The neon pothos, scientifically known as Epipremnum aureum 'Neon', is a stunning houseplant with vibrant neon green leaves. It is a popular choice among beginners due to its easy-care nature.
Neon pothos thrive in bright, indirect light. Avoid exposing them to direct sunlight as it can scorch their leaves. If the plant is not getting enough light, its leaves may turn dull and lose their vibrant color.
Water your neon pothos when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Avoid overwatering as it can lead to root rot. During the winter months, reduce the frequency of watering as the plant goes into a dormant state.
Neon pothos prefer high humidity levels. They will benefit from regular misting or placing a humidity tray nearby to increase the moisture around the plant.
Neon pothos prefer a warm and consistent temperature between 65-85°F. Avoid exposing them to cold drafts or sudden temperature changes.
Fertilize your neon pothos every 4-6 weeks during the growing season with a balanced fertilizer. Do not fertilize during the winter months when the plant goes into a dormant state.
Neon pothos are easy to propagate through stem cuttings. Simply cut a few inches of the stem below a leaf node and place it in water or soil. Keep the cutting in a bright, warm location and mist it regularly until it develops roots.
Pests and Diseases
Neon pothos are relatively pest and disease-free. However, they can be susceptible to mealybugs and spider mites. If you notice any infestations, treat them immediately with an insecticide or by wiping the leaves with rubbing alcohol.
By following these simple care tips, your neon pothos will thrive and add a pop of color to your home or office.
