Devil’s Ivy, or Epipremnum aureum, is a popular climbing plant that is trained to climb up our moss pole (included). Devil’s Ivy resembles Philodendron scandens and has large, glossy leaves arranged alternately along the length of its stem. In some varieties, such as ‘Marble Queen’, the leaves are highly variegated. It produces adventitious roots along the length of its stem to help it grip to its support. In the wild, it can grow up to 12 m tall. The small arum-like flowers are never produced on indoor plants. Some modern varieties have very large leaves and make good specimens when trained around a moss pole. Smaller plants can be grown so that the foliage hangs down from the edge of the pot, and are ideal for plants kept up high. The name Epipremnum means upon the trunk, referring to the way the plant climbs up the trunks of supporting trees. Aureum refers to the plant’s golden colour and this houseplant is sometimes called Golden Pothos.
All our potted plants come in compostable coir pots.
