Pothos Plants for Sale Online

Pothos plants or The Devil's Ivy is the perfect houseplant for beginners looking for a confidence-boosting plant to get them started as plant parents. Pothos is one of the easiest house plants that you can grow. This indoor house plant features green leaves splashed and marbled in yellow, cream, or white shades. There are also varieties with solid colored leaves of bluish-green and neon yellow.

Pothos are easy to grow in hanging baskets, allowed to climb a totem or trellis, or grown horizontally along a tabletop, shelf, or mantle. All members of the Pothos family are air-purifying plants. They have been shown to filter and purify indoor air from carbon monoxide, benzene, and formaldehyde, all common air contaminants in homes and offices.

Growing Pothos Plants

Pothos Plants do best in low to medium light. The lower the light, the less variegation your plant will have, so varieties such as Jade Pothos or Neon do their best in indirect light situations. Other highly variegated types such as Marble Queen and Golden Pothos plants need slightly more light to maintain their variegation.

Depending on the temperatures, Pothos prefer to be watered every 7 to 10 days. Pothos plants do not like to be over-watered. They are great plants for plant parents that sometimes forget to water as they will wilt when dry, but the heart-shaped leaves will perk right back up after receiving a drink.

Pothos Plants for Low Light

Pothos Plants thrive in Low Light. It's been said that Pothos would grow in darkness. Due to its love for humidity and the fact that it thrives in low light, Pothos plants are the perfect plant for bathrooms. Many people plant Pothos in hanging pots and put them in the corner of the bathroom or even the kitchen. You can even place the grower pot into a decorative pot cover and easily change the plants from room to room.

This offers you the ability to change the plants as you change your decor. Think of growing the plant in the bathroom like a spa weekend for your Pothos. Many office buildings rearrange their pothos plants to give the people a change of scenery. 

Pothos has also been called the cubicle plant as it's often seen in office buildings, and cuttings are often passed along in the office. The cuttings can be rooted in a vase or jar of water and transferred to a pot once roots become established.

Growing Pothos Indoors

Growing Pothos as an indoor plant requires no special care to be successfully grown. They tolerate low light but grow just as well in medium- and high-light areas. They will tolerate low humidity and the occasional missed watering but prefer moist but not wet soil. Pothos can be safely watered when the top couple of inches or so of the potting mix is dry. Use your finger to poke into the soil to check the moisture level.

You will not need to worry about fertilizing Pothos often. Feed Pothos at least twice a year or every six months or so with a general-purpose houseplant fertilizer such as Osmocote Plus Indoor and Outdoor Plant Food. You can undoubtedly encourage faster growth if you wish to fertilize the plant more frequently, but we recommend only using a liquid fertilizer at half strength.

Are Pothos Plants Toxic to Pets or Children?

All parts of the pothos plant are poisonous if ingested by pets or humans. We do not recommend Pothos for homes that have pets that tend to eat houseplants. Contact your veterinarian if your pet has chewed on this plant and your doctor or poison control center if ingested by a child or adult.
