It seems to be hardy however I have had so many scale and mealy bugs constantly invade this plant. I do enjoy the lush green leaves and it will propagate fairly easily.

I’ve nearly killed this pothos twice now and it somehow is still alive.

If your green thumb isn’t so green this is the plant for you. Super easy to grow. Before I discovered Greg I watered it when it looked droopy. Since watering on a schedule it’s doubled in size. It loves fresh rain water but tolerates tap water and will thrive in indirect sunlight but does well with minimal light too. When the vines get too long I cut it off and put the cuttings in a glass of water to root. Once the cuttings have roots plant them in good soil and you’ve got another plant to enjoy.

I’ve had this plant for over 40 years. Why is it so small, you ask? I’ve nearly killed it numerous times, the last time so badly that all I could do to save it was take cuttings. I think the plain old jade pothos is so under-rated. I don’t ever even see it in stores anymore but it’s a gorgeous, shiny green and I prefer it to my variegated ones. Check back in a couple of years. I bet he’ll be huge again.

Easy to care for and usually hallways have lush, shiny green foliage. I admit I forget to water as frequently as I should but she thrives just as well as some of my desert plants! She’s even grown a few extra leaves while I wasn’t looking. My mom use to grow pothos while I was growing up and she still has the same mother plant along with quite a few clippings that she propagated and she’s even given quite a few away over the years. She’s always loved her pothos and when I started my plant journey and I knew it would be a good pick. They survive easily, it has to endure major neglect for even a few the leaves to brown, even I have maybe encountered one brown leaf from any my plants. At the same time, it’s hard to overwater these plants and they grow super fast. Even the clippings usually only take a few days, tops two weeks before the roots are ready to plant into dirt. My mom always just cut off the super long vines and would stick them in a vase with water until they had long enough roots and I don’t think she ever even had any of the clippings die! Very easy beginner plant even for the brownest of thumbs.

Nigh-unkillable. Cheap. Grows quickly. What’s not to love? If you don’t have a pothos, do you even have plants?

This is my favorite plant. It grows so fast, which is really encouraging when you’re having trouble with your other plants. It perks up quite quickly when it’s droopy due to a lack of water as well.

Such a lovely plant that cleans the air and is easy to care for. Artemis is a cutting from the mother plant I’ve had for years. She has never been in soil and gets some direct sunlight. She’s something special.
