Description

The Pothos is one of the most popular houseplants, not least because it is surprisingly undemanding. Native to the Pacific archipelago of the Solomon Islands, this aroid has been distributed in several cultivars with differently coloured and marked leaves, also as a garden plant in the tropics and subtropics. The most common form in cultivation is one with irregular yellow markings on a dark green background. Like many climbing plants, Epipremnum aureum has a juvenile form and a different-looking adult form, and only in the latter does it flower and fruit. The stems are then much thicker, the leaves large and slashed like a Monstera. In the room and terrarium, however, it usually remains in the juvenile form. The shoots grow several metres long and branch little. Actually, the Pothos is an adhesive root climber, but not under dry indoor conditions, you then have to attach it to the support. Otherwise it also grows hanging and creeping on the ground.

Epipremnum aureum grows in pretty much any loose soil that should neither dry out nor become waterlogged. Likewise, Pothos thrives in hydroponics, the roots can simply hang in the water. When the plant has grown in, it can be given a houseplant fertiliser. Although the plant originates from the tropical rainforest, it tolerates dry air. It still grows in very little light, but becomes stronger in a bright position without full sun. Temperatures are best at least 20 °C and should not fall below 15 °C for a long time. In a moist environment the roots attach themselves to the support, otherwise the shoots must be attached where they are to climb. Propagate by head cuttings and partial cuttings; stems lying on the ground will take root at the nodes.

Epipremnum aureum is a robust terrarium plant, both in rainforest and drier terrariums. It can be used climbing, hanging or as a ground cover.
