How to identify Pothos Plants?

A Pothos plant will have leaves that have a thick waxy feel to them, and are usually hanging down over the pot.

The leaves will be a dark green color and have streaks or patterns of white, yellow, red, pink, brown or purple colors on them. The stems can't typically hold more than one leaf before it starts to bend under the weight.

Pothos plants come in many different varieties with some even having variegated leaves! Varied textures might be rough bark like marble queen pothos that has silver-green colored skin with veins of darker blue throughout its body. Other Pothos plants look smoother such as Manjula which is all shades of light gray from hairless surfaces to hairy ones covered in warts and bumps!

How do you care for and maintain a Pothos Plant?

The most important thing to know about caring for a Pothos plant is that they like to grow in humid areas and need plenty of light! They can also thrive in any temperature so the best way to care for them would be with high humidity, natural or artificial light, and fertilizing every other week. When watering your pothos make sure it does not get too wet as this will lead to root rot which could kill your precious plants.

In order to keep your Pothos Plant happy you should mist their leaves once a day with warm water until the potting soil feels moist but not soggy.
