Golden Pothos in Large Croix CupEpipremnum aureum
[ Height: 10" - 11" | Pot Size: 5" - 6" ]
A Pothos is planted in a speckled ceramic pot. Pothos produce heart-shaped leaves on vines that can trail many feet. Vine length can be controlled by periodic pruning. Place in bright indirect light for faster growth, but plants will also tolerate low light levels. Check the soil for dampness once a week. If dry, add about a half of a cup of water, keeping in mind that any excess will build up in the bottom and should be avoided. Also avoid cold drafts for best results.

Plant Care Guide
Grows more quickly in bright, indirect light but can tolerate low light as well. Avoid direct sunlight. New growth may not be variegated in low light.
Allow top few inches of soil to dry out before watering thoroughly. Water less often in winter.
Level of Care
Easy! Just avoid direct sunlight and cold temperatures.
The NASA Clean Air Study has ranked the Golden Pothos as one of the most efficient houseplants that remove formaldehyde, benzene, xylene, and toluene from the air we breathe.
Feed with a mild liquid, indoor plant fertilizer about 1-2 times a month during the growing season. Do not fertilize in winter.
Prefers warm conditions above 60°F. Keep away from drafty windows and air conditioners.
A peaty All-Purpose potting soil with good drainage works best.
Pruning & Propagation
Prune damaged or yellow leaves by cutting to the leaf node. To propagate, place stems of vine cuttings in water and roots should form within a week or so. Replant in soil.
Sorry! Plant contains very sharp calcium oxalate crystals that, when eaten, cause mouth and digestion irritation and possibly more serious problems.
