Hey, I found this philodendron in a lokal supermarket. I think it has a weird varigation? There are 2 plants in the pot. The big one looks like a Rojo Congo or Red Emerald? But some of the older leafes have green stripes on the leaf stems. The second one has white stripes on the new leafs like a birkin but the leaf stems are red and green and the undersite of the leafs have big green and red spots. If someone knows what it is please help me :)
And sorry for my bad english I am from germany.

Greetings, welcome to the Forums

This does look like a somatic mutation from the original plant. If the mutation is stable enough to be maintained this could be a valuable plant, at least among obsessed Philodendrophiles. Is the original cultivar Philodendron x 'Imperial Red'?

Thank you for your answer :)
The plant has no tags it doesn't even say that it's a philodendron. There is a tiny baby plant that also has the red stripes and spots on the undersite. I think the mutation seems to be stable because all 3 have it.

It's a Birkin. It is an incredibly unstable mutation. It can flip-flop through all of the different patterns almost at will and may even change to something you haven't seen yet. Enjoy the anticipation and consternation of "what will it do next".
