As one of the most popular and eye-catching varieties of pohtos, neon pothos (Epipremnum aureum 'Neon') are low-fuss houseplants that are sure to brighten up any corner of your home. Native to the tropical Solomon Islands, this stunning variety of pothos is characterized by neon green, heart-shaped leaves and a vining growth habit. The best part is, neon pothos are easy to care for—making them great for beginners or those with a notoriously brown thumb.
Light: Bright, indirect light will help keep the leaves vibrant and avoid leggy growth.
Soil: Standard houseplant soil works well for these low-maintenance plants; or, if you are feeling fancy, you can create a slightly airier mixture by combining one part houseplant soil, one part perlite, and one part orchid bark for a chunky, organic soil mix that your pothos will love.
Water: Allow the top 2 to 3 inches of soil to dry out between waterings and then water thoroughly. Neon pothos are susceptible to root rot if their roots are left standing in water, so always ensure that your plant is in a pot with adequate drainage to ensure that the roots aren’t waterlogged.
