Epipremnum Aureum 'Golden Pothos'


The ‘Golden Pothos’ variety of Epipremnum aureum is a houseplant classic and a staple on desks and office windowsills. It’s an easy-to-propagate and extremely adaptable plant known for thriving even under standard fluorescent lighting. However, this is a ‘get what you give’ plant, meaning the more light and care you provide, the more impressive the growth and variegation will be. If given something to climb, the leaves can grow even larger. You’ll know this plant needs water when it starts to droop, but it will perk back up after a good drink. Water it less in the winter when its growth naturally slows down.
