She may have a royal name but she's far from a drama queen. She's a very easy care girl with gorgeous, glossy, rich green leaves (and if you're lucky, some have a speckling of little gold star-dust freckles). Very easy care and low-maintenance provided you're not an over-waterer.
Like many in the Philodendron family, she likes medium to bright indirect light. Not a sunbather, especially in summer, as direct light can burn her beautiful leaves and cause brown marks, but she'll handle a bit of direct sun in winter. She'll also handle lower light conditions like the ease-care girl she is, but growth may slow down. Like most of us, she prefers warm temperatures. Aim to keep her above about 12 degrees. Drafts aren't ideal. A light warm wind all good, but don't put her by an open door, or in the path of air from your air conditioning / heat pump.
Lightly, evenly moist - but not soggy. No feet wet please. Lower maintenance than many because the Philodendron Green Princess won't mind drying out a bit between watering, especially in winter, but over-watering is a no go. We feed monthly in Spring and Summer (a half dose of Groconut if you feed weekly, otherwise normal dose fortnightly). A regular drench when the top is dry is a good method for watering this girl. Just let that all drain out and stop dripping before returning her to her saucer or cover pot. Definitely need a pot with drainage holes for this girl.

Products that are able to be shipped will be packaged with protective insulation and covering in the smallest package possible. Plants will also be enclosed with damp sphagnum moss or similar to protect from dehydration and will be shipping without soil. We recommend paying for express postage for plant orders to minimise any risk of damage to the plant via post.
We can only facilitate delivery of non-shippable orders within the Perth metro area.

The arrival of your order, if posted, will then be subject to the postage service delivery time.
Orders containing shippable and non-shippable items checked out at the same time will be treated as one order, unless we are contacted to consider them otherwise, and are only able to be delivered to addresses within the 30km radius. If the address is outside this radius, the non-shippable products will be refunded and the remaining items in the order will be processed and shipped.
International orders are only able to be shipped if the whole order is shippable. If any items in the order are non-shippable, they will be removed and refunded, and the remainder will be shipped. We recognise that countries have varying quarantine restrictions and specific processes that may need to be adhered to relating to importing plants. We do not, however take responsibility for researching these restrictions and assume that the buyer is aware of these if they are applicable. We accept an order from another country as an indication by that buyer that the plants they have purchased are able to be shipped into that country, unless we are notified otherwise.
