I sent her some pictures of plants I liked.

I told Estela that we have a history of systematically neglecting our plants, and so they die, and so we needed to factor in easy parenting when choosing our plant. I was told I had the wrong attitude.
We decided on the philodendron. She said it would be the most resilient. I was expecting a plant to be annoying expensive, but it turned out to be far better than expected. A McMassive, 7+ foot tall philodendron was going to run me about $300.
I asked for the plant to be potted in a nice looking basket, like the one above. She didn't have what I wanted, so I ordered the Basay Basket from Crate & Barrel.

And if all goes according to plan, sometime next week we'll have a lovely plant in the living room.
It's scheduled to go here...
|Estela would correct me here and say "It's not a tree. It's a plant."|
I cannot understate how much it bothers my father that the A/C vent is white. It should be the same color as the walls, I know. I'm mentally working up to fixing it. Or I'll put a plant in front of it and hope to eliminate that issue.
So, what do you think of the plants? Any advice for not killing them?
