Epipremnum Aureum Care
Low light to bright light. No direct sun, which will burn foliage. Although pothos will tolerate low light, it will have more leaves and better variegation if kept in bright light. Long spaces between leaves indicate pothos is not getting enough sunlight. This plant thrives under fluorescent light, making it an ideal office plant.
Allow the top 1 in (2.5 cm) of soil to dry between waterings. Use a pot with a drainage hole to prevent soggy soil. Overwatering will cause leaves to turn yellow and fall off.
Average room (around 40% relative humidity) or higher. Brown leaf tips are caused by dry air. Discover easy ways to raise the humidity for your house plants.
Good-quality all-purpose potting mix.
Stem tip cuttings root easily in water or moist perlite or vermiculite. Cut a 4-6-inch stem tip with a couple leaves attached. Cut just below a node (a place where a leaf is attached to the stem) because the node contains cells that will grow roots. It takes at least 4 weeks to root.
You should be careful when handling the plant, as with all the aroids. The juice of these plants contain oxalate crystals, which when chewed can lead to pain and irritation of the lips, mouth and tongue. In severe cases, they can cause breathing problems and swelling of the throat.
Feed every 2 weeks spring through fall with a balanced water-soluble fertilizer diluted by half. In winter, feed monthly.
