Pothos (Epipremnum aureum; family auraceae) is a hardy epiphyte with heart-shaped leaves that varies in color and size. I am of the personal opinion that Pothos, which originates in Solomon Islands, is ideal for beginners; it is easy to grow, prune, and propagate, and its hardiness is forgiving for those so-called ‘black thumbs.’ Pothos can survive in high and low light settings; however, for best results, place in an area that has high or medium indirect light. Water Pothos once a week, but don’t be afraid to stick your finger in the soil before you water. If the soul is dry, feel fry to evenly water, but if the soil is wet, leave the plant alone until the next week (unless you want a bad case of stinky root-rot)! When cascading Pothos vines become too long (unless you want to string them across your cubicle), trim them at the preferred node, and place the vines in a glass of water to watch them develop into a new rooted plant. If an older Pothos starts to lose color, try adding root stimulant (such as Dr. Q’s Plant Tonic) to your bucket water. Root stimulant contains vital minerals and nutrients for your houseplant, but will not burn the leaves as is common with ordinary fertilizers.
