Epipremnum aureum: Neon Pothos in 6" Nursery Pot
Note: Plants and pots sold separately, unless stated otherwise.
A leafy plant for a beginner to plant-care or an inattentive owner. A staple of indoor plants.
The Pothos plant goes by many names, including the Money Plant, Devil's Ivy, Ceylon Creeper and Silver Vine. Pothos are a very popular indoor basic because they require minimal-care, and thrive in most conditions. These plants grow waxy green leaves that gain yellow splashes of variegation as they are exposed to light. Most commonly grown as a hanging plant, the Pothos Totem is a unique variation that wraps around a central stake, which tailors growth into a tall, elegant shape.
Not to be confused with the also-common Heartleaf Philodendron, Pothos have similar shaped leaves and care requirements, but are distinguished by their grooved stems and thicker leaves. These plants like to dry out between weekly waterings, and prefer a humid spot. Pothos tolerate most environments well though, and are okay with low-light and low humidity. However, the less light a Pothos receives, the less variegation its leaves will show. More green on its leaves will compensate for low light by increasing the area of photosynthesis.
Pothos plants are ubiquitous thanks to their easy-going nature, but that doesn’t mean they are boring! These plants grow lush, leafy vines that will add character to any space. The Pothos Totem is a great option for those looking for a new take on an old classic. Just the right size, this plant is for an owner who wants something dense and tall, but has minimal floor space.
