Jade Pothos Plant Care

Posted by Alexander Holdinghausen on

Pothos 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 Jade Pothos is able to adapt to lower light but thrives in bright, indirect light year-round. Harsh, direct sunlight will scorch the leaves, while not enough light will cause the leaves to become discoloured and smaller in size.

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.

Humidity

Your Jade Pothos does best in a slightly more humid environment, such as a bathroom or kitchen. Brown leaf tips may indicate the air is too dry.

Temperature

Your Jade Pothos prefer temperatures of 15-25 degrees.

Food

Feed monthly or every other month in the spring and summer with a general-purpose indoor plant fertilizer. Before applying any fertilizer in any form make sure the soil is damp.

Toxicity

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

Additional Care

Feel free to trim your Jade Pothos regularly. Trim 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.
