How to Care for a Marble Queen Pothos (Epipremnum Aureum)
Light: Pothos plants prefer indirect sunlight. Direct sunlight in the morning and afternoons is okay as the light is less harsh. If your room has a window you will be fine, although a pothos will grow faster the brighter the room is. Moving it from low light to bright light may shock it, so you should gradually introduce it if you plan on changing its light source.
Water: They prefer to dry out between waterings. Press your finger about an inch into the soil and if it is damp, do not water it. If it is dry it is time to water. In the summer you will water twice as much as the winter waterings.
Soil: Well-draining potting mix will let a pothos thrive.
Humidity: The average humidity in a house is great
Marble Queen Pothos Information
Pothos plants, also known as Epipremnum aureum, is a tropical vine native to French Polynesia. Like other related aroids, the leaves of a pothos plant will change in shape with age.
Like any vining plant, a pothos will naturally crawl along the ground, or climb up a moss pole, tree, or anything it can get a leaf on. Considered to be in the monstera subfamily, these plants can grow to incredible sizes! A mature pothos plant can grow to be longer than 3 feet. They have the ability to spontaneously generate variegation, which has led to several variations we know and love, such as – marble, classic jade, and neon.
In colder climates, house plant lovers will grow Marble Pothos in hanging baskets, or as an indoor potted plant with a peat moss pole to climb up and sprawl out. Grow them indoors for air purifying benefits!
Pothos plants are non-ingestible for pets and humans, so please make sure your pets are not nibbling on leaves.
