Golden Pothos

Plant Care Instructions*


The Golden Pothos is known for its heart-shaped green leaves with variegation in yellow. In good indoor conditions, you can expect the Golden Pothos to trail to 10 feet long. The Pothos is particularly fitting for indoor settings because it is able to filter the air.

Plant Care*:

A brightly lit spot without direct sunshine is suggested. A small amount of morning sun is not a problem, and will actually help Pothos grow well. 

Pothos do best when the first 1/4" - 1/2" of soil is allowed to dry out. We suggest watering once a week. You do not want to over-water, which can lead to root rot. Under-watering is not generally an issue for Pothos, as they will wilt when they are too dry, but bounce right back when given a drink.

Any high quality, natural potting soil will work very well. Drainage is suggested for Pothos, to prevent them from becoming water-logged and rotting. Peat-based soils, mixed with perlite is also a great suggestion. Some people have actually used a Cactus or Succulent blend for Pothos with great results.

If you feel the need to, you can use a balanced houseplant fertilizer once a month, or every other week in the summer. Fertilizing is only truly necessary if the soil conditions are poor.

* Standard care recommendations - you may need to adjust based on your home or office environment.
