8 Unique Types Of Pothos For Your Home

pothos1

Pothos plants are a favorite for any plant parent! They are easy to care for, can live in most environments, and make a beautiful addition to every part of your home. Their cascading vines are an attention-grabber and make them a great option for a hanging planter or raised plant stand. 

Pothos can thrive in a range of light, from the low light of an office to the bright, indirect sunlight of a shaded windowsill. Additionally, you can grow this plant in soil or water, allowing you to choose whatever best suits your lifestyle. If you choose soil, make sure to let it dry out completely between waterings. Pothos do well in temperatures ranging from roughly 55°- 90°F, so the normal climate of your home should be just fine.

Finally, pothos is a plant that keeps giving because of the ease of pruning stems and propagating to grow baby pothos! If you have pets or children, make sure to do a bit of extra research because most pothos are known to be toxic if ingested. 

Once you start your research on pothos, you’ll quickly find that there are quite a few varieties. Read on to learn about some of the best options for your indoor decor! 

Marble Queen Pothos

Marble Queen Pothos from Garden Goods 

You can find Marble Queen Pothos at most plant nurseries and they are notoriously easy to care for. The green and white marble leaves form a cascading vine that makes it the perfect option for a hanging planter. This plant does best with indirect light and consistent watering but is very resilient so don’t panic if you miss a few waterings!  

Golden Pothos

If you are familiar with pothos, the Golden Pothos is most likely the one you’ve seen around. Another easy-to-care-for variety, this is a great option for first-time plant parents or anyone who wants low-maintenance greenery to complement their home. They can withstand minimal natural light and little water for weeks, and even have air-purifying qualities! If you are on the fence about what plant to get, Golden Pothos is always a safe choice that will not disappoint. 

Pearls and Jade Pothos

Pearls and Jade Pothos by Brittany Goldwyn

Unlike the cascading nature of some other pothos, the Pearls and Jade Pothos are known to climb! Although they tend to be slow-growing, this variety can climb up to 30 feet! (Don’t worry though – on average, they reach 6-10 feet tall, which is much more manageable for our indoor spaces). Pearls and Jade thrive in indirect light and should not be overwatered to avoid root rot.  

Silver Pothos

If your interior design is missing a vine integrated into its surrounding, check out the Silver Pothos. Also known as Satin Pothos, Silver Pothos attaches to other surfaces through its roots and, although it sometimes needs a bit of help, encircles whatever it is placed by. We love this option to decorate an indoor trellis structure! These heart-shaped and silver-spotted leaves are sure to step up your decor.

Neon Pothos

As expected from its name, the Neon Pothos displays vibrant green leaves, guaranteed to be the star of any indoor plant display. We love that this plant can adapt to any amount of light, so it can be placed in a dimly lit room to allow its leaves to bring brightness into the space.

If you want to make sure it keeps its neon colors, a growlight is a great option; it allows your plant to be displayed away from a natural light source while still getting the exposure it needs to stay lively.

Hawaiian Pothos

To transform your home into a beachy haven, Hawaiian Pothos bring a tropical feel with their curvy-edged golden leaves. These plants grow rather quickly, so make sure to keep up with repotting and pruning to ensure they stay healthy and look fresh. You can also propagate Hawaiian Pothos by cutting at the stem and placing it in water; within a few weeks, you’ll have a baby Hawaiian Pothos to decorate with!

Jessenia Pothos

A variety of the Marble Queen Pothos, the Jessenia Pothos shares similar heart-shaped leaves with a marbled color design. What we love about the Jessenia Pothos is the unique color of its vegetation. Compared to the light green Marble Queen variety, the Jessenia shows a darker, richer green, making the marble effect a bit more muted. Consistent with other varieties, the Jessenia requires minimal attention and makes a beautiful hanging plant! 

Manjula Pothos

pothos 8 e1657042463323Manjula Pothos from Guy About Home

The Manjula Pothos will add a bit of spunk to your space. With curvy leaves and an irregular white and green pattern, this plant doesn’t need a fancy planter to help it stand out. If you are looking for a slow-growing vine that will display unique patterns throughout your space, the Manjula Pothos is calling your name! Since they do grow rather slowly, make sure this vine is given plenty of indirect sunlight to encourage growth.

Light is perfect, timer is not

The light is so beautiful! Extremely sleek and feels very solid, like a quality fixture should. I ordered the large white version, and the wood arm so I could attach that to the wall rather than fuss with the hardware and hook it to the ceiling. (I'll avoid drywall anchors at all costs, but it's great they were included). My plants are happy, and I'm thrilled with how it looks in my home! Only issue I've had is with the outlet timer - it just doesn't work. The instructions aren't complicated, of course there's always a potential for user error but there's only so many switches that can be flipped and I've tried all directions with no success. Admittedly its rather frustrating, since I'll have to figure something else out if I'm not home to turn the light off and on..

So far so good.

I’m writing this review for the 10% off. I’ve just received these lights, but after a week of use they seem to be working well. They are certainly more attractive than the average grow light and give a very nice ambiance. I’m not quite sure they are worth the cost, but I would probably still recommend these to someone who wants a visually pleasing grow light.
