POTHOS, A GREAT FRIEND FROM HOME

Posted By: Anna Garcia

Pothos are one of the most popular plants in Spanish homes. Perhaps it has earned this popularity not only because of its purifying qualities, but above all, because of the elegance that marks its leaves and its ornamental qualities. A perfect plant for those who are not certainly skilled with gardening, but also for those who want to enjoy an undemanding plant in their home. It is a very easy-care, fast growing and multiplying plant. An icon of the Mediterranean houses!

Furthermore, depending on the variety, the Pothos are capable of growing vertically (as a climber) but also downwards (hanging). A plant that allows us to play with its appearance as part of the decoration of our house.

POTHOS CARE 

Inside plants.

Ideal temperature: between 16 and 21 ºC.

Light: they need to be in bright spaces and filtered light, for example through a curtain. Do not expose to direct sunlight. Pothos thrives in indirect light all year long, direct sunlight will burn the leaves, while low light will turn the leaves pale green.

Irrigation: 1 irrigation/week. Once the substrate is dry. In case you overwater, the Pothos will warn you by yellowing its typical green leaves.

Nutrients: follow directions of CitySens nutrients. Fertilize every month in the growth period and every three months in the resting period.

Substrate: important is that the substrate in which it grows is as complete as possible.

Ambient humidity: high level of ambient humidity.

Pothos are slightly toxic to pets. Ingestion can cause stomach irritation and possible vomiting.

Today we want to delve into 4 varieties of exclusive Pothos that are more difficult to find, but they will make you fall in love immediately. Each one has special characteristics that make it unique.

Pothos Neon  

The Pothos Neon is a very decorative bright yellow variety. Ideal for indoor and humid spaces. Keep in mind that it requires a lot of natural light but without the direct incidence of the sun. Pothos Neon is very easy to grow because of its adaptation. Even though, its growth is a little slower, it is as resistant as the more common Pothos. In addition, it is excellent for hanging or climbing on stakes. Essential in any corner of your home!

Pothos Pictus

The Pothos Pictus or Silver Pothos (Scindapsus pictus) is unique for its thick velvety leaves and its unique silver spots. Yes, silver!

It comes from hot and humid places: specifically from the tropical jungles of Southeast Asia. There they climb happily on the trunks of the trees. However, in colder climates, such as the Mediterranean, they must be grown indoors.

The Pothos Pictus is a captivating vine… a true delight as a decorative indoor plant. It stores water inside, so it can withstand heat and drought very well. A unique and grateful species - and also an air purifier. Besides, this plant is a warrior. It can withstand large amounts of light (always indirect) as well as thrive in low light conditions.

The Pothos Pictus is one of the most desired and most difficult ones to find. There is no other plant like it, SPECTACULAR!

Pothos N’joy

It is the star of the Pothos. It stands out for its exclusive leaves with various shades of green and asymmetric and well-defined white and cream spots. The Pothos contributes to purify the air and grows very quickly.

They reproduces easily by cuttings from the end of the stems (apical). Putting them into water is enough, so they will sprout roots after a few days. Then, they must then be planted in a small pot, so they can grow.

The fascinating shades of the leaves form a natural mosaic and are the absolute protagonists of the home.

Also known as the Queen of Marble, it is the most popular variety to grow indoors. It is a slow growing plant - perfect if you have limited space. Moreover, the foliage of its leaves stands out with the green-white color, doing justice to its name.

Pothos Common

Who does not know the common Pothos? This is a fantastic vine that is usually grown indoors as it cannot stand the cold. The leaves are evergreen, alternate and heart-shaped. And it must be said that they have an intense green that shines if we place them in the sunlight (always indirectly).
