Pothos Pearls & Jade/Epipremnum aureum
This pretty pothos is a mutation of the marble queen pothos and originated at the University of Florida. The mutation was the result of some fancy radation using gamma rays. This one has smaller leaves than other pothos (average 2.5-3"), but the same trailing or climbing habits. They are a slower grower compared to other pothos, but the gorgeous variegation is considered worth the wait by many collectors. Commonly reaching length or heights of 6-10 ft it can reach 30ft in the right conditions. The variegation on this one is distinct in that it is splotchy and less defined than its cousin pothos Njoy.
Toxicity: Mildly toxic causing stinging around the mouth and digestive upset if consumed in large enough amounts.
Light: They thrive in bright indirect light which results in the prettiest variegation
Soil: a well-draining mixture with moisture retention is best. The easiest mix is 1 part indoor potting soil to 1 part perlite.
Humidity: they do best above 50% supplement with humidifier or misting if needed, but will also tolerate lower humidity
Watering: Allow the top 1-2 inches of soil to dry between waterings, better to go a little longer dry than to sit with "soggy feet" triggering root rot.
Fertilizer: They aren't heavy feeders. Use a general houseplant fertilizer diluted by half every other week spring through summer. Decrease to monthly during the fall/winter. We recommend using Gold Leaf mixed to 1 TBSP/gallon every two to three weeks from spring to end of summer. You can continue to fertilize every six weeks during the winter when the active growth is slower or skip it until spring.
