What other plant parents say
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!
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.
