The Golden Pothos is a member of the Araceae family and is native to Southeast Asia. This beautiful plant is easy to care for and is perfect for beginners or those who don't have a lot of time to devote to plant maintenance. Its heart-shaped leaves are a rich, glossy green with striking golden-yellow variegation, making it a great addition to any indoor garden, office, or living space.
Light: The Golden Pothos thrives in moderate to bright indirect light. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, as this can lead to scorching of the leaves. It can also tolerate low light conditions.
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 ensure the plant is not sitting in water. Check the soil moisture with your finger and water thoroughly when the topsoil feels dry to the touch.
Humidity: Pothos plants appreciate higher humidity levels, but they can adapt to average indoor humidity.
Temperature: The Golden Pothos prefers temperatures between 65°F to 85°F (18°C to 29°C). Avoid exposing it to cold drafts or sudden temperature fluctuations.
Soil: Use well-draining, lightweight potting soil to ensure proper water drainage. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite is suitable for the Golden Pothos.
Fertilizer: Feed your Golden Pothos with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 4 to 6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or stop fertilizing in the winter months when the plant's growth slows down.
