Weekly Plant Tips #1

“Pothos is an evergreen plant with thick, waxy, green, heart-shaped leaves with splashes of yellow. As a houseplant, it is commonly grown as a hanging plant.

Pothos can climb by means of aerial roots, and wild or cultivated plants grown outdoors can reach enormous heights using tall trees as support. In addition, the leaves of outdoor plants grow many times larger than indoor plants.” …Encylopedia Britannica

Plant Life

With proper care, a pothos plant can last an average of 5-10 years. They prefer indirect light, so we don’t recommend for you to put it in a high light window sill.

Watering Habits

Pothos only needs water once it’s soil feels extra dry. We suggest checking it every 10 days or so. To determine the soil moisture, we like to heavily water our pothos plants in the sink. Then, we pay attention to the weight of the plant as we put it back in it’s place. It should feel slightly heavy. After 10 days or so, check your plant. If it seems far lighter than it did after you just watered it, then give it a good long drink! If it still seems somewhat heavy, wait another day or so!
