About Manjula 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.

💨 Humidity

Manjula Pothos doesn’t require additional humidity. Plants absorb most water through their root system rather than their leaves, so the best way to provide humidity for your plants is through watering the soil.

Manjula Pothos Humidity Needs →


🪴 Soil

Manjula 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!

💩 Fertilizer

Manjula Pothos should be repotted after it doubles in size or once a year, whichever comes first. Fresh potting soil has all the nutrients your plant needs, so as long as it’s refreshed yearly, you shouldn’t need to use fertilizer. Remember, plants get their energy from sunlight, not fertilizer!

How Much and When to Fertilize Manjula Pothos →

🌱 Propagation

Manjula 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.

Haven’t had my Pothos for that long turned up in very soggy soil leaving me with browning on the leaves and had to repot and remove the browning leaves, but I’m hopeful that this plant with thrive once it’s recovered.

They’re generous plants that provide beautiful foliage. Easy to grow from props too, mine came from Etsy and have been such forgiving, easy care plants. I’ve used a mix of bark, potting mix and pearlite in a terracotta pot for best results!

Pretty easy! Likes to dry out between watering. Pretty hearty. Mine has lost a couple of leaves but the ones that are still there look great. Doesn’t seem to be the fastest grower.

This one seems to need a LOT of indirect light in order for it to grow big paddley leaves but it’s so worth it when each leaf is bigger than the last 😍. I think the variegation is stable also (but could be wrong).

Survived me forgetting to water it for 3 weeks. Grows very quickly in the spring and summer. Had some problems with pests but was my fault I think.
