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. 💨

This was my first real plant purchase I made when starting my green thumb journey! Very easy to take care of, and incredibly fun to watch grow 🌱

Definitely bottom water, because sometimes the leaves can be sensitive to excess water droplets sitting around.

A Pothos plant is your aquarium’s best friend! After thoroughly rinsing the roots of as much soil as possible, set them up so that the roots are in the water but the plant itself is out of the water. Best way to pull nitrates out of your fish tank and grow your Pothos at the same time! Roots quickly convert to underwater growth and plenty of new leaves within a matter of a couple weeks. Fish tank waste equals nutrients for plant, plus fish tank light meant for growing aquatic plants equals BIG GROWTH!!

Love potros because they grow so fast. Watch out for little bugs though, they attract little nats. I’ve kept the nats at bay with spritzes of neem oil.

This plant loves bright and even moisture. The closer to the light the larger the leaves!

Good starter plant! Super resilient, and very communicative! It's leaves let you know when it's watering time so you won't miss it!

This beautiful little pothos came to me with many browned crispy edges.
I’ve been trying to correct that since.
Regardless, it’s a gorgeous and fun little plant. I can’t wait until it starts trailing and filling up.
