On the Sill | Pothos

Pothos - Epipremnum aureum

This plant is native to Mo'orea in the society islands of Polynesia. The species is a popular houseplant in temperate regions and is in the Araceae family.

LIGHT- These guys are easy keepers and do well in bright-indirect light as well as low-light conditions.

WATER- As a general rule, you should water your pothos once a week in warmer months and once every two weeks in colder months. Allow the soil to dry out in between watering and expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in low light conditions.

PRUNING - You can cut back pothos as much or as little as you want. A harder pruning will force new growth at the base of the plant and result in a bushier plant down the road. Prune by cutting the vine 1/4" above each leaf. The point where the leaf meets the vine is called a node, and your plant will send out a new vine in that area after you've pruned.

TOXICITY - Pothos can cause irritation to lips and mouth and cause vomiting if ingested. Keep these guys away from your pets.
