Philodendron tenue belongs to the light-hungry philodendron, the plant strongly adapts to its environmental conditions. In a light culture the internodes and petioles are short and the leaves are slightly leathery compact, in a dark culture the petioles can grow up to 1m long, the leaves become much larger and are softer. This strong adaptation explains the wide distribution range and makes Philodendron tenue an optimal beginner plant or easy to cultivate species in any collection.
