This sun-loving plant is great for beginning indoor gardeners – easy to please, as well as propagate.
Pothos (Epipremnum aureum) also known as devil’s ivy and hunters robe, among other nicknames is a wonderful indoor garden addition.
I currently have three of these plants, and have found that they tend to be pretty easy-going.
Sometimes I’ll forget to water them, for an extra few days, but they don’t seem to care – they’ll droop a bit, but that serves as a reminder to give them a drink!
These plants aren’t very picky – they seem happiest when watered once a week, after their soil has dried out completely and enjoy sunlight and prefer that it isn’t too direct.
They grow like crazy – I find I need to clip mine occasionally.
If you were so inclined you could put these clippings in a glass jar and grow them there, where they look quite beautiful, and you can propagate them easily from there.
One of my pothos is a Marble Queen cultivar – it seems to be a little less forgiving, requiring more timely watering and less direct sunlight.
However it does grow more slowly, which means less frequent re-potting and/or clipping, and I think it’s even prettier than the others!
Pothos are great plants I would recommend them to beginner’s or any prospective plant owners looking for something a step up from a succulent.
