The Benefits of Pothos as a Houseplant

Pothos do just fine in lower to medium light. The lower the light, the less variegation or color your plant will have. Varieties such as Jade Pothos or Neon do their best in low light situations while other varieties such as Marble Queen and Golden Pothos need slightly more light to maintain their variegation.

Pothos prefer to be watered every 7 to 10 days, less or more depending on the temperatures. Pothos plants do not like to be over-watered. They are great plants for plant parents that sometimes forget to water.

Pothos leaves will flag or wilt when they need water. Watering will revive the foliage back to its lush condition in no time at all.

Pothos are air purifiers. Pothos are listed by NASA as one of the best plants for cleaning indoor air. Pothos actually remove toxins from the air around them. Pothos is high on the list of plants that can help purify the indoor air of chemicals such as formaldehyde, trichloroethene, toluene, xylene, and benzene.

Growing Pothos Plants Indoors

Pothos is arguably the easiest of all houseplants to grow at home or in the office. If you are a person who forgets to water your plant's pothos are the plant for you. This trailing vine has heart-shaped leaves, that can be variegated with white, yellow, or pale green. While pothos likes bright, indirect light can thrive equally as well in areas that don’t get a lot of sunlight or have only fluorescent lighting such as offices or apartments.


Pothos plants thrive in ordinary, well-draining potting soil. we recommend Espoma Organic Potting Mix as we have found this soil to not hold too much moisture and become water-logged.


Pothos prefer bright but indirect light. Variegated pothos such as Golden Pothos, for example, sometimes will lose their leaf patterns and revert to all-green plants if they don't get enough bright light much light. If this begins to happen simply moving them to brighter conditions will restore the variegation. Pale leaves on solid color pothos are a sign of too much sun and they should be moved to a slightly darker location.


Pothos prefer to have their soil dry out completely between waterings. If pothos is kept too wet, the roots will rot. If you notice Black spots on the leaves this indicates the soil has been kept too wet. Don’t wait until the leaves start to wilt to water the plant as doing this often will cause the pothos plants to begin to shed leaves.

Dry, brown leaf edges mean the plant was kept dry too long and you should adjust your watering to happen more frequently.

Fertilizing Pothos

Pothos are not heavy feeders however they do appreciate being fed twice per month during the growing season. Feed your pothos plants with a slow-release fertilizer such as Osmocote Plus indoor/outdoor fertilizer. If you prefer to feed as you water we recommend Jack's Classic Houseplant special plant food.

Pothos are very easy to grow with other plants. Due to their relatively low vining habit, they are perfect neighbors when planted with other plants. Planting pothos in the same pot as a peace lily, for example, adds another level of texture and color.

Our customers have also let us know how well pothos do when planted in a pot with ficus trees. They are allowed to grow up the trunk of the ficus tree and both plants are very happy.

In order to propagate a pothos plant, take a cutting 4 to 6 inches long with 4 or 5 leaves. Trim or tear off any leaves too close to the stem before submerging the nodes (the small bumps on the stem) in water. Allow roots to grow for about a month before repotting in soil.
