The “Pearls and Jade” Pothos (Epipremnum aureum) is a lovely houseplant with oblong and variegated foliage in some cases. It ranks among plant lovers’ favourite houseplants since it is easy to care for and can be trained to grow as you wish.

The Pothos appreciates good indirect light but can also evolve in medium to low light conditions. It will grow more slowly in such cases but will be healthy all the same. It can also be placed under fluorescent lighting which makes it an ideal plant for any office space.

MAINTENANCE

When set in a luminous environment, the Pothos should be watered when the first third of its soil is dry. Water it at half pot if placed in medium or low light. A good way of knowing if it needs a drink is the texture of the foliage: if the leaves wilt, your plant is thirsty.

It is best to shorten the vines twice or three times per year; you can do so by simply pinching them with your fingers. If they grow too long, the plant will strip at the base. The Pothos is also perfect for cuttings, to split and share.

When you take possession of your plant, make sure you assess its watering needs. Before you give it a drink the first time, check the soil’s moisture level to verify whether or not it is moist near the surface. It is best to aerate the soil before the initial watering since it is often compacted to avoid shifting during transit. This also allows it to breathe and release moisture.

Rotate your plant periodically in order to encourage an even growth. Cleaning the leaves regularly will stimulate proper photosynthesis. As you wipe the foliage, inspect the leaves on either side to make sure there are no pests.
