Pothos

Posted on by

It’s hard not to love the very easy-going Pothos. Which makes them not only a great plant for your home, but a good gift for your friends or loved ones who might not think they have green thumbs.

These versatile houseplants look great in a pot or hanging in a container (they look particularly fetching in macrame hangers, which have made a comeback.) They grow well in bright light or direct light, meaning they pretty much will flourish anywhere in your home.

Caring for Your Pothos – One of┬átheir very few demands is not being overwatered, so keep the top few inches of soil dry and test the soil prior to watering. You should feed them on a regular schedule from April or May through August. Just follow the instructions on the label of your favorite plant food. (We recommend VF11 organic liquid fertilizer once a month.)

Pothos love a good misting and it’s also important to dust them when needed so they photosynthesize efficiently. This also gives you a chance to inspect you plant for any pesky pests or bugs.
