Comments:

Pothos or Devil's Ivy is a charming accent plant that is easy to grow in any home or office. It is popular for its marbled foliage, which keeps its variegation even in low light, making it a valuable houseplant to brighten dark corners. Pothos or Devil's Ivy, has a vining habit, which can be used as a vining groundcover, a hanging, cascading plant, or as a container plant trained along a pole or trellis. Prune and pinch back as needed to maintain desired shape and size. Not a heavy feeder; feed once or twice a year with soluble fertilizer.
