A guide to Pothos Aureum care


Pothos Aureum (Epipremnum aureum), also known as Golden Pothos or Devil's Ivy, is a popular houseplant known for its trailing vines and variegated green and yellow leaves. It is easy to care for and can tolerate a variety of conditions. In this guide, we'll walk you through the best practices for caring for your Pothos Aureum.

  1. Light: Pothos Aureum thrives in bright, indirect light but can also tolerate low light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, as this can burn the leaves.

  2. Water: Water your Pothos Aureum when the top inch of soil is dry to the touch. Water thoroughly until water drains out of the bottom of the pot, then remove any excess water from the saucer. Avoid letting the plant sit in water, as this can cause root rot.

  3. Humidity: Pothos Aureum prefers a humid environment but can tolerate normal indoor humidity levels. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves with water or placing a humidifier near the plant.

  4. Temperature: Pothos Aureum prefers temperatures between 65-85°F (18-29°C) but can tolerate temperatures as low as 50°F (10°C). Avoid exposing the plant to cold drafts or extreme temperature fluctuations.

  5. Soil: Pothos Aureum thrives in well-draining soil that is rich in nutrients. Use a potting mix that contains peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite for best results.

  6. Fertilizer: Feed your Pothos Aureum with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every two weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Dilute the fertilizer to half strength to avoid burning the roots.

  7. Pruning: Regular pruning can help promote bushy growth and prevent the plant from becoming too leggy. Use clean, sharp scissors to trim the plant back as needed.

  8. Propagation: Pothos Aureum is easy to propagate through stem cuttings. Simply cut a 4-6 inch stem from the parent plant, remove the bottom leaves, and place the stem in water or soil to root.

In summary, caring for Pothos Aureum involves providing the right light, water, humidity, temperature, soil, fertilizer, pruning, and propagation. With the right care, your Pothos Aureum will thrive and add beauty to your home for years to come.
