Philodendron Cordatum is another great plant for beginners - it's pretty forgiving as far as houseplants go, and so long as they get enough sun and water, they'll grow long trailing stems (and keep on growing and growing!). They make great plants for shelves and hanging baskets.
Light: This plant loves bright, indirect sunlight. but is also tolerant of partial shade. If one side of the plant receives more light than the other, be sure to rotate it so leaves do not migrate to one side of the plant.
Soil: Any well draining potting soil will do.
Humidity: A fan of humidity. Keep near a humidifier or mist often.
Fertilizer: Fertilize monthly with a water soluble houseplant fertilizer throughout growing season.
