Neon Pothos

Neon Pothos

    Commonly Known As:
  • Epipremnum Aureum 'Neon'

Neon Pothos traditionally grows on the Solomon Islands in the West Pacific and parts of Australia. Bold and vivid neon green leaves distinguish the Neon Pothos from other common variegations of Pothos plant. This tropical plant is a fan favorite for beginners and experts alike, due to its low key nature and durability

Bright neon green leaves visibly make the Neon Pothos a showstopper, but its care needs still make it one of the most unassuming and easygoing houseplants out there on the market. 

  • light

    Bright, indirect light will help your Neon Pothos thrive, but being a highly adaptable plant, Neon Pothos can also get used to lower lit settings if they need to. Avoid exposing your Neon Pothos to direct sunlight, as too much of the sun will cause burnt leaves and fading of the vibrant color that your Neon Pothos is known for.

  • water

    Watering once weekly or when the top 2-3 inches of your plant’s soil are dry will keep your plant living its best life. Neon Pothos also have the benefit of being fairly forgiving when it comes to forgetting your watering schedule but be aware: overwatering or letting your plant’s roots sit in water for too long can lead to root rot.

  • temperature

    Keep the temperature between 55⁰F and 90⁰F and your plant will be happy. While Neon Pothos prefer high humidity, they are generally fine in lower levels of humidity like those of the average household. For more vigorous growth, supplementing your plant’s environment with a humidifier, pebble tray, or planter with a reservoir could help give your Neon Pothos the tropical levels of humidity it craves.

  • fertilizer

    If you’re using a rich soil that’s high in nutrients, your pothos should thrive without being fertilized. Regular fertilization throughout the spring and summer months can help further promote growth and strengthen your pothos. An excellent quality, all-purpose fertilizer diluted to about half the strength suggested on the packaging once each month throughout spring and summer should suffice.

    Plant Facts
  • Neon Pothos are low maintenance and easy to care for, which makes them a great plant for a first-time plant parent.

  • Their air-purifying properties and beautiful trailing vines that can reach up to 10 feet on indoor varieties also make them a favorite amongst seasoned plant parents for homes, workspaces, and as gifts.

  • Really the only audience that’s not enthralled by the Neon Pothos is anyone who has tried to eat them: they are toxic and should be kept away from small children and pets who might accidentally ingest parts of them.

  • Difficulty: Easy

  • Origin: Solomon Island, Australia
