How To Care For Your Pothos Plant
Why Choose Pothos? Pothos are one of the most popular houseplants. Besides being easy to maintain, they’re easy to find, and buying one will barely put a dent in your wallet. If you want to add a lush tropical vibe to your home, Pothos vines will do just that.
How To Use Pothos Pothos are trailing plants and great to use in hanging containers. Used at the base of a floor plant in a large container, Pothos look good and do well as under plantings. They disguise a grow pot beautifully so think of them as an alternative to moss!
There are many types of Pothos to choose from; Golden Pothos, Marble Queen Pothos, Jade Pothos, Neon Pothos, Blue Pothos, and so much more.
What Type of Exposure? Moderate light (bright natural light) is the sweet spot for Pothos. They’ll tolerate low light conditions but won’t grow much at all. Just remember, low light isn’t no light. In low light conditions, a Golden Pothos (as well as the other variegated ones) will lose its variegation and revert to solid green.
Pothos aren’t fussy at all when it comes to the mix they’re planted in. I always use a good quality organic potting soil which is peat based, well nourished and drains well.
Garden soil is way too heavy for houseplants. Make sure whatever mix you buy says it’s formulated for houseplants somewhere on the bag.
