Caring is Preparing
(for the elements)

Sunlight:

The Pothos plant is resilient to most sun conditions. Placing them in medium indirect light is the most ideal to keep them full and lush.

Indoors:

Your Pothos will do great anywhere indoors! Avoid direct sunlight to avoid burning leaves.

Outdoors:

Like most plants, avoid direct sunlight and place them anywhere in indirect light. You can even hang them so they start to trail around your porch or patio!

Watering:

The soil needs to remain moist, avoid drying out completely. Wait to water when the soil is dry halfway down your pot.

Signs of too much water:

Brown spots on leaves, mushy appearance, or moldy soil.

Signs of too little water:

Yellowing, drooping leaves indicate they are thirsty! Never allow the soil to dry out completely.


Styling Pothos
(in the perfect location)

Indoors:

Pothos are so resilient and beautiful. Hang them from your ceiling or in a corner of your room to watch them as they become a living, trailing wall decor.

Outside:

Hanging outside on your porch, sitting on a table, or even planted in a dish garden with other plants will add depth and greenery to your outdoor space.

Toxicity:

These plants are highly toxic to pets and humans if ingested. Keep up high and away from pets and children.
