Think of this variety of Pothos like it’s on steroids! Similar to the Golden Pothos in coloring, this species simply has a lot more of those beautiful golden marks on leaves that have the ability to grow much larger than the epipremnum you’ll usually find at the nursery. In the wild they can rival that of the Monstera Deliciosa, but in homes we’re usually thrilled to see them reach 6” to a foot across, especially when given something to climb up! Care is the same as for other Pothos, though we recommend keeping it somewhere brighter to avoid losing any variegation and ensuring new leaves are vibrant and healthy!
