Origins

We’ve already talked about theneon pothos, but we’ve mentioned the several types of neon plants that are out there. One of those is the golden pothos, our golden girl Dorothy.

Scientifically called Epipremnum Aureum, the golden pothos is one of the easiest plants to take care of when it comes to longetivity and pragmaticity. In fact, this plant is able to stand in different places for long periods of time, usually up to 5-6 years.

As the name suggests, this type of pothos is colored with a light hue of yellow, which might recall the colour of gold.

Like Dorothy in Wizard of Oz, this plant is very diligent and apt to be in any kind of environment. Originally from tropical areas like the West Indies, South East Asia, and even Australia, the golden pothos demands a just and constant amount of water and light.


 

How to Care

Despite the basic requirements aforementioned, this plant is not difficult to deal with. It essential to keep the soil fertilized and moist at least on a weekly basis, though. But remember: not too much water either. Changes are more than welcome in the golden pothos’ pot, not only for its soil, but also for trimming and curating its leaves.

Other facts

The golden pothos is an air-puryfying natural item that is easy to mantain in any type of indoor or outdoor environment - specifically offices, studios, or rooms filled with light. However, it is not the least toxic plant to have when you got cats or dogs. In fact, if the golden pothos’s leaves are swallowed, they can cause indigestion and other stomach complications in dogs, cats, and other small-sized pets.
