Golden Pothos for Sale Online
Golden Pothos is one of the most well-known, popular houseplants, and for good reason! We will forever love these trailing tropicals, both for their timeless beauty and for their low-maintenance care regimen!
Botanically referred to as 'Epipremnum aureum,' the Golden Pothos sports gorgeous green heart-shaped leaves with splashes of gold variegation. Noted for their ability to grow in a wide variety of conditions, these popular indoor plants are perfect for beginner plant parents.
Also nicknamed the Devil's Ivy, these green queens grow at a vigorous rate and are one of the easiest houseplants to care for. For that reason, Pothos does well in hanging baskets or plant stands where the foliage can vine freely, covering space other plants can't. The plant's trailing stems can also be trained to climb up a moss pole or trellis to replicate their growth in nature.
Pothos plants prefer bright indirect light and the soil to dry out between waterings. Though this plant is extremely difficult to kill, any houseplant can be stressed out if given improper conditions. Signs that your Pothos is stressed would include yellowing leaves and crisp browning foliage.
If your Pothos seems in distress, you may want to try giving it a fresh potting mix! It is fully possible your indoor plant may have just outgrown its pot. Additional plant care tips include using a well-draining potting mix and a planter with drainage holes to avoid the chances of your plant's roots rotting.
If you didn't fall in love with this plant already, wait till you try multiplying your Pothos! These easy-to-grow plants can be easily propagated by placing stem cuttings in a clear jar of water. As your plants produce gorgeous roots before your eyes, you too will soon be obsessed with the Golden Pothos.
It is important to note that these plants are toxic to pets, so be sure to place your plant somewhere out of reach of your cats and dogs.

How to Care for Golden Pothos
Be sure to read our planting instructions to ensure a healthy and happy plant for years to come!
What is the best light for Golden Pothos?
Golden Pothos performs well in fluorescent light like office buildings or atriums or anywhere away from direct light. They can handle the bright, indirect light found in a northern or partially shaded eastern windowsill. Western or southern exposure would work as long as the plant is away from the window or the window is well shaded.
How do I water Golden Pothos?
Golden Pothos likes to stay slightly moist, not too wet or too dry. Too many yellow leaves means the plant is staying wet too often, whereas brown tips to the leaves means it has been kept too dry. They recover well from drying out occasionally. It generally takes a long time, but Pothos will wilt if not watered enough, making it clear when the plant absolutely needs water. Wilting can also be caused by the plant staying too wet; check the soil condition before watering excessively.
What is the best soil for Golden Pothos?
Golden Pothos does best in soil that stays slightly moist. Regular potting mix works well, try to keep the soil from drying out too much that it compacts, as it can be difficult to rehydrate. Golden Pothos also does well if grown exclusively in water without soil.
How do I fertilize Golden Pothos?
In general, Golden Pothos does not require fertilizer. Fertilizer is recommended only for plants potted in the same container for a long time to provide nutrients for new growth. Any all purpose, foliage fertilizer will work for Golden Pothos. Indoor houseplant fertilizers fall into two groups: water soluble, liquid quick release, and granular, slow release fertilizers. Jack's Classic Indoor plant food works well as a powder, quick release fertilizer that is mixed with water to quickly provide nutrients to a plant that has been in a container for an extended time. Osmocote Indoor/Outdoor is an option as a granular, slow release fertilizer that can be applied while potting and planting. Any type of fertilizer offers nutrients that help plants with the transition to a new environment. All of these fertilizers may be used when planting Golden Pothos indoors.
