When mature, the leaves of the plant changes in shape and size, up to a length of 50 cm. As a young plant the leaves are heart shaped and have a maroon backside.

Philodendron lupinum originates from subtropical and humid forests of Brazil. Make sure that temperatures always stay between 15 and 30 degrees Celsius. Also try to maintain humidity above 70 percent for optimal growth. Let the soil of Philodendron lupinum never dry out completely but prevent soggy conditions. Especially with young plants provide a fast draining and airy soil, specialized orchid mixes or soil for Anthuriums are good options. When this plant is not structurally supported, it develops a hanging growing habit. This plant manages well in shade conditions, but some bright indirect light stimulates more vigorous growth. Try to avoid direct sunlight or that will leave burn marks the leaves. Fertilize the plant with half the recommended strength of fertilizer for green plants in spring and summer.
