Marble Queen (Epipremnum aureum 'Marble Queen') is another standard pothos assortment. It highlights green heart-formed leaves vigorously sprinkled and streaked with a smooth white. The foliage is normally comparative in size to brilliant pothos. Marble Queen might be variegated; contingent upon the specific branch it was engendered from

Neon Pothos

Neon pothos (Epipremnum 'Neon') is perhaps the most unmistakable assortment. Its heart-formed leaves are dazzling chartreuse or brilliant yellow in variety with no variegation. The more current, more youthful leaves will generally be more brilliant than more established leaves. The foliage develops in variety with age

Jessenia Pothos

Jessenia pothos (Epipremnum 'Jessenia') shows green, heart-formed leaves richly set apart with chartreuse. Like Marble Queen (to which Jessenia is very comparable), each leaf will be unique. It's normally not excessively difficult to differentiate between Marble Queen and Jessenia when they're close to one another. The variegation of Marble Queen is a lot lighter than the limey-green variegation of Jessenia

They will flourish in supplement rich soil, yet do nearly too in supplement unfortunate soil.

At the point when it begins to hang, it needs water. Be that as it may, don't hold on until the passes on begin to wilt or the plant will lose a few leaves. Dry, earthy colored edges mean the plant was saved dry for a really long time.

Moreover, pothos plants like high stickiness, so you can increment moistness around the plant by keeping it in a normally muggy region of the home, like a kitchen or washroom.
