Classic Pothos

Pothos Epipremnum aureum

Available in all sizes.

The Pothos is famously known to be one of the easiest plants to care for, making it ideal for first-timers or gifts. If you don't already have one of these in your arsenal, make room!

The golden cultivar is most recognizable and has dark green leaves with marbling of yellow and lighter greens.

In the wild, they are skilled climbers and can scale entire trees with their arial roots. In the home they are most commonly seen in a hanging basket or draping over a shelf.

Watering - Allow your plant to dry out about halfway before giving it a thorough watering. The leaves loose a bit of luster when they're thirsty, but will quickly perk back up!

Sunshine - Epipremnum are extremely adaptable in different lightings, but are most comfortable in bright indirect light as they are used to being dappled by tree foliage.

Planter - These plants like a lot of airflow to the roots, so they do well in something porous with good drainage. Check out these terra cotta pots here.
