Pelé is originally from a small subsection of the tropical rainforests of Brazil, but he quickly climbed his way to the top of American houseplant culture due to his ease of care, resilience, and indirect light flexibility. Talk about a hat trick. A few of his many other great talents include climbing, trailing, and ease of propagation. If you consider yourself a so-called "black thumb" then Pelé is a good option for you.
