About Global Green Pothos

Feng shui experts say placing pothos in sharp corners or angles in your home can reduce anxiety and stress. 😌 A NASA/ALCA study on the use of common plants for indoor air purification also labeled them—along with Philodendron and spider plants—as the most effective in removing formaldehyde from the air. 💨 The genus name Epipremnum comes from the Greek roots meaning 'upon' and 'stump', since these plants are expert tree climbers! All parts of them are toxic, so be sure to keep them away from furry friends and small children.

Global Green Pothos does best in well-draining soil. A good soil will contain lots of organic matter such as coco coir as well as perlite or vermiculite to help with drainage. Adding a handful of perlite to regular store-bought potting soil should do the trick!

🌱 Propagation

Global Green Pothos can be propagated by the stem method. To propagate:

  • Make a cut just above the node. The node is the break in the stem where the leaf emerges.
  • To get the cutting to root, you can either:
    • Place the cutting in water until roots emerge and are ~2” long and then transplant into well-draining soil, or
    • Place the cutting directly into well-draining soil and water when dry.

🧐 Troubleshooting

When troubleshooting a sad-looking houseplant, start by checking for signs of distress in its leaves, such as yellowing, browning, or drooping, which can indicate overwatering or nutrient deficiencies.

Inspect the soil moisture; too dry or too wet soil can cause problems.

Ensure the plant is getting the right amount of light, as too much or too little can stress it.

Finally, consider environmental factors like temperature and humidity, and adjust care routines accordingly to revive your plant.
