Gardeners' Notes:

These are magnificent indoor plants. They thrive in low to medium indirect light conditions with moderately moist soil but not to wet. I have 2, a Golden and a Lime and they are both wonderfully sized. If they get to long or uneven just trim them back and they will get fuller. Among the many other plants I have I had never had these plants but now that I have them I am getting more. I love the fact that they clean the air in the home. If you haven't enjoyed them you must!!

Neon Pothos is the newest addition to the Pothos family of plants. It's bright chartreuse green foliage really stands out (word up). This new plant took my family and I some time to get used to. The first plants we saw reminded us of a plant in need of a serious Miracle Grow!! lol We weren't quite sure what to think of we love them.

Place your plant in an area with bright, filtered, indirect, or even light light. Water when the soil is dry to the touch on smaller plants. Water larger plants when the surface of the soil had dried down about an inch.

Feed monthly with a balanced liquid plant food. If your plant becomes too long...just trim it back to the desired length. Root the cuttings in water or vermiculite. I bought mine at Home Depot in Trevose PA. The tag says grown at Bell Nursery.

One of the newer variety of Pothos or Devil's Ivy, Neon Pothos aka Pothos 'Goldilocks' is more compact and smaller in size than Golden Pothos and generally does not reach 18 inches or more; in fact, this plant is very easy to maintain at only about 6 inches. It is easy to grow and, unlike other pothos, has very beautiful, arrow-shaped leaves that are TOTALLY BRIGHT LIME GREEN WITH NO MARKINGS (hence the name 'Neon' Pothos). It is a great houseplant and is especially useful that it does not get as big as the other varieties of pothos and can be easily maintained in a short size and compact shape. It does not like sun and thrives in deep shade most plants won't tolerate... except the wonderful Pothos Vines! Like all pothos, it is great indoors in hanging pots or baskets - more so than the other varieties. A great new variety that can be used even in commercial buildings because it withstands dry air and low light!
