will work well.

  6. Fertilization: Feed your Philodendron Pink Marble with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during the winter months when growth slows down.

  7. Pruning: Regularly remove any yellowing or damaged leaves to maintain the plant's health and appearance. You can also prune leggy stems to encourage bushier growth.

  8. Support: As the plant grows, provide a moss pole or trellis for support, especially if you want it to climb.

  9. Propagation: Philodendron Pink Marble can be propagated through stem cuttings. Simply cut a healthy stem below a node and place it in water or moist soil until roots develop.

  10. Pests and diseases: Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests such as spider mites, aphids, and mealybugs. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Ensure good air circulation around the plant to prevent fungal diseases.

By following these care tips, you can enjoy a healthy and thriving Philodendron Pink Marble plant in your home.
