Philodendron Brasil
Philodendron hederaceum

He's 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 he is a good option for you.

Sunlight:Low to bright indirect light. Direct light may burn his leaves.

Water:Water around once a week.

Pets:Toxic to pets if ingested.

Size:About 15" tall and a pot size of 6".

Newbies:Forgiving and low maintenance—a perfect fit for new plant parents.

Pro-tip: To propagate, cut a piece at least 6″ long and place in water in bright light. Roots will grow in a week.
