Sale price $12.50

Golden Pothos, also known as Epipremnum aureum:

  1. Appearance: The Golden Pothos is a popular and versatile houseplant appreciated for its vibrant foliage and easy-care nature. Its leaves are heart-shaped and waxy, with distinct variegation characterized by marbled patterns of yellow, green, and sometimes white. The coloration of the leaves can vary depending on light exposure and growing conditions.

  2. Size: Golden Pothos is known for its trailing or climbing growth habit, making it well-suited for hanging baskets, tall containers, or as a climber on support structures. When grown indoors, it can reach lengths of several feet, with its vines cascading gracefully.

  3. Growth Habit: The plant produces long, trailing stems that can grow vigorously under optimal conditions. It also readily sends out aerial roots, which help anchor it to surfaces and absorb moisture. With proper pruning, it can be trained to maintain a more compact and bushy shape.

  4. Light Requirements: Golden Pothos thrives in bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. However, its variegation may fade in low light, and it may exhibit slower growth. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves.

  5. Watering Needs: These plants prefer evenly moist soil but are adaptable and can tolerate occasional drying out between waterings. Allow the top inch or so of the soil to dry out before watering thoroughly. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's essential to avoid waterlogged conditions.

  6. Temperature and Humidity: Golden Pothos prefers temperatures between 65°F to 85°F (18°C to 29°C) and average indoor humidity levels. It can tolerate a wide range of humidity levels but benefits from occasional misting, especially in drier indoor environments.

  7. Maintenance: This plant is relatively low-maintenance. Regularly prune the vines to control its size and encourage bushier growth. Remove any yellowing or damaged leaves as they appear. Wiping the leaves with a damp cloth periodically helps keep them clean and free from dust.

  8. Toxicity: Golden Pothos is toxic to pets if ingested, so it's essential to keep it out of reach of cats, dogs, and other animals.

Overall, the Golden Pothos is a versatile and attractive houseplant that adds a pop of color and lush greenery to any indoor space. With its forgiving nature and ability to thrive in a variety of conditions, it's a popular choice for both beginner and experienced plant enthusiasts.
