DESCRIPTION: Pothos are popular houseplants that are easy to grow. They come in many different colors, but this Golden Pothos is special because it has yellow stripes. All Pothos will trail, but they can also climb if you give them something to cling onto.

Golden Pathos Care

Water your plants deeply, but make sure to wait until the top inch or two dries out before watering again. In winter, water less often, letting the soil dry out completely up to 50%.
A Pothos plant needs medium to bright, indirect light. However, it can also survive in low light. Just take extra precautions when watering and don't expect the plant to grow very much.
This tropical epiphyte will appreciate a boost in humidity.
The Golden Pothos can adapt to average indoor temperatures, but may complain if it is too cold or too hot.
Pothos plants are mildly poisonous. If someone or a pet eats it, they might get mouth and stomach irritation and vomit.
To propagate a Pothos, you will need a piece of stem with a node or aerial root. This is easy to spot because it is a brown knob or full on wiggly root sticking out along the green stem. Try to cut just below this node and remove the lower leaves to ensure a clear stem before rooting. This cutting will grow roots directly in water and in just a few weeks! Once the roots are a couple inches long, you can pot up as you would with any plant.
