Pothos Plant Maintenance

Optimal Conditions: Bright, indirect light.
Tolerance: Can thrive in low light conditions, but growth may slow and variegated leaves might turn greener.

Frequency: Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry.
Amount: Ensure thorough watering and good drainage to avoid root rot. Self-watering pots help maintain consistent moisture levels, reducing the need for frequent watering.

Preferred Level: Average household humidity is sufficient.
Adjustment: In very dry environments, occasional misting can help.

Ideal Range: 65-85°F (18-29°C).
Sensitivity: Avoid temperatures below 50°F (10°C) and protect from cold drafts.


Type: Well-draining potting mix.
Enhancement: A mix designed for houseplants or adding perlite can improve drainage.

Frequency: Feed every 2-3 months with a balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer).
Note: Reduce or skip fertilization in fall and winter.

Purpose: Trim to control length and promote bushier growth.
Timing: Prune as needed throughout the year.

Common Issues: Rarely affected, but can occasionally attract spider mites, mealybugs, or scale.
Control: Treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil if necessary, and regularly inspect the plant.

Frequency: Every 1-2 years or when roots outgrow the pot.
Process: Use a pot that is one size larger and fresh potting mix.

Special Care
Propagation: Easily propagated through stem cuttings placed in water or directly in soil.
Support: If desired, provide a moss pole or trellis for climbing.

By following these maintenance guidelines, your Pothos will remain a vibrant, thriving addition to your home or office, effortlessly enhancing your space with its lush foliage.
