I love philodendrons even though they’re common and not terribly interesting. They do well in low light and will happily forgive you if you forget to water them for a few weeks. They also vine out all over the place, which is so satisfying. I’ve killed almost every kind of house plant, but I have yet to kill a philodendron. Once I even tried to kill one! I wanted to replace it with a different plant, so I didn’t water it for at least a month. It just kept on living. Finally I threw it out still alive—horrible, I know. If you think you can’t keep house plants alive, I challenge you to kill a philodendron.
