Epipremnum aureum ‘Golden Pothos’
The Epipremnum aureum aka pothos plant are widely grown indoors as hanging baskets, trailing vines, or trained on moss poles. The Golden Pothos is known for its medium green streaked with golden-yellow variegated heart shaped leaves. Pothos are easy going and can take neglect, low light and poor watering practices. In their tropical environment, they grow up trees and as a ground cover. Pothos are very efficient at removing indoor pollutants such as benzene, xylene and formaldehyde.
Pothos are native to Southeast Asia to the western Pacific. They are one of the most popular indoor plants grown in North America.
The Golden Pothos prefer 2-3 hours of bright indirect light. The leaves should not receive too much direct light since that can burn the leaves and/or turn them a light shade of green. Best grown in an East or North facing windowsill. If you have South or West facing windows, place a couple of feet away from the window and or provide shade with a sheer curtain. Marble Queen pothos may lose some variegation if the light is too low. The variegation will be brighter if the plant has increased bright light.
Allow the soil to dry completely 2 inches down between waterings. Water thoroughly when dry and let the excess drain out the bottom of the planter. If your pothos receives too little water the leaves will begin to wilt and leaves near the base can often turn a bright yellow. If your pothos is overwatered, leaves can also turn yellow at the base.
Pothos are easily propagated by tip stem cuttings. Simply place a cut stem with two nodes in a glass of water and wait for it to root. Change the water weekly and plant in a small container with soil once it has a healthy root system. Fertilize: In Spring and summer, fertilize once a month with an organic houseplant fertilizer.
