Brasil is one of the best beginner plants of all time. Beautiful climbing indoor plant with big dark-green and splashed with yellow heart-shaped leaves.

Light: Brasil tolerates low light but prefers bright, indirect illumination. East- and west-facing windows are generally excellent locations.

Soil: well-draining compost

Water: Water thoroughly and allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Keep soil barely moist in winter. Yellow leaves are a symptom of overwatering. Provide good drainage. 

Fertilizer: Fertilize regularly during the growing season.

 Humidity: Its tolerance of dry air indoors but like most tropicals they do appreciate higher humidity.

Your plant will benefit from occasional pruning, which helps it to branch out and become fuller. Spring is the best time to cut it back. Use sharp pruners to avoid tearing the stems.
