Pothos Plants

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap,
but by the seeds that you plant.”
Robert Louis Stevenson

If you’re one of those that believes you don’t have a green thumb, buy a pothos plant and you’ll be surprised to find out how green your thumb can become.

The pothos plant is believed by many to be a great way to get started caring for houseplants. The plants care is undemanding. This hardy plant is an easy way to add some green in your home. They can tolerate low light as well as direct sunlight.

What I love about this plant is its versatility to be grown in water or in dry soil. That’s why propagating them is so easy. Just take a snip off one of the leafy vines, place it in a glass of water and within a week you will have new roots. You can either leave it in the water, as I do sometimes, or plant it in potted soil. The only downside to pothos is they’re poisonous. So, be sure to keep them far enough away from children and animals.

All my plants have been flourishing lately. So much so, that I’ve been propagating a few overgrown ones. Five years ago, I started with one pothos plant and I now have five. Mostly likely by the end of the year, that will grow to half a dozen hardy pothos plants.
