Golden Pothos, 4" potted plant, Devil's Ivy, Epipremnum Aureum



Golden Pothos (Epipremnum Aureum) has bright swatches of golden yellow variegation mixed randomly across its dark green leaves. The relative amount of light versus green coloration varies from leaf to leaf and is affected by the amount of light the plant gets. If you prefer more green, keep the plant in lower light levels. Want more of the light variegated color? Keep your Golden Pothos in brighter light.

These starter plants are fully rooted and well-established in a 4" nursery pot. The larger plants will have at least 4 leaves per vine and show vibrant, new growth. They will grow out into long trailing vines ideal for hanging pots or growing up a trellis. If you keep them trimmed, Golden Pothos makes an excellent table top plant as well.

Like other Pothos (Epipremnum aureum) vines, the Golden Pothos is also called Devil's Ivy because it lives where many plants have difficulty surviving. It does well in the shadowy understory of its native tropical forests, and can survive infrequent watering. Even though, Pothos tolerates poor light and poor watering habits, it will grow faster and exhibit more variegation in the leaves if placed in brighter, but still indirect light and is watered reqularly.

The Golden Pothos is an excellent hanging plant. In the wild it grows as a vine climbing tree trunks or other handy surfaces. It can grow many meters long under optimum conditions. As it grows, it forms rooting nodes which can be clipped with a couple of leaves and replanted to form a new Golden Pothos plant. Often Pothos owners will replant a few of these cuttings along with the parent plant in a larger hanging pot to make a truly dazzling display of thick, trailing brightly variegated green foliage.

Although it's possible, the pothos is not known for its flowers and is generally prized for its beautiful foliage. Epipremnum aureum flowers, if you get them, look a bit like a peace lily in structure, but smaller and less colorful. Brighter light conditions and a good feeding schedule give the pothos its best chance to flower.

If your area, New Hampshire, or areas in between are experiencing temperatures below fifty degrees, please order a heat pack with your shipment to keep the Golden Pothos plant alive and healthy during shipping. The heat packs are cheap, just priced to cover our costs.
