Golden Pothos, or Epipremnum aureum, is among the most popular houseplants. This plant is so low-maintenance that it is also called Devil's ivy, indicating that it is almost impossible to kill.
Golden Pothos has beautiful pointed, heart-shaped green leaves with creamy white and yellow variegation. Native to the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific, this plant has trailing vines that look stunning in tall planters and hanging baskets.
Golden Pothos is very effective in air purifying. It eliminates odors, formaldehyde, benzene, and carbon monoxide in the air.
Golden Pothos prefers bright, indirect sunlight, but it also tolerates medium-light conditions. Too little light, however, can slow down its growth and makes it leggy. Low-light conditions also make this plant lose its variegation. Avoid harsh direct sun to prevent scorching leaves.
Golden Pothos does not like wet, water-logged soil, so drain well after each watering. Check the soil twice per week and only water when the top 1" of the soil is dry to the touch. Water more in brighter light conditions and water less when the plant is placed in a low-light spot.
The best soil for this plant is well-drained, porous potting soil. A mixture of houseplant potting soil with peat moss, vermiculite, or perlite is ideal for this plant.
This plant grows best in normal room temperatures (between 65°F-85°F). This plant does not grow well when the temperature drops below 50°F. Pothos thrives in normal indoor humidity, and it is recommended that you mist your plant and use a humidifier when the environment is too dry (humidity level falls below 50%).
This plant should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.
This plant contains calcium oxalate crystals within its leaves and stems that can be toxic to animals and humans, so keep it out of reach.

When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
