Epipremnum aureum - Golden Pothos
Pothos can be planted or tended to indoors throughout the entire year and will grow quickly, often adding between 12 and 18 inches of length a month. While pothos likes bright, indirect like, it can also thrive in areas that don't get a lot of sunlight or only have fluorescent lighting, making it an excellent option for locations such as offices and dorm rooms.
When grown indoors, pothos prefers bright but indirect light. Variegated plants sometimes lose their leaf pattern and revert to all-green plants if they don't get enough light—moving them to brighter conditions usually restores the variegation. Suddenly paler-looking leaves mean the plant is getting too much sun.
Pothos plants thrive in ordinary, well-draining potting soil. Soil pH is also not of consequence to the plant, and it can thrive in a range of conditions, from neutral to acidic.
Pothos like to have their soil dry out completely between waterings. If left in continually damp soil, the plant's roots will rot. Black spots on the leaves (or the sudden collapse of the plant) indicate that the soil has been kept too wet. Let the plant tell you when to water—when it starts to droop, it needs a good drink. However, don’t wait until the leaves start to shrivel or you will lose some leaves. Dry, brown edges mean the plant was kept dry too long.
