Identify and How to Care for of Unknown Plant

I recently received this large house plant. However, I have no idea what it is or how to care for it. Please help!

Hi Jennie,

Your plant is called a Golden Pothos plant.

It likes medium light but no direct sun.

Water a pothos plant well and then allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering again. Over-watering is almost the only way to kill a pothos. Bright yellow leaves appearing after you water indicates that the plant has gotten too dry before you watered it. New growth and older leaves turn black when a pothos plant is over-watered. I usually let mine droop just a little before watering.

Fertilize pothos plants every two weeks in the spring and summer when the plant is actively growing and monthly in the fall and winter. Use a basic well-balanced plant food diluted to ½ the recommended strength.

Pothos plants do well in temperatures between 55° and 80°. If temperatures drop below 45°, a pothos plant stops growing and the leaves turn black.
