Epipremnum aureum

Epipremnum aureum, marble queen

  • Aka: jade pothos, devils ivy, scindapsus
  • Origin: French Polynesian island- toxic
  • Family: Araceae
  • Temperature: 15 - 28°C, Hardiness: 8-12 Humidity 50-80%

A very easy trailing vine with thick heart shaped leaves of dark green (jade pothos) or mixed with light green and yellow (marble queen). In low light, the leaves may lose their variegation and too much light may fade the colours.

The soil should be well-draining and can dry out up to 50% before watering thoroughly and allow to drain. High humidity will prevent brown spots forming on the leaves. The pathos propagates easily by taking a stem cutting and placing it into soil or in water to root.

Prone to spider mites and thrips.
