Commonly called in many households as the Pothos or Devils Ivy, The Epipremnum Aureum is native to Southeast Asia and is loved by so many because of how easy it is to care for them as an indoor plant. They come in so many varieties, everything from solid green and bright colors like the Neon Pothos to variegated with cream, white or yellow like the Golden Pothos, N'Joy or Marble Queen Pothos.
Lighting: They prefer bright indirect light, but can also thrive in low to medium light. The amount of light yo provide will factor in how fast your Pothos grow and how big the leaves get, but be careful to not expose your Pothos in direct sunlight as the leaves will burn quickly.
Watering: I normally allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Depending on the potting mixture, the size of the plant and the potting container, when and how often to water will vary. My rule of thumb is if the soil is completely dry, and the pot feels light, then it's time to water my Pothos. Always make sure you allow the water to drain through when watering.
Potting Mixture: My Pothos does well in your average regular potting soil that you can get at your local garden center or big box store. I usually will add some cacti soil and perlite or pumice to for extra drainage.
Humidity: They do not require a high humid environment to thrive. They do well in regular room humidity.
I love Pothos and want to collect them all. The most common ones are: Golden Pothos, Marble Queen Pothos, Neon Pothos, and N'joy Pothos. Others like the Manjula Pothos or Cebu Blue Pothos are a little bit more uncommon and harder to find based on where you're located.
Here is a video describing how I care and propagate my Pothos. Not only are they one of the easiest houseplants to care for, but they are also very easy to propagate.
In this video I share how I repotted my Pothos. My Golden Pothos I decided to stake up on a moss pole, while the Neon Pothos I left it trailing down.
