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.

This plant is very hardy and has gone through a lot and still pushing out leaves every week. I have not propagated this plant but if you cut it at the node and plop it in water it should start to root! Happy growing! 🌱
