Philodendron

Philodendron_ spp.

Most philodendrons are vines that clamber in trees in their native tropical habitat, thus the common name, which translates as "tree-lover." Most form aerial roots, which in the wild help them climb trees, and in your home can be put to use to help them climb a plant pole. They grow well in most indoor light conditions at normal room temperature or slightly warmer. Allow the soil surface to dry to the touch between waterings.
