Golden Pothos

English name:

Golden Pothos

Latin name:

Epipremnum Aureum

About me:

I have large glossy, green leaves that curve outwards and finish in a point. You can tell I'm a golden pothos because my markings are yellow.

Useful to know:

Origin

French Polynesia.

Height/Growth

I'm a speedy grower and can reach as long as 2m. Trim me to keep me under control or embrace the jungle-look and let me flow.

Light

I like medium light; not too bright but not too shady either.

Water

Water me when I'm drying out, I don't like too much water.

Temperature

I'm pretty easy going when it comes to temperature - anything over 10 °C is fine.

Feeding

Give me some weak, all-purpose fertiliser during Summer.

Grooming

Just give my leaves a wipe if dust builds up, so I can breathe properly.

Care

If I'm getting too long or a bit straggly, take sharp shears and give me a trim.

Toxicity

Keep me away from pets and children.

Fact
