Devil’s ivy (Epipremnum aureum), also known as pothos should be one of the first plants on your wish list when starting out on your indoor plant growing journey. Then there are collection-worthy varieties like variegated white and green ‘Marble Queen’ and lime green ‘Neon’ that definitely deserve a place in your indoor jungle and look fab in any garden pot.
Thrives in bright, indirect light, but can tolerate medium to low indirect light. Not suited for intense, direct sun.
Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between watering. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.
Any humidity level will do, loves humid areas like bathrooms and kitchens.
Use good quality potting mix in your garden pots.
The Pothos is an easy-going plant and is generally pest-free. Treat pests as soon as they appear with weekly sprays of a natural pesticide like neem oil and regular wipe-down leaves of the plant.
Lack of growth, thin stems
Root bound, repot or prune
Yellow leaves, rotten brown base
Pothos can be irritating to cats, dogs, and humans if foliage is consumed. Best practice is always to keep houseplants out of reach of small children and pets
