Scientific Name: Epipremnum Aureum

Common Names: Golden Pothos, Devil’s Ivy, Centipede Vine

Overview: The golden pothos is a favorite of those who like vining-style plants that can sprawl across entire indoor walls or outdoor trellises. The vines of the fully grown pothos can reach up to 40 feet in length, although regular pruning can keep the plant confined to your available space. This version of pothos, also known as the “Devil’s Ivy” because of its arrow or spade-like leaves, is characterized by a vibrant yellow gold striation pattern.

The golden pothos is an ideal plant for those who are just beginning to cultivate a vining-style house plant since it requires very little maintenance, and indirect sunlight, plus, it is extremely easy to propogate into new plants.

 

Description

Let your Golden Pathos Sprawl Out To Create An Indoor Jungle

The Golden Pothos is an ideal plant choice as maintenance requirements are minimal outside of regular pruning. You can even skip its watering schedule without harming it. Native to the Solomon Islands, this plant also goes by many other names, the most common one being “devil’s ivy.”

This is because the pothos vine is long, trailing, and heart-shaped, assuming the shape of an arrow. The leaf striations can sometimes have white, pale green, or yellow undertones. A mature-sized, large pothos can reach a length of up to 40 ft and is 3 to 6 feet in width.

The scientific name for Golden Pothos is Epipremnum Aureum. The Aureum represents the Golden variety of the Pothos. The first description of this plant came about in 1880, and it was first given the name Pothos Aureus.

Moving forward to 1962, researchers observed that the plant could also flower, and upon observation, they re-named the plant, Rhaphidophora aurea. Nonetheless, close examination of its flower concluded that the plant shared many similarities to Epipremnum pinnatum.

After that, they decided to synonymize the plant with that species. Further observations and studies on the growth patterns, leaves, and physical features revealed that the plant indeed lies in the category of aureum.

Caring for your Golden Pothos

Because of the minimum care they require, if you adhere to simple care measures, it will lead to a luscious, full, and long plant. The plant can grow vines that grow about 30 feet long, and people will often hang the vines around their balcony railings and windows for aesthetic reasons.

Water

As mentioned above, the plant is very easy to maintain. When it comes to watering, the Golden Pothos and all the other types of pothos like to dry out a little bit in between watering. When watering this plant, you have to let the excess water drain out of the pot.

After draining out all the excess water, push your finger down into the soil and feel whether it is starting to dry out. If you let the roots of the plant stand inside the water, then you will end up with root rot, and the plant will react to it immediately.

Light

When you grow the plant indoors, it is best to provide this plant with indirect and bright light. If this plant does not receive enough light, then it will lose its leaf pattern and may also revert to green foliage. To restore their variegation, you will have to shift the plant to brighter conditions. If the leaves turn pale all of a sudden, this may be an indication that the plant is receiving excessive sunlight.

Soil

Like mentioned earlier, Pothos plants thrive in well-drained and dry soil. The plant is also very resilient to varying degrees of soil PH levels. Therefore, it does not matter whether the soil is too acidic, neutral, or alkaline.

Fertilizing Your Plant

Since these plants are not too demanding, you can use any houseplant fertilizer on a monthly or bi-monthly basis to feed them.

Common Issues

Pothos is usually free of any pests. This is, however, not to say that that you do not have to worry about any issues. Occasionally, the plant will suffer from mealybug infestation. Nonetheless, with the help of simple insecticidal soap and alcohol-soaked cotton swabs, you can control the pests and insects.

Pruning

When pruning, it is important that you only cut a quarter of the vine, which is only about a few inches from the leaf. The point where you make the cut or prune the vine will experience new growth in the form of a vine. When carrying out this process, make sure that you do not leave any leafless vine.

Propagation

Stem cutting allows for easy Pothos propagation. Use the following procedure:

  1. Use a sharp, sterile tool to cut a one-half inch below the lowest leaf
  2. Remove the leaf
  3. Once you find sprout growth, start replanting.

Potting / Repotting Your Pothos

As the pothos continues to grow out, it becomes very dependent on the pot. This means that the pot becomes a center where the full weight of the plant is focused. When the plant begins to over-grow, you find that the roots are filling up the pot, and they may even be growing out of the potholes. Re-potting will then have to take place if you want the Pothos Epipremnum to have a sizable growth.

    I wish I was able to post a picture of this plant, but it’s absolutely stunning! I got the large with the large hanging basket, and I can officially say it’s the healthiest plant I’ve gotten in quite some time. I also really appreciate this site waiting to ship until the weather conditions are right. For this price, I’ll definitely be buying more from here soon. 100% recommend.

  9. Anonymous (verified owner)

    The plants are beautiful, however, when they arrived several tiny frogs came out of the plants (and continued to do for several days), and despite repotting them, a small lizard egg hatched weeks later and I had to deal with catching a lizard in my apartment. I’m concerned that the soil is just filled with eggs.

  12. BARBARA G. (verified owner)

    Plant was expertly packaged and arrived without a leaf out of place. I paid for the 2 day shipping because it is very hot here now. Soil was moist and no soil was disturbed during shipment due to excellent packaging. It was a bit of a challenge to remove, but worth it.

  16. Kim (verified owner)

    My plants arrived well packaged and beautifully cared for. I loved the pre-shipping picture of my plants. I’ve ordered from several online plant retailers and, by far, this is the best quality I have received. I will be ordering from PlantVine again.
