Epipremnum aureum has large, glossy green leaves with irregular cream and yellow streaks and blotches that are valued for their air-purifying qualities. Golden Pothos also tolerates lower light levels without losing its variegation and looks best displayed as a hanging plant.
Other common names include Devils Ivy, Ivy Arum and Ceylon Creeper. Latin synonyms are Epipremnum pinnatum Aureum (mainly US and Canada), Scindapsus aureus (Europe) or Phaphidophora aureu (previous botanical name).
Chop and Pot! Pothos plants are one of the easiest plants to propagate. If you cut back your plant, keep the cuttings in water and soon they will grow new roots, which can then be planted.
Will Wane When Wet! These plants don’t like too much water. If you notice leaves yellowing, tipping or leaf spotting, make sure the soil is dry to the touch before watering again.
Iron out the Kinks! This plant’s leaves will curl when its thirsty. A little water will go a long way, however if you are watering and the plant still curls, it could be a root rot issue.
