Pothos - Care Practices

  • Light: Bright indirect light to low light
  • Water: Allow the top 2 inches of the soil to dry before watering.
  • Humidity: Average relative humidity of 25% to 49%
  • Temperature: Average from 18°C to 24°C (65°F - 75°F)
  • Fertilizer: Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10.
  • Soil: Use a well-draining, high organic matter soil mix.
  • Propagation: Stem cuttings
  • Repotting: This can be done every 12-18 months. Choose a pot that is 2” larger in diameter than the original pot.
  • Cleaning Tip: Browning leaves are a sign of far too much sun or not enough water
  • Toxicity: Toxic. Keep plants away from children and pets.

How to Care for Pothos

My plant is wilting: Pothos is a great companion, they tell you exactly when they need to be watered. If the leaves are starting to droop down, it’s time to water!

The leaves turning yellow: There is a chance your plant is overwatered. Allow the top 2 inches of the soil to dry before watering again. Plants also lose their leaves at the base as they grow older, this is natural.

The tips of my plant turning brown: Browning leaves are a sign of far too much sun or not enough water. Place your plant in a spot with bright indirect light but no direct sun. This will burn the leaves.

Signs of Overwatering: New growth becomes soft and brown and the leaves begin to drop.

Common Pests: Mealybugs, spider mites, and scale.
