When grown indoors, pothos prefers bright indirect light but can tolerate shadier areas Variegated plants sometimes lose their leaf pattern and revert to all-green foliage if they don't receive enough light. Moving them to brighter conditions usually restores the variegation. Suddenly pale-looking leaves mean the plant is receiving too much sun.
A pothos plant likes to have its soil dry out completely between waterings. If left in damp soil, the plant's roots will rot. Black spots on the leaves indicate that the soil has been kept too wet.
Pothos love humidity. Misting is a great way to provide extra moisture, however, grouping humidity loving plants together also helps promote humidity in the air.
Average indoor temperatures of 20-26°C are fine for a pothos but avoid letting it get too cool.
During spring and summer, feed once a month with a general houseplant food. No feeding is necessary during the winter when plant growth naturally slows.
A pothos is considered toxic to humans and pets if ingested.
