Pothos

Botanical Name: Epipremnum aureum

 

Common Name: Golden pothos, silver vine, money plant, devil’s vine

 

Mature Size: Can grow up to 30 feet indoors, trailing everywhere!

 

Sun Exposure: Partial indirect sun to shade while indoors. If you notice the leaves changing colors, place in a sunnier spot. 

 

Soil Type: Plant in standard indoor plant well-draining potting soil 

 

Water: Dry out between waterings then give a good soaking and allow excess water to drain out. Pothos will let you know when they need water as their leaves start to droop.

 

Temperature: Keep at standard room temperatures year around. 

 

Potting/Repotting: Repot in spring when you notice the plant to become pot bound. You can check the bottom of the pot for hardened root systems to know when to repot in a slightly larger pot. 

 

Fertilizer: Feed with a well-balanced fertilizer once a month in growing months and reduce frequency in winter months. 

 

Propagation: Easily propagated by taking stem cuttings and rooting them in water, as long as the section includes a node and at least two leaves. Once the root system is established, you can pot in soil. 

 

Toxicity: Poisonous! Keep away from animal and children.

 

Fact: Pothos are often confused with Philodendrons! The main difference in appearance would be that pothos have larger, waxy leaves.
