Indoor House Plants That Won't Die On You - #11 Heart-Leaf Philodendron

Heart-Leaf Philodendron

Why you want it: This is a trailing indoor house plant that loves to make its way down from mantles or bookshelves. Its perky, dark green leaves come to a heart shape where they meet the stems.

How to care for it: This may be the quintessential easy indoor plant. It thrives in a range of lighting conditions from low to sunny, preferring indirect light. It does well anywhere close to standard room temperature. Let the surface of the soil dry between watering; it should not be constantly wet. 

Comment:  I have a pot of this growing on a shelf above my computer.  It started running across to a picture to its left.  It then climbed up the wall and has started running across the wall above the window.  Really beautiful.
