Golden Pothos Plant Care

Posted by Alexander Holdinghausen on

APothos plants are known for their ease of care and durability. They are happy placed in a bright well-lit area, however, they can tolerate lower light. They are living air purifiers, removing common household toxins from the air, making it a healthy and beautiful addition for your space.

 

Light

Your Pothos is adaptable. It prefers bright, indirect light, but will tolerate medium and low light. They do not do well in direct sunlight since the sun will burn the foliage

Water

Water your Pothos when the top 50% of the soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer. Look out for yellow leaves, they are a symptom of too much water.

Humidity

This plant will do well in low humidity environments but will thrive with a bit more humidity. Brown leaf tips may indicate the air is too dry.

Temperature

Your Golden Pothos prefers average to warm temperatures, 15-25 degrees.p>

Food

Feed monthly or every other month in the spring and summer with a general-purpose indoor plant fertilizer.

Toxicity

Pothos are mildly toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and stomach irritation and possible vomiting.

Additional Care

Trim out any dead, discolored, damaged, or diseased leaves and stems as they occur. Use clean, sharp scissors to avoid tearing or bruising the stems. Snip stems just above a leaf node; new growth will emerge from this cut and trimming close to the node will also prevent an ugly stub at the site.
