Golden Pothos (Epipremnum aureum), also known as Devil's Ivy, is a popular and easy-to-care-for houseplant with heart-shaped, variegated leaves. This trailing vine is known for its air-purifying qualities and ability to adapt to various light conditions, making it an ideal choice for indoor environments.

Golden Pothos Care Instructions:

  1. Light: Place your Golden Pothos in a location with bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions, but the variegation on the leaves may become less pronounced. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Water: Allow the top 1-2 inches of soil to dry out between waterings. Water your Golden Pothos thoroughly until it drains from the bottom of the pot, then allow excess water to drain completely. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot.

  3. Humidity: Golden Pothos can tolerate average indoor humidity levels, but it will appreciate a boost in humidity, especially during dry winter months. To increase humidity, place a tray filled with water and pebbles underneath the pot, mist the leaves occasionally, or use a humidifier.

  4. Temperature: Maintain a temperature range of 65-85°F (18-29°C) for optimal growth. Golden Pothos can tolerate a range of temperatures but avoid exposing it to temperatures below 50°F (10°C) or sudden temperature changes.

  5. Fertilizer: Feed your Golden Pothos with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Use a half-strength solution to avoid over-fertilizing. Reduce feeding to once every 2-3 months during fall and winter.

  6. Pruning: Prune your Golden Pothos as needed to maintain its shape and size. Remove any yellow or brown leaves and trim the tips if they become damaged. You can also pinch back the growing tips to encourage bushier growth.

  7. Repotting: Repot your Golden Pothos every 2-3 years or when the roots outgrow the pot. Choose a well-draining potting mix and a pot that is 1-2 inches larger in diameter than the current one. Be gentle when handling the roots, and water the plant thoroughly after repotting.

Pet-friendly or toxic to pets?

According to the ASPCA, Golden Pothos (Epipremnum aureum) is toxic to cats and dogs. The plant contains insoluble calcium oxalates, which can cause oral irritation, excessive drooling, vomiting, and difficulty swallowing if ingested by pets. Keep Golden Pothos out of reach of pets, and consider choosing a different plant if you have pets prone to chewing on plants. If you have concerns about your pet's health, contact your veterinarian.
