Additional Information


Epipremnum aureum

Plant availability:

Please note that plants are often subject to growers' stocking levels and seasonal availability.

Origin:

Malaysia, New Guinea and Pacific islands

Common Names:

Variegated Devil's ivy, Golden Pothos


Size:

Up to 20cm (h) above soil if grown as a trailing plant, can get to 2m (h) if it is trained on a frame or post, can fall to 1.5m if left to trail from a hanging basket.

Growth Habit:

Can be grown as a hanging basket plant (trailing), in a pot or trained up a totem pole.

Position:

Indoors in filtered light position. No direct sun rays on the leaves as sunlight is too strong and will scorch many indoor plants. Keep away from direct air flow from a heating or cooling vent.


General Care and Maintenance:

  • For best results, grow as an indoor plant in Melbourne. Prefers temperatures above 15 degrees celsius.
  • Watering: Water regularly in spring, summer and autumn (during warm weather) but allow the soil to dry out slightly before watering again. This is best checked by scratching the top 2 cm of soil back with your finger. Water sparingly through winter. If you keep your home cool over summer, adjust watering accordingly. Over watering is a common cause for this plant to look sick or die.
  • Humidity: This plant prefers a tropical environment and will therefore benefit from regular misting with a hand-spray.
  • Fertilising: Use slow release fertiliser (this is already present in all good potting mixes) however it will need to be topped up every 3 - 6 months (depending on the brand and application rates). In warm weather, apply a liquid fertiliser such as 'Powerfeed' every 1-2 weeks.
  • When repotting, use good quality potting mix such as 'The Greenery Potting Mix' available in bags in store.
  • Prune to control growth, keep compact or encourage thicker growth. Remove dead or damaged foliage to keep plant looking its best.



Design Tips:

Stunning plant grown in a designer hanging basket, in a pot placed on a stand where the plant can trail down or in a pot trained up a totem pole. Often used in kitchens sprawling from a high shelf or in a book case. We sell advanced sizes (depending on grower availability) which are already mounted to a timber pole.


Air Filtration:

Removes benzene, trichloroethylene, xylene and formaldehyde.
