Easy Care Plants: Pothos and Philodendron

Posted by

Pothos and philodendron are often mistaken for each other, but both types of plants are easy to grow indoors. And there are lots of variations to choose from — anything from variegated leaves to leaves that look like Swiss cheese. Produced by the Department of Communications at Kansas State University.

    The 2 first plants are Epipremnum aureum and E. aureum ‘Marble Queen’, the next ones are Philodendron hederaceum and its yellow cultivar. The last one is a species of Monstera. Please use proper names if you want to be reliable. Visit Araceum website – there you’ll find correctly identified plants.

    @kevink18 ..hi,ive had many Pothos for 25 yrs..sorry but ur Ma is wrong…thats why i love these…hang the vines over,on anything…poles,curtain rods,chains,off and down book shelves,dressers growing around the mirror is cool ;)…just water once a week and keep in indirect sun,will grow for yrs. Great for cuttings 2,just put in water for 2 weeks or so and plant,you can get 10 new plants in a yr just from the mother plant! Happy trails! lol

    I have a large Pothos thats been growing for 2yrs. We’re going to change its location in our house soon. My mom insists that the leaves shouldn’t touch anything or they’ll die (furniture, the floor, the counter etc). Can you advise? We want to put it on top of the kitchen cabinets where the vines will most likely touch the wood tops of them. It once was on our wood picnic table for 2 months and it didn’t seem to do too well. Can’t let it hang any more, the vines are extremely heavy now. Thanks.
