Marble Queen 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 Marble Queen Pothos can survive in low light, but grows faster in medium to bright indirect light. The variegation will be more pronounced in higher 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.

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 Marble Queen prefers average to warm temperatures between 15-25 degrees.

Food

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

Toxicity

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

Additional Care

Trim any dead, discolored, damaged, or diseased leaves and stems as they occur. Use clean, sharp scissors to avoid tearing or bruising the stems. If you wish to keep your plant full and bushy, trim the longer vines every few months.
