What other plant parents say
one of my oldest plants :) my pothos has tripled in size since i got her in early 2020. she does well in all lights and all environments. i’ve noticed in her current placement next to a north facing window, she gets a yellow leaf about once a week. but she is big and gorgeous and i love her :)
I absolutely adore this plant. I received it when my grandpa passed away this fall, so I’m determined to keep it alive. As a plant novice, I was a little worried but luckily that is pretty easy to keep this guy happy!
Such a gorgeous plant and makes me smile every time I look at it.
