The plant seen in the photo is the plant you will get when purchasing from this listing
This plant is seriously gorgeous! And it has magic morphing abilities!
Well, kind of... As this plant matures the leaves completely change shape AND texture! They go from a gorgeous lil heart shape with velvet soft to the touch texture to this great big elongated arrow shaped leaf, that isn't velvety but more of a leathery texture?! Like, wha?! How incredible?!
This plant is truly special and will forever be a show stopper, regardless of how mature it is!
Oh!!! Also, did we mentiont the red backs? Yeah... red backs to the leaves, seriously we're in love with this plant - can you tell by the enthusiasm in this description?!
This Philodendron loves airy soil.
It loves high humidity, between 60%-90% is ideal!
Philodendrons do not like to dry out completely between waterings, but also do not like soggy feet! Gotta find the right balance for your environment.
The soil our plants arrive to you in has been specifically created for them!
We mix all of our soil and therefore you do not need to worry about repotting for a good while.
We certainly do not recommend repotting straight away, your new plant needs time to arrive and settle into your home, its new environment. Repotting straight away can cause a great deal of stress to the plant, please wait at least two weeks after arrival before repotting your plant.
All of our plants arrive in eco friendly plant pots.
We currenlty use two different types of pots, your plant will arrival in either a coco coir pot or a rice husk pot.
Both pots are biodegradable and can be reused. Once the pot has reached the end of its life they can be put into your compost bin!
How long have we had this plant?
Here at Perky Plants, we want to be open and honest about how long our plants are with us before they move on.
We keep all of our plants for atleast 4 weeks after they arrive with us.
This gives the plant time to settle into life in the UK, to settle into its new pot and substrate, to acclimate to a similar environment it will be in once it arrives with you.
Some plants hang out here with us for longer than 4 weeks, if a plant isnt ready to move on we're not going list it on our site!
This Philodendron Lupinum has been with us since early March and we believe it is ready to go off and start settling into its new home with you!
