Growing Scindapsus Aureus ‘Pothos ‘N’ Joy’

Anonymous added on February 8, 2011 | Answered

I recently was given this beautiful hanging basket plant. I'm not sure whether I will keep it in the basket or convert it to a pole plant; however, I need to know the proper care of this special plant. The leaves are variegated with more white than green.

    It needs the same basic care as a regular pothos, with one exception in that it will need more sunlight. Heavily variegated plants cannot produce as much energy from their leaves as their all green counterparts, so they need more light. So, unlike a normal pothos, this one will need medium light.
