Plant Care Guide
Grows more quickly in bright, indirect light but can tolerate low light as well. Avoid direct sunlight.
About once every 10-14 days. 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 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.
