Plant parents can attest that there’s nothing better than showing off your houseplants on social media — the Instagram hashtag #plantsofinstagram has more than 12.8 million posts, while houseplant tour videos have become a popular addition to YouTube over the last few years.

This week, “Captain Marvel” actress Brie Larson showed off her love for her own houseplant in a different way — by wearing houseplant patterned pajamas.

“House plant cosplay. 🌱” Larson captioned a photo that shows her wearing her plant-themed pajamas while sitting on the windowsill next to her plant.

Her followers are left with the question: what type of houseplant is Larson’s green beauty? “This plant has characteristics of or is reminiscent of a Heartleaf Philodendron,” Alfred Palomares, Vice President of Merchandising and Resident Plant Dad at, told Apartment Therapy. “It is also known as a Sweetheart plant because of the heart-shaped leaves.”

A Heartleaf Philodendron is the ideal option for beginner plant parents or those who find it hard to carve out enough time to take care of one, as it’s got a reputation of being one of the easiest houseplants keep alive. Philodendrons, which are native to Tropical America, thrive in many different lighting conditions and don’t need much water. They’re also a super easy plant to propagate: simply cut or pinch off a branch, making sure at least a couple of nodes are present, and put the cutting directly into water or soil.

If you’d like to own your own pair of fancy foliage pajamas, Larson tagged Katie Kime, founder and CEO of her namesake print-focused brand. Reposting Larson’s exact photo to her own Instagram account, Kime captioned it: “Brie + Banana Leaves. @brielarson  #katiekimeprints.”

The nightwear in question, the Banana Leaves Pajama Set, features bright and colorful banana leaves printed on a white background. The top is a short-sleeved button-up shirt, while the bottoms are available in either shorts or pants.
