A gorgeous if a bit dramatic philodendron. Will being to wilt if it has been too long since a watering but bounces back quickly once given water.

This is super easy to propagate (like most philodendrons) and I’ve found it to be pretty tolerant if you underwater it sometimes.

Love my philodendron Brasil. It’s a super easy plant that tells you when it wants to be watered - and it survives drought pretty well in my experience. It’s so much fun to see what each new leaf looks like since the variegation is always a little different!

Love this plant. Tolerant of short periods of neglect, and rewarding when you keep up with it. Fun design on leaves. Excited to set it up with a trellis in the spring.

Attractive variegation, glossy leaves, if you treat Brazil’s right they grow noticeably faster than other plants, very rewarding. Likes humidity, and medium light, easy to favor. 🥰

I wish it grew a little quicker, but I also have it hanging in a bathroom, so it doesn’t get a ton of light. I love the green and yellow leaves, it adds dimension to the plant. It’s pretty hardy and communicates when it needs water. Great for a first time plant parent.
