With its cascading foliage and fast growth, the Neon Pothos (Epipremnum aureum) retains the low-maintenance benefits of a Pothos with the added benefit of stunning foliage. This vining plant has heart-shaped leaves in a shocking chartreuse color, making it pop both alone and when grouped with other plants. Thriving in average household temperatures and humidity and able to tolerate medium to bright light, this Pothos variety is a must-have.
Best Locations For Growing Neon Pothos
Like other Pothos, the Neon Pothos is fast growing, benefitting the most from bright indirect light but also growing just fine in the interior of a bright room. Place this plant on a bookshelf for a pop of color, hang it from a bedroom corner, or let it trail across a kitchen counter. The Neon Pothos is often added into planters, bringing color and depth to a plant grouping. Pothos are toxic plants, so care should be taken to keep them out of reach of children and pets.
Neon Pothos Sunlight Requirements
Neon Pothos will grow and retain its color best in bright indirect light, though it is able to grow in medium light as well. Place this plant in an east- or north-facing window for all-day bright light. Neon Pothos will also do well within a bright room with west- and south-facing windows. It is best to avoid direct afternoon light as it can easily scorch the tender leaves.
Neon Pothos Care
Pothos are generally low-maintenance plants when given plenty of indirect light and regular watering. These plants can remain in the same pot for at least two years at a time, not being particularly sensitive to being in small or large pots. When repotting, choose a pot with drainage holes that is an inch or two larger than the root ball. Pothos grows well in well-draining potting soil that retains a bit of moisture.
Watering Neon Pothos
Pothos are forgiving plants when it comes to watering, bouncing back from underwatering pretty quickly and not totally failing if they are overwatered occasionally. Allow the top inch or two to dry out before watering deeply, until water comes out the bottom of the pot. When a Pothos is drying out, its lowest leaves will start to droop, indicating that it is ready for water.
Feeding Neon Pothos
Pothos will benefit from regular watering in the spring and summer months. Add a liquid houseplant fertilizer into your watering routine once or twice a month, following dilution recommendations to avoid damaging the roots and leaves. Fertilizing can end in the winter when plants are growing less.
