I have read that pea aphids are often found on many species of legumes. I was wondering if they would only be able to survive on these plants, or if they could survive on any plant (like a philodendron for example). Does anyone know anything about what pea aphids will feed on?

Pea aphids only eat legumes as far as I know. Growing some pea plants for them isn't that hard, they grow way faster than philodendrons.
