Can you identify this plant?
This plant was bought for my mothers funeral and I never knew what it was. I would like to know what it actually is. It seems kind of viney. I’ve had it for a year and a half. Thank you.
Your plant is called a pothos plant and it looks like you’re doing a great job caring for it. A Golden Pothos has yellow and green leaves, a Marble Queen Pothos has white and green leaves, and a Jade Pothos has solid green leaves. Here are some care tips:
Light: There is a pothos plant variety for almost any light situation. Green Jade pothos with their solid green leaves do well in low light. The Golden pothos variety with yellow and green leaves likes medium light. Marble Queen pothos with green and white leaves grow best in medium to bright indirect light. The lighter the color in the leaves, the more light a pothos plant requires.
Water: Water well and then allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering again. Over-watering is the main reason a pothos plant dies. Bright yellow leaves indicate the soilt has gotten too dry before you watered it. New growth and older leaves turn black when a pothos is over- watered.
Fertilize: Feed 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.
Propagate: Propagate using stem cuttings
