Humidity

Epipremnum Giganteum grow well in basic household humidity.

Light

While Epipremnum Giganteum do well in a variety of light conditions and can even tolerate low light, moderate indoor light is ideal. Outdoors they can be grown in shade to partial shade. Wherever you decide to display your Epipremnum Giganteum, just be sure to avoid direct sunlight. A highly variegated Epipremnum Giganteum may lose its variegation when placed in low-light conditions. Since only the green parts of the leaves can make energy, the leaves will compensate for the lack of light by turning more green. Pale leaves that turn yellowish in color could indicate that your plant is getting too much light.

Soil

Use a well-aerated, quick-draining potting soil; if the soil is heavy and doesn't drain well, add a little sand to the mix.

Temperature

Epipremnum Giganteum can tolerate moderate temperatures ranging from 55 - 85°F, however they are tropical plants and so prefer high humidity and temperatures of 70 - 90°F.

Watering

Keep soil moist, but be careful not to overwater. Easier said than done, right? Epipremnum Giganteum do best when their soil is allowed to dry out between waterings. To achieve this watering technique allow only the top two inches to dry being sure that the roots are still moist. If the leaves are wilting or turning brown, you should water the plant more often. If the leaves are yellow, you may be watering it too much. Excessive watering may cause root rot.

Fertilizing

Feed every other month with a plant food high in nitrogen diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength.

Propagation

Stem tip cuttings are a very simple way to propagate a Epipremnum Giganteum and all other Epipremnum varieties.
