HOW TO CARE FOR
A perfect easy care houseplant for beginner plant parents, Pothos is one of the most popular plants. It is extremely forgiving in its care needs and will flourish in virtually any room of your home or office.
Pothos is considered one of the most effective indoor air purifiers for removing common toxins.
When should I water my Pothos?
To see if your Pothos needs water, stick your finger about an inch down into the soil. If the soil feels dry, water. If the soil feels moist, do not water. If you are unsure, check again in a few days.
Never mist your foliage. Misting leaves causes fungal issues and disease. The only plants that are okay to mist are ferns and carnivorous plants.
Pothos grow best in medium indirect light but tolerate low light areas well.
Pothos typically grow several feet long on cascading stems.
Pothos plants prefer moist, well-drained soil.
TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY
Pothos prefer average humidity and adapt well to normal household temperatures.
Pothos can be fertilized March through October with an all-purpose houseplant food. To help it grow optimally and evenly, occasionally dust the leaves, and rotate the pot by a ¼ turn once a month. Prune only when needed.
ARE POTHOS PET SAFE?
According to the ASPCA, Pothos are toxic to dogs and cats.
Yellowing leaves are often caused by over-watering. Drooping leaves are most often caused by low humidity levels and underwatering.
