Golden Pothos, or Epipremnum aureum, is among the most popular houseplants. This plant is so low-maintenance that it is also called Devil's ivy, indicating that it is almost impossible to kill.
Golden Pothos has beautiful pointed, heart-shaped green leaves with creamy white and yellow variegation. Native to the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific, this plant has trailing vines that look stunning in tall planters and hanging baskets.
Golden Pothos is very effective in air purifying. It eliminates odors, formaldehyde, benzene, and carbon monoxide in the air.
Golden Pothos prefers bright, indirect sunlight, but it also tolerates medium-light conditions. Too little light, however, can slow down its growth and makes it leggy. Low-light conditions also make this plant lose its variegation. Avoid harsh direct sun to prevent scorching leaves.
Golden Pothos does not like wet, water-logged soil, so drain well after each watering. Check the soil twice per week and only water when the top 1" of the soil is dry to the touch. Water more in brighter light conditions and water less when the plant is placed in a low-light spot.
The best soil for this plant is well-drained, porous potting soil. A mixture of houseplant potting soil with peat moss, vermiculite, or perlite is ideal for this plant.
This plant grows best in normal room temperatures (between 65°F-85°F). This plant does not grow well when the temperature drops below 50°F. Pothos thrives in normal indoor humidity, and it is recommended that you mist your plant and use a humidifier when the environment is too dry (humidity level falls below 50%).
This plant should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.
This plant contains calcium oxalate crystals within its leaves and stems that can be toxic to animals and humans, so keep it out of reach.

Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered
light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do
NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour
off any excess water after a few minutes.
The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot
area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended
periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
