Golden Pothos Plant Care

 

Prized for its low maintenance, the Golden Pothos is known for its heart-shaped green leaves with variegation in yellow and can grow several feet a year and provide a beautiful draping backdrop or corner piece for any low-to medium-light space. Its common name, Pothos, comes from the genus is was once classified under Pothos Aureus.


Sun

Medium to low indirect light; avoid windows as they amplify the sun's intensity and create heat that may damage the plant.

Water

Water every 2-3 weeks. We recommend adding clay drainage balls to the bottom of the pot; however, avoid overwatering.

Pro-Tip 

According to NASA's clean air study, the Pothos plant removes pollutants such as benzene, toluene, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, and xylene from the air.

Toxicity

Golden Pothos is slightly toxic to humans and animals if ingested.

General Plant Care

We recommend transplanting 2-3 years into a vessel 1-2 inches larger using a regular potting mix. Clean leaves with a damp paper towel every 1-2 weeks to aid photosynthesis and stimulate growth. Check leaves and stalks for pests while cleaning. If pests are found, remove them with a damp paper towel and use a mild organic pesticide in a spray bottle to coat the affected areas.
