Scindapsus

Light:

Pothos is a very versatile plant that can tolerate the lower light levels or bright filtered light of a home. The yellow variegations of the plant become more pronounced when exposed to greater amounts of light.  Avoid direct sunlight

Water: 

Let soil dry out slightly in between waterings.  Watering more liberally in spring to autumn and sparingly in the winter.  Mist leaves frequently.  

Temperature:

Average warmth with a minimum of 10 °C in the winter.

Fertilizer:

Feed monthly to bi-monthly, with any balanced houseplant fertilizer.

Potting:

Pothos prefer a slightly acidic soil, but any well-draining potting mix will suffice. If necessary re-potting in spring is best.   Pothos can be easily propagated, take stem cuttings in spring or summer and use a rooting hormone. Keep compost rather dry and leave in a dark room until rooted.
