Unknown Houseplant??

Hi Judy,

Can you please tell me what these plants are? I bought them last summer thinking as they grew they would begin to hang, but that’s not the case. Actually they don’t seem to be growing well at all. Thanks for your help!

Hi Shirl,


Your plants are called Pothos Plants. If there is white coloring in the leaves they are called Marble Queen Pothos when there is yellow in the leaves they are called Golden Pothos. They do make wonderful hanging plants. Here’s what they would look like.

These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants.
