Epipremnum aureum, commonly known as Pothos or Devil’s Ivy, is a popular indoor plant known for its attractive, marbled foliage and easy care requirements.
Pothos Marble Queen:
Light: Pothos Marble Queen plants thrive in bright, indirect light. They can tolerate lower light conditions, but for best growth and variegation of the leaves, place them in a spot where they receive moderate to bright, filtered sunlight.
Watering: Allow the top inch or two of the soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it’s essential to avoid keeping the soil constantly wet. The frequency of watering depends on various factors like the temperature, humidity, and the size of the plant, so it’s best to check the soil’s moisture level before watering.
Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix that retains some moisture but doesn’t become waterlogged. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and regular potting soil works well.
Humidity: Pothos Marble Queen plants enjoy higher humidity, but they can tolerate average household humidity levels. If you live in a dry climate or have low indoor humidity, consider misting the leaves occasionally or placing a humidifier nearby.
Temperature: Pothos plants prefer temperatures between 65°F to 85°F (18°C to 29°C). They are sensitive to cold drafts, so avoid placing them near doors or windows during the winter.
Fertilization: Fertilize your Pothos Marble Queen every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, liquid houseplant fertilizer. Reduce or stop fertilizing in the fall and winter when the plant’s growth slows down.
Toxicity: Keep in mind that Pothos plants are toxic if ingested, so be cautious if you have pets or small children.
Origins: Epipremnum aureum is native to the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific. It is a tropical vine that grows in the understory of rainforests, climbing up trees and other supports.
