Most people have seen a pothos before. Maybe you have seen one strung in impressive swags across the walls of your favorite Mexican haunt, in the hardware store plant section, or maybe in a relative’s home growing up. Many people recognize the often brightly colored, trailing houseplant. This particular variety of pothos that we are so excited to be sharing with you all this week, the pothos “silver splash,” however, is a little less common than the often instantly recognizable green queen, or golden pothos.
And not only is this plant beautiful, it’s really relatively easy to care for. In fact, this native-to-Asia plant has been considered invasive in areas. If you want a plant to grow for you, what’s better than something with a tendency to take off and take over! Scoop up one of these beautiful, hardy plants for 20% off all this week (May 5 – May 12). You can also enter to win on this week in store, or on Instagram and Facebook accounts. Winner must be able to pick up in store.
Quick Tips for your Pothos Silver Splash:
- Bright Indirect light is definitely best for
- It will tolerate medium-to-lower light conditions also, but may not grow as quickly
- Allow the pothos to go mostly dry before
- Too much soggy soil on a pothos can cause the roots to rot
- When you do water your pothos, do so thoroughly before allowing it to dry again.
- The pothos can also be grown and thrive in water.
- Use a well-draining soil for your pothos
- These plants do not like to be soggy!
- These plants are considered toxic, so keep out of reach of any curious eaters
- Bonus tip: Pothos are very easy propagators. You can cut a leaf right at the node, stick it in water, and watch the roots begin to grow!
