About Neon Pothos

The bright yellow/green leaves of the neon pothos make them a popular choice for bringing color to your plant collection. Feng shui experts say placing pothos in sharp corners or angles in your home can reduce anxiety and stress. 😌\nA 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. 💨

like all pothos, my neon is pretty easy to take care of! although i am in a dorm that only has one window that gets good light, but not enough for him- he’s fine but he’s lost a little neon and is a bit of a green all over. but super pretty and easy to propagate!

Easy to care for like most pothos. Better to underwater than overwater, also like most pothos. You can wait until the soil is fully dry for a mature neon pothos before watering.

Neon Pothos is a rare pothos and is super cool! In order to keep its viberant colour it is best to keep in a sunnier spot over a dimmer one.
