Pothos! A popular indoor plant because of its easy care and great decorative display of leafy greenery. Perfect for offices, stores, public locations and homes. You'll find this plant in many tropical countries because it grows so naturally. 

It is a vine or climbing plant, great for wall features or living indoor gardens. It will easily multiply to create your indoor jungle or gift to a friend. 

Pothos love bright indirect light and to be watered when soil dries. Usually every 2-3 weeks. More in bright sunny rooms. 

Pothos is also a great air filtration plant that collects pollutants and helps eliminate odours in the air. 

There are only 10 different species of pothos. 

If you pay close attention to their leaves they will tell you a lot about how your plant is feeling. Don't be discouraged if you see a yellow leaf. It's just giving you a sign of over or under watering. Too little or too much light.

If you listen to your plant they will tell you plenty.  You can make adjustments as you go. Pothos are very forgiving.
