Pothos 'Neon' Description

The 'Neon' has glossy, heart-shaped leaves that are a striking bright green color, which is especially vivid when the plant is placed in good light. It shares the same vining habit as other Pothos varieties, making it ideal for hanging baskets, climbing up a trellis, or draping over the edge of a shelf.

The Pothos 'Neon,' scientifically known as Epipremnum aureum 'Neon, is a vibrant and popular variety of Pothos noted for its electric, lime-green foliage. This eye-catching plant is easy to care for and makes a perfect addition to any indoor space, bringing a splash of color with its unique neon leaves.

Care Plan for Pothos 'Neon'

Light: Pothos 'Neon' thrives in bright, indirect light but is incredibly adaptable and can also do well in low light conditions. Brighter light enhances the neon color of the leaves, whereas lower light may cause the plant to become leggy and the color to dim slightly.

Watering: Water the 'Neon' when the top inch or two of soil feels dry. It's drought-tolerant and prefers to be on the drier side rather than waterlogged. Ensure that the pot has good drainage to avoid root rot.

Humidity: This plant is not particularly demanding regarding humidity and can thrive in average household humidity levels. If you notice dry leaf tips, it might benefit from slightly increased humidity.

Temperature: Ideal temperatures for growth are between 60-85°F (15-29°C). Avoid placing the 'Neon' near drafts or heating and cooling vents as extreme temperatures and drafts can stress the plant.

Child and Pet Safety: Pothos 'Neon' is toxic to both pets and humans if ingested. The plant contains calcium oxalate crystals, which can cause oral irritation, drooling, and gastrointestinal upset. It's advisable to place the plant in a location out of reach of pets and children.

General Tips: Fertilize the 'Neon' every 1-2 months during the growing season with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength. Regular pruning can help manage its growth, encourage fuller development, and remove any leggy stems.
