A little more finicky than some other pothos but still pretty easy.

Easy care. Water, plenty of sun. We were able to propogate Pearl into a sister plant. So my kids are enjoying having one to care for upstairs.

Test soil between hydration sessions, let it dry a bit between watering. More light (Indirect) will intensify the variegation. Prefers better soil blends Sphagnum Moss
2 Portions of Pumice
4 Portions of Coco Coir
4 Portions of Perlite
6 Portions of Pebbles or 6 Portions of Orchid Bark this lets it irrigate better avoiding root rot.

I like how this looks and grows but I do wish it grew faster like other pothos. Maybe I needs better conditions but it's still beautiful

My easiest and first plant, great survivability and beautiful leaves. Watered once every 9 days or so. Leaves will tell you when it needs watered (the droop and get squishy) which makes it great as long as you pay attention.

hardy plant. I originally bought it in a really tiny container and one day I noticed the leaves were super floppy and weak. They needed to be repotted in a bigger pot and I was afraid of root rot so I sprinkled the roots in cinnamon before I repotted. Within 24 hours it was like nothing had happened and new leaves are coming in!
