It is easy enough and yes, it has a similar look to some green philodendrons, but I think the novelty factor makes it different, especially if you train it to spill over just one side of the plant so that one can always see the tuber. Also choose one with colourful leaves to contrast with the green of other creepers you may have in the area. Remember it likes height and can grow down readily to 6 feet plus (depending n the variety you choose). Just keep snipping and tidying up.
Of course too the glass can topple over so secure it nicely to the surface with some stationer's putty (we call it Prestick here), you will have the same or an equivalent anyway..
I would love to know how you get on if you do decide to go for it - do tell.
Cheers and all
