How easy is it care for?

An easy-to-care for climber or trailing plant, often with highly variegated leaves. Some modern varieties have very large leaves and make good specimens when trained around a moss pole. This climbing plant, resembling Philodendron scandens, has large, glossy ovate-cordate 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

Caring for your plant

Light

Grows well in all light conditions except the very darkest. In poor light, the non-variegated varieties will do better. Variegated varieties will revert to plain green in areas of poor illumination.

Watering

Light to medium water user. Allow the compost to dry out a little between watering.

Pruning

Long vines can be cut back to encourage bushier growth and to maintain the desired shape and size of the plant

Feeding

A weak solution of fertilizer can be added to the water every time you water the plant

Pest & Diseases

Epipremnum aureum is susceptible to attack by mealybugs and other sap-sucking insects
