Neon Pothos - (Epipremnum aureum) - 4 inch pot
Neon Pothos is just as easy to grow as its relative, golden pothos (Epipremnum aureum). Keep it warm and take care not to overwater this house plant.
Cold drafts and soggy soil are two things it won’t tolerate. This pothos variety has bright yellow-green leaves and is known for being super easy to maintain.
They love to grow long vines & hang all over the place. It enjoys bright indirect light and some humidity.
Pothos Growing Instructions
Pothos grows best in medium to bright indirect light. Not sure what that means? In a medium light spot, the plant will cast a soft or light shadow throughout the day. In bright light, the plant will have a strong shadow. Don't have a spot with natural light? No worries! Philodendron thrives under both fluorescent or LED lights, as well as the sun.
Like many other aroids (plants in the Epipremnum family), these are sensitive to overwatering. Be sure to let the top several inches of the potting mix dry before you water it again. This houseplant holds up reasonably well to drought, but looks and grows best if the potting mix isn't allowed to dry out.
A nice trick that we have found is submerging the plant, give it a great soak and than let it dry out for 7-10 days again.
Pothos likes average to above-average relative humidity levels. If your environment has particularly dry air, boost humidity by grouping your philodendron with other houseplants. Or place a small humidifier nearby. Or alternatively, grow it over a large pebble tray.
Fertilize your philodendron in spring and summer, if you wish. Use a fertilizer formulated for use on houseplants. Follow the directions on the product packaging and avoid using more than the instructions recommend. Too much fertilizer can cause root damage.
Pruning Pothos is not necessary except to remove any old or damaged leaves or if the longer arms become too difficult to manage.
