About Golden Pothos
Feng shui experts say placing golden 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 golden pothos—along with Philodendron and spider plants—as the most effective in removing formaldehyde from the air. 💨

How to care for Golden Pothos
Golden Pothos needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot located in Columbia, South Carolina.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Golden Pothos can tolerate being far from a window and light source.
Place it less than 6 feet from a south-facing window to ensure it receives enough light to survive 💪.
We wouldn’t recommend testing its limits during this time of reduced sunlight intensity in Columbia, South Carolina ⛅.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Golden Pothos after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.

The growing potential in Columbia is low 📉.
Repotting in late fall or winter when the day lengths are shorter can be very stressful for a plant and cause it to go into shock.
It's best to repo…
What other plant parents say
this plant was given mealybugs from a neighboring plant but was one of 2 plants which were able to recover from the infestation and come back inside ! it’s pretty durable and forgiving if you forget to water it for a week or so. this plant has been great overall :))
