Also called the Sweetheart Plant, this is a pretty trailing plant with green, heart-shaped leaves with a high shine to them. There are also Philodendron varieties with beautiful yellow and green variegated leaves. Adaptable to most types of lighting conditions, this plant is a great starter plant. For maximum growth, put the plant in an area with a reasonable amount of indirect light and allow the soil to dry out between waterings. This is mildly toxic, so make sure to keep out of reach of pets and kids.
