Pothos are a very easy to grow trailing plant. You can pinch the ends to induce bushiness or you can train them to grow up a moss or wood stake.

LIGHT: Pothos like a well lit spot but will do well in partial shade. You may lose some of the variegation in the leaf with less light. They do not however like hot, direct sunlight.

WATER: Water generously from spring through fall, letting the soil dry out between waterings. Cut back on water during the winter. Avoid over-watering as the leaves closest to the soil will turn mushy and roots will rot quickly.

Pothos are a good choice for someone just starting out in plant care or for that person who doesn't have a "green thumb".

These plants are readily available in 3", 4", 6", on poles in 8" pots and in 8" hanging baskets.
