Hi Mike,
I have a few philodendrons growing quite nicely at home. Most of 
like quite a bit of bright light and can take direct sunlight 
for a 
period of time (couple of hours). Depending on the variety you 
have, (is 
it a small variety or a large one like the big split leaved 
kind?) you 
can make it grow quickly by keeping the soil moist (but not 
soggy!) and 
providing a bit of sunshine. you could try misting the plant 
once in a 
while and clean the leaves to help the plant respire. Good luck 
with it, 
may it grow and grow and eventually take over your house like 

Cheers Pearl.
