It loves sun about the same as an elephant ear, so if you like elephant ears, this is a great way to break into philodendrons! Bonus points for being gorgeous. Sleek, deep green leaves of a pleasant shape, new growths are a delicate and vibrant green, and stems sometimes have a pinkish blush. One of my favorites!
