Philodendron plants are either vining or mounding in habit.  Pink Princess is a vining Philodendron and you'll need to provide bamboo stakes, moss posts, a wood board, or some kind of trellis to support the plant for best results.  Leaves will get bigger and bigger if you provide a good structure that the aerial roots can attach to.

Highly variegated plants like Pink Princess need brighter light in order to bring out variegation.  Never place far from a window.  

If your plant is putting out too many leaves that lack the beautiful pink variegation, trim your vine back to a leaf that exhibits good, balanced variegation and the resulting new growth may have better variegation.
Water when the top inch or two of the soil is dry.

Use a well-drained potting mix.
Like any aroid, this plant prefers chunky potting mixes that provide plenty of air circulation to the root system.  Amending your all-purpose potting mix with perlite and orchid bark is one way to accomplish this.
